Its been one of those days today, and not a good end to a naff week. Have felt fed up this week for one thing and another, mostly a bit stressed with things, letting them get me down but today was the icing on the cake!
My little boy (age 6) has got a bad upper front tooth (it is basically dead as he bumped it when he was little), this has now caused him to have an abcess on the gum above it!!!! Now even I wouldnt want an abcess and I am 36 let alone 6!!! I got him an urgent appointment today with a different dentist and it was a very awful experience. The dentist sighed and said it was an abcess and what did I want to do!! HE needs his tooth out! So we decided to try and do it there and then! Well he managed to do the whole needle thing and then Evan freaked out!! There was no way he was going to let him take his tooth out! It was awful, he was in tears, I was holding back the tears! We both left feeling traumatised!!
I know in the grand scheme of things it is not a major thing, there are poorly children who every day need to suffer with treatment to help them, but it is hard to see your child in pain and so very very frightened!
Since we have got home he seems to have got over it but we still have to try again as it needs to come out!
I managed to make a card though today!! Hurray, only my 2nd one in July! THis one is for the Friday Sketchers challenge and it is for one of the teachers are my boys school who organises the after school cricket club which Ross has thoroughly enjoyed! He doesnt really have his own class so I thought he wouldnt get many cards etc
Papers are a mixture of the Junior Varsity and the Designer Paper Pad which is a Level 1 hostess set. Sentiment is from Circle of Friendship.
I have punched out 2 stars and customised them with my own cricket balls made with the 3/4 inch punch.
Bye for now and sorry to drone on earlier!
