the dentist. a seemingly harmless place right? heck no! this morning i was blessed with the wonderful oportunity to escort three very tired ( 8 in the morning) and grumpy siblings to the dentist. school was canceled in anticipation for bad weather, which is now here, but the kids still had to go to their appointment for teeth cleanings. so into the car, well truck wee went, surprisingly with very little fighting or violence. down the road we drove. i tried my danrdest to not let exhaustion from no sleep and little relaxing take over me. our arrival time wass about 15 minutes early but no big deal right? wrong apparently doors cant be opened at his dentist until exactly eight. ugh, this is where it all plummeted downhill. we sat in the hall just inside the first door waiting for them to open the main door for 15 minutes and i guess kids hate being tired, cold, and going to the dentist becausse they were so loud frustrating, annoying, rude, and many other words i choose not to publish. the oldest one, who i thought would be best behaved was annoyed with every thing, noise, movement that anybody made. stop it, shut up, get away, knock it off, just a little sample of what i heard, lucky me. then we got in the main door but before i could even feel my fingers there was a fight over seats, who stole whose, who was where first, and randomly who had the worst morning breath ( they just didnt know they all stunk). sawyer the eight year old was pulled to the toys, army men, dragons, star wars ships, and he started playing, but not quietly not even close to quietly, he was making even gun sound known to man, and dying sounds, smashing sounds, and flying the ships around the office. which normally could be cute but it was too early and i had been up wit him till 11 and fell asleep in his bed till 1:30 then got up to mop before the kids got up and i had to space. now i know how mom feels, i love u mom more than u could ever know. so as i was saying well i guess as i was complaining, sawyer was loud levi was annoyed with sawyer and phoebe was.... wow i guess she was good thankks beef. then a sign that god is up there and does love me, the assistant asked for levi to go back. now dont get me wrong i love my brothers and sisters but he was just making my life and that morning miserable beyond words. so i was excited i thought isnce they all had an apt. for 8 that they would all go back at 8, but i guess statan exists too and he wanted me to be mad as all get out so they did not come for the other two until a half hour later. and let me tell ya that half hour was 2 hours long in my head. sawyer was running around, phoebe was talking to me and her morning breath was making me sick, and when i told sawyer to sit me acted like i was half inch tall and just looked back at his game. them levi was sent back to me, how blessed am i? he was in an even worse mood becasue he said the lady made his gums bleed like 3 times. then sawyer was called for and the room got significantly quieter. ha oh sawyer is such a typical boy i love it. so now i was thinking drat im gonna have to wait for them to take them back one at a time, and that i was not ok with, so i got up to tell them that. just as i stood the lady came for phoebe and i sat back sown, major argument avoided right then. then it was only levi and me, but dont worry we had tof ight the whole itme because i was tellinig him to grow up and help out a little more while dad was sick and he said rude things back. people i dont like rude things, especially when they r directed to me. so i was not very nice back. so this lady pops herr head out and says she needs x rays. like im stupid and she can just tell me then charge my parents an arm and leg. how annoying can one day be really? so i said to her ok but does she really need them because i know she gets the at the orthodontist and she went there yesterday. she said well wee need current ones on file. what a load of junk, she really ecpects me to fall for that load of crap. not today lady im too far into being a jerk this morning i might as well just offend you too. so no was my resounding response. she hates me now but really just put ur name on the ever expanding list lady. so the kids got done sawyer came out with a roar and i set up next times apointments for three of the 4 kids still at home. levi was trusted witht the keys to start the truck so it would get warm, and he took phoebe and sawyer with him. then not even 2 minutes later he was back and complaining how the kids were annoying, which was exactly what i was thinking too. i looked at him with stress, distain, and so much anger he just knew i was fuming inside. he blurted out, they were annoyiong me and teasing me about my cavity. i didnt even say anything until we walked out to the truck, then i let him know that he was simply acting like a 2 year old and he needed to stop. he threw a fit and got out of the car just after a comment of some kind about not riding with me. well hate to tell u this but i am your only hope here buddy so jump back in and we can go home and fight there. this was my sweet reply. so then we cruised down the road covered in ice and snow with our hearts feeling a little cold as well. i guess thats how life is some days, but the good news is the fun, dancing, singing, messing around, cooking, laughing day we had later and all went to bed with smiles and defrosted hearts.
