Why in the world does a Princess need 3 crowns??
About a month ago we noticed she had a brown spot on her back tooth. The dentist referred us to a Pediatric dentist who scheduled her to go into surgery. Monday was the big day. We woke up at 5:30am and got in the car, pj's ratty hair, no shoes and all (I was a bit embarrassed, what with the fact she was having surgery for rotting teeth and all!) . By 6:40am we were there. She didn't complain about the lack of food and chokky milk. I didn't like it when they gassed her and her eyes rolled back in her head - yikes that is a scary sight! about 1/10 of a second of freaking and then I let it go - I had to trust God. After 40 minutes they called me back to her. She came out of the anesthesia like she comes out of any night terror - well, TERRORIZED! :) She seemed so angry, it lasted for about 45 minutes. I kept making eye contact with the Mom across the room with her own Asian beauty. I was hoping my baby saying over and over "My teeth are HURTING me!" wasn't scaring the other 3 children in the room waiting to have their turn. Finally she fell asleep. I was able to talk to the other Mom. Her daughter Is from China too, she is 7 and had to have 3 crowns. hmmm very interesting. We had a great conversation. My baby woke up to 'Wonder Pets'. She has been fine ever since. I'm so hoping this is the end of our relationship with the Pediatric dental surgeon!
