Just another manic Tuesday!

We started out today getting ready early and dropping off the van for the seasonal tire swap for snow tires along with an oil change, and the DVD player that I bought (off eBay!!!) to replace our broken one in the van installed...finally! It works! Yay!
Happy Kids for holiday travel--CHECK! Did not have to spend $1000 to replace it--CHECK!

After my darling husband was dropped off at work, no matter how badly Joann's, the grocery store and about 5 other places tempted me---it was off to the library to drop off books and get new ones and back home to do schooling. We are on a mission to stay on task daily so eventually when we have snow we can give up and run outside to play! :) It seemed like only 20 minutes later and an English assignment finished that it was time to hit the orthodontist follow-up appointment. Now I am not sure why but all of a sudden I don't like this guy anymore. Is that wrong? He seemed fine but today he seemed almost impatient with Dakota's curiosity regarding his own teeth molds and what it was really going to be like in his mouth...I think that is a fair enough investigation! How do you tell an orthodontist that you would like him to forward his plan on to someone who is fun with kids because someone is getting $1200 of my money and I would prefer it to be the one that makes my kid feel good!!! Let's hope someone just threw up on him during a fitting and he was just having a bad day!

Yep...10 years old and Dakota is destined to get top braces and an extender in the roof of his mouth. We will wait until January so my flexible spending account will "account" for all of it! lol
He isn't looking forward to 10 months without gum or sticky candy but hopefully this will be all he needs. He has only lost like 6 teeth so far but this is mostly to make room in his mouth for the ones coming in the future.
