Oral-B Mommy Party - getting ready

Today is the day!  Our guests are scheduled to be here from 2-4.  We are going to have some yummy snacks, watch an awesome movie (Winnie the Pooh), and try out some great tooth care products.  Please check back later this week for photos and details of how this amazing party goes.

30 days of thanks - Where are my posts?

Wow!  Looks like my posts haven't been showing up.  I assure you, I have been thankful for things every day this month, not just the first 8 days!  I will be figuring out what happened to the posts & getting them reposted as soon as I can.  Thanks for bearing with me!!  (Ooh, I can use that for today!)

Oral-B Mommy Party - preview

I was chosen to host another Mommy Party from Mom Select and Mommy Parties!  I'm so excited!  This one is an Oral-B party.  I was sent a box full of goodies including the new Winnie the Pooh dvd, popcorn and toothbrushes, toothpaste and body wash to hand out in goodie bags to our guests.  As soon as I opened the box my 3 year old got so excited to see everything.  I told him we were going to have a party and he immediately started naming off all of his friends that he wanted to come over.  I am getting ready to send the invites out now.  Can't wait until our party. 

Check back to see pictures and read all about how our awesome party goes.

30 days of thanks - day 8

Today I am thankful that my son's dental issue isn't as bad as it could be.  If you check my post from a few days ago where I am thankful for insurance, you'll see what happened. 

He got in to see the dentist today and they prescribed him antibiotics and a follow up appt for next week to have his tooth pulled.  It really sucks that my 3 year old is going to be missing his front tooth for a while, but at least they aren't going to put him through a root canal to try to save a baby tooth.

I am thankful I have the patience to put up with rude people.

And that's all I'm going to say about this crappy day.

30 days of thanks - day 6

Today I was going to say that I was thankful for the time change.  I was really looking forward to sleeping for an extra hour.  BUT, that didn't happen.  I was up at 6:00!  And my kids weren't too far behind me.

So instead, I am thankful to be spending the day with my family!

30 days of thanks - day 5

I put in my last pair of contacts yesterday and headed out of the house.  My left eye soon started to hurt, so I was rubbing it and just assumed I had scratched it a little.  When I got home I took my contacts out to let my eye heal.  I put them back in this morning, only to find that my left eye started hurting again.  So I took the left contact out and examined it.  And it has a rip in it!  GREAT!!  Did I mention this was my LAST pair?  And I don't have vision insurance?

I started calling around to make an appointment and everybody in my area is booked until NEXT Saturday.  I finally called the place I went to for my last exam and told them what happened.  The girl said that if I came in she would give me a pair of trial contacts to hold me over until I could get an appointment.  So I flew out the door and got there as quick as I could.  And I can see again!

So, today I am thankful for the nice girl at the eye center.

30 days of thanks - day 4

Today I am thankful for my sister.  She decided to move to Florida and will be staying with us until she gets settled in.  She made it in today and we are so happy to have her here with us.  My 3 year old has been asking me when she was going to be here for days now!

30 days of thanks - day 2

Today I am thankful that we have insurance.

My son fell on his face over a year ago and bent his teeth up pretty good.  When it happened, I rushed him to the ER and to a dentist.  They both said he was fine and that we would just have to wait and see if there was any damage. 

This morning while brushing his teeth, I found that one of the teeth he hurt before was a little loose and he had an abscess. I called the dentist who said that it was most likely caused by his accident.  Now he has to go in to get antibiotics and find out what needs to be done to it (root canal, extraction, etc).  Poor guy is only 3!

Thankfully, his dental coverage just went into effect yesterday!!  Talk about some awesome timing!

30 days of thanks - day 1

This morning we went to the park so that my son could play with his friend. So, today I am thankful that my son has a friend to play with.

30 days of thanks

In honor Thanksgiving this month, I've decided to be thankful for something every day.  I plan to do a new post for each day throughout month of November.  Please feel free to post comments along with me every day.
