Yesterday we went to the beach with several of our friends. We had kids ranging from a new baby to 5 years old. It was a blast watching them all play in the surf. We took this group photo after all our kids descended on one little kids tidal pool. I think this other kid was curious at first and then happy to have lots of playmates. Later that night I thought I would save time by starting the bath while I cleaned up the kitchen. Gress ran in to check the water and I heard him screaming, “mom, it is really full.” So, the kids took baths with the water to their necks. Mcree thought he was in a swimming pool and just swam around the whole time. I love when the kids are fed, kitchen is clean and the boys are clean in their pjs. I could have accomplished nothing else that day and that would be enough.
This week, Gress and I also got our teeth cleaned. He was a BRAVE guy. Earlier that week I told him we were going and he started saying he had a bump on one of his teeth and one of his teeth were loose. I just figured he was making up things to show the Dentist. Just as he got into the Dentist’s chair, he started telling them all these things. She started looking around and said that he had a bunch of stuff stuck behind one tooth. It took her many implements and different flosses to get it out. She said, it looks like meat. And she said it looks like he has it in between a lot of his teeth. Ok people, we brush his teeth, even with an automated toothbrush, EVERY DAY! I told her we had eaten deer meat almost every night of that week (remember the deer Rad butchered in the kitchen..FINALLY we cooked just a little..but honestly so much we had to eat leftovers for the whole week). She said his teeth were so close together that he may be a candidate for daily flossing. As if flossing my teeth daily isn’t enough, now I have to do it with another little person. But we both got A+ checkups (okay maybe a B- for me because they did talk to me about not brushing my teeth too hard.) Glad that is done for awhile. Now onto flossing. 🙂
