3. After years of waiting for the right time (as defined by an assortment of dentists, orthodontist, and oral surgeons), Will's two-year-old molar that never fully formed or emerged from his gums was finally removed on Wednesday. I have severe anxiety about all things dental, and even worse anxiety about medications - like the general anesthetic needed during the surgery to remove Will's tooth - that rob people of their faculties, so Tom graciously volunteered to completely rearrange his schedule and take Will to his appointment. Will did wonderfully throughout the procedure - the surgeon told him he behaved more maturely than most 15-year-olds, a compliment to which he held on tightly so that he could pass it along to me when he arrived home - and though there were a few rough moments during the 48 hours post-surgery, he hung in there.
5. I usually post links to pieces I've written a few at a time, but I wanted to share this link on its own because of its time-sensitve nature. When you have a moment, check out a variety of delicious meals and snacks as well as quite a few fun activities and crafts in honor of St. Patrick's Day.
Last weekend I made the clover-shaped Rice Krispie Treats, which the kids and their friends loved, and the weekend before that I tacked the wreath and the clover cubes so that I could add a little more fun and whimsey to our St. Patrick's Day decorations.
Happy St. Patrick's Day cooking, baking, crafting, and playing!
Linking up with High Five for Friday!
