My FaBuLouS Day...!!!

Well, it sorta started the day before, when my brother couldn't find his car keys. He works for us, and we had a job that had to be done...so I loaded up my children to pick him up. I threw baby in the car seat carrier, but when I got out to my husband's Rendezvous he already had a facing forward seat hooked up. Because there was no room for both, I threw the carrier in the back, and put the baby in the other seat...



Later that night, my son came to me, and said that two of his top teeth were hurting, so brilliantly, I told him we would take him to the dentist the next day....The ironic thing was that I already had their 6 month checkups arranged....weird...Twilight Zone...


So, we get up, get ready, and I get four kids out the door to head off to the dentist...Riiiiiight...no baby car seat. It is in my husbands car, both baby seats are....LAME!!! So, I get on the phone trying to get a hold of my closest friends (by location) to save me...NO ANSWERS!!! AHHHH!! So I start driving the neighborhood....Brittany Spears style...only, I had my baby on the Five-year-old's lap!! It took three different houses, to finally find a poor unfortunate soul to pawn my baby off on...Thanks SO MUCH Andrea!! So then i was off...hoping not to be late...


We get to the dentist's office JUST on time. We got there just IN time for me to notice that my three-year-old had no shoes. LOVELY. No big deal...I will just carry him into the office...And THIS is when I notice how incredibly huge half of Carter's face is (the 7 year old). I ask him...


"What is in your mouth??" (cause we totally did the "pre-dentist" brushing...don't EAT anything!!!)

"Nothing...it's the owie that I told you about" ....!!! W O W...it was huge!!



Good thing we were at the dentist...he ended up having a massive abscessed tooth. The infection was almost up to his eye...when the dentist would push on his cheek...the infection would drain through his gums....EWWWWW!!! OWWWW!!



So, now we need to get antibiotics....more antibiotics...5 out of 6 of us have already BEEN on antibiotics within the last week....ear infections, strep, and now this...UGH!!



Well, It was imperative that we give him his first dose immediately, and it is about noon by now, and we are 20 minutes away from everything, so I told Carter that he wouldn't be going to school...water works!!??...Crap, he was not fly with that...It was the big day for the Valentines Parties (DuH...Why didn't I remember that??!!)...SOOOOO



I ghetto style hit them through a McDonald's drive-thru, check my half-swollen-faced son, and his sister in at school at school(all the while carrying Parker...), drop off the prescription, call a friend to pick up baby from the poor unexpected prey of unfortunate events (thanks Jenna!!!), run back home to get the Valentines the kids made for their teachers...cause we forgot them, Go BACK to get prescription, go BACK to school, carry the three-year-old in to drug my infected child(cause of course I wouldn't remember shoes when I went back home...Miss Brilliant today...), pick up baby, and go home....

Needless to say this all happened to be on the day that I have dance classes at my house (built in studio) for 4 hours, and I was totally drained....


You know....The genius that coined the phrase "Stay-at-home-Mom" was actually a complete idiot, or a guy....but most likely, it was both...!! My husband would have been in a corner shaking and sucking his thumb if he had had a day like that...(okay...so maybe he would have survived...but only barely...)



Wanna know the worst part???!! The next day...I had a doctors appt...and guess who's car seat is still in the back of my husbands car (after him telling me he would get it out!!!)....???



ROUND TWO....!!!!!????!!!! f i n e....BrInG It oN!!!!

Yikes! I have never had an abcessed tooth! Poor guy.

Oh, and you have the longest lashes I have ever seen!

That Girl in Brazil said...

Yikes - days like that = no fun. And I'm sorry, I had to giggle when your kid didn't have shoes. That is SO me.

Love your blog!

Sarah said...

You are so cute! Thanks for stopping by my blog home, I'm glad you found me so I could find you.

Rose said...

I feel for you. That whole experience sounds all too familiar. YOU SHOULD HAVE CALLED ME!! I could have helped!

Nate and Robin said...

I really hate days like that. They never seem to end when they start. My days like that will have me not being able to find my keys. :{
We hope that Carter feels better soon.

Joleen said...

Yikes! Sorry!
I have had days like that. Check my blog from last August...1st day of school! It was a doosey!

Laura said...

Life happens. That's what I always say. It kind of beats the other phrase, but it feels the same. And somehow you survive and move on to the next day. Sending everyone in your family healthy thoughts and prayers!

Thatcher Family said...

Yowsers! Whew....poor Parker! Is he feeling any better??

Nicole said...

That's scary for a kid to have an abcesses tooth. I'm sure that hurts! I have had lots of those days and I'm sure there will be more to come. But hey, that's why we are the moms, we can handle it. Can you imagine dad having that kind of day??? LOL

The Yearsley's said...

You crack me up like no other!!! I love the way you tell stories... it's like you're right in front of me telling me in person, I can almost hear your voice!!! You're so funny! Well I'm glad you survived your nighmarish day, and that I was able to help out somewhat!

Jen said...

Oh my what a day! I hope everyone is feeling better soon.

SouthfieldFam said...

I'm so glad I am not the only one who has those days! Sometimes it's a miracle all of the kids even end up in the car...shoes or no shoes! Glad you survived and if you ever need help let me know! I have care seats and boosters like you wouldn't believe! ;o)

A.Lee said...

Oh my goodness. That is one crazy story and I can't believe his tooth was that bad. Poor kid. I love your last few posts. I am dying about the "boobas" in church. That is so funny. I would have loved to hear that from my pew, but I'm sure you're glad not everyone over heard that one.

I remember when I had my first baby, I thought I had to have the car seat base to use the car seat, so I made my husband drive all the way home from work to drop it off so that I could go shopping. I was such a nerd.

klynch said...

Of all the days for me to take my kids on a little outing to the library and Albertsons! I could have totally helped you out! Sorry, I'll never leave my house again. :)
