Best Husband Ever, and other news.

So, I just want to tell everyone that I have the best husband ever. You may THINK that you have the best husband, but sorry, you are wrong. Cause I got him. Yesterday, on his day off, while I was eating at Olive Garden and getting a pedicure, my husband SCRUBBED our house. I mean it, counter, chairs, floors...toaster crumb catcher and can opener for heavens sake! He did all the dishes and cleaned until he was exhausted. And this is after we spent the morning taking down christmas decorations, rearranging furniture, and cleaning out from under our couch (can you say major yuck!). He's amazing. I don't think I thank him enough for all of the wonderful things he does for me and our family. He really is the best! So thanks again honey!!

In other news...As many of you know, I have major issues with the dentist. Now, I know that no one likes the dentist, but I have serious issues. I am trying my very hardest not to pass those issues on to my children, and I think I am being fairly successful so far. We just returned from my kids 2nd dental check-up. Beth did AMAZING! She got x-rays, she had a cleaning, and full check-up without a peep of sadness. And the tv on the ceiling was even broken! I thought James would just have a quick check again cause he's so little, but he was doing so well that they went ahead and gave him a cleaning too. He cried a little, but nothing major and mostly let them do their job. Both kids were cavity free and cheerful as we left the office with balloon creations in hand. I'm glad to see I haven't passed on my pathological fears nd the kids are starting off with much better dental experiences than I ever did. Hallelujah! Thank heavens for a wonderful pediatric dentist and being able to act calm around my kids when I am internally freaking out. Woohoo!

Is the same place you took them before? Over behind the China Chef kind of? Livvy's up for her next cleaning soon and since we have to pick a new dentist anyway (thanks insurance!) maybe we should go somewhere kid friendly!

Yep! Its called Kids Dental Barn and its in the granger medical building, and they are awesome. I highly recommend it. I mean, they got Beth to be good and calm! Drama queen!

I must be a wierdo then, cause I love the dentist! I love that super clean feeling when you're done. I don't even mind getting a cavity filled. It's just inconvenient to eat or talk for a while. ;)

I don't mind the dentist either...but I know you had bad experiences. We won't go into that though...

Good job staying calm!

Can I borrow your hubby for a few days? My house is a mess. Mine never does that kind of thing. NEVER.
