On the go...Here and There

I was not looking forward to yesterday at all.  It didn't help that Maison woke up at 4:30, Peter woke up at 5:30, and Abigail shortly after that?  Each kid had an appointment yesterday and Peter had basketball practice in the evening too!  So, we all were pretty busy!!  

Maison did NOT pass his newborn hearing test 100% in his left ear and at 6 months old I am finally taking him in to get it done.  Yes, I procrastinated a little too long.  I am pretty sure he is fine, but I wanted to get it done anyway.  It turned out that I will have to take Maison back in because the machine is very touchy.  The slightest noise or movement it seemed would make it start over.  So, the results were inconclusive at this time.  I rescheduled the appointment for a week from Friday to try again.

I also scheduled a hearing test for Abigail who is 3.  She hasn't had one done since she was a baby and she was a late talker so it didn't hurt to see how she is hearing.  The reason is, is because I had speech problems when I was little and I had tubes put in and later taken out.  I thought maybe, just maybe, that was why she was a late talker!  It never hurts to check it out, right?  Well, it turned out that Abigail is just a lazy talker and all she needs is Speech Therapy, which is what we are doing presently.  

Later in the day I picked my 9 year up from school and took him to have a consultation with an oral surgeon.  Peter is SUPER excited about that.  That was sarcasm folks!  What 9 year old would be excited about going to an oral surgeon?  For the stickers?  I feel so bad for him.  At first he was supposed to get 2 teeth pulled, now it may be 3!  I haven't even had to have any teeth pulled and he is 9 and having to get 3!  Well, it turned out that he will only have to get 2 teeth pulled!  That doesn't make it any better, but especially to a 9 year old.  So, now the BIG awful decision a Mom has to make... local anesthesia or and IV?  Does anyone have thoughts on this?  I would love to hear what you have to say.  My son hates shots, I mean REALLY hates shots (he cries at the thought of it), so I was thinking the IV.  With IV, I am aware there will be risks involved, but for Peter I think it would be best!

Well, that's pretty much my day yesterday!  Now, today I get to stay home!  So excited!!  Sweatpants and sweatshirts all day long!  What a glorious day it will be!!
