Word(ish) Wednesday

Lately I've been thinking how we're not the most perfect parents ever. Yesterday kind of proved my point. T went to the denist & she has 2 cavities @ 4 years old, does that happen? I don't think kids usually get cavities that young. I don't remember how old I was when I had my 1st one. Since day 1 brushing her teeth has been a fight. Most nights she gets punished for not brushing good. We even got her a cute spin brush that she got to decorate with stickers. That helped for about a week. She has to go back to the dentist in December to have the cavities filled. 2 different days. They will give her laughing gas & want to try to keep it positive. I'm hoping that once she goes to have them filled it will make her want to brush & floss, so this won't happen again.

Other things we're not so great about,
1. Veggies-She pretty much eats no veggies now. we do try to get her to eat them & she does take a mulivitamin.

2. Baths-She usually has 3 a week, the nights before school.

3. Sleep-She goes to bed late. We've been doing a bit better with this. Her bed-time is 9pm. Somtimes it's 9;30-9:45.

4. Cleaning up after herself. We really need to work on this. I think she will someday be on the show Hoarders since she keeps every straw, smartie wrapper, collects rocks, leaves, sticks, etc...

Don't you worry about any of that! Is your child alive? Safe? Loved? Healthy? Happy? If you answered 'yes' to these questions you're golden! :-)
