dentist + girl = Oh My Heck!
Took all three wee Thorns to the dentist today. No one prepared me for how horrible it would be. All the years of anxiety and stress with two autistic boys could not have prepared me for the meltdown at the dentist with smallest Thorn. It was a blow out. It was Little Shop of Horrors in that dentist chair. She flew in the air, clung to me, wailed, even refused to say a Hail Mary with me. Someone stole my little even-keeled punkin and gave a small octopus with tentacles and suckers. It was just bizarre.
Then I got lectured. I should have let her come back alone, compared it to pre-school and not wanting Mommy to leave. (*it sounded like this to my ears: Bady mommy, bad mommy, bad mommy, you stink....rah rah rah). Whatever. At the point I had checked out. Now the dental work either needs to be done after a dose of Valium or in the hospital. I am choosing not do deal with it and wrote this post just to get the whole event off my chest. I am worn out. Oddly enough, I didn't need the coffee today. I'm awake, I'm awake!
