Flowers On Wisdom Teeth Day!

Becca had her Wisdom teeth extracted yesterday. Mom (as in me) did the duty and drove her up to the Dr. and held her hand and calmed her for as long as the Dr. and Nurse would let me. Then I went out to WAIT!!!
Who is this hard on?????
Becca had Laughing Gas, and a nice trip from it according to her, and then general Anesthesia and woke up 45 minutes later asking if it was over. I sat and waited and stitched in the waiting room and fretted about how it was going. That is my job as a mother and I embrace it, and am grateful for the opportunity to be there and be the first person she sees when she comes off her little trip!!
After she passed her sobriety test ,we were released and stopped to get a chocolate shake (with a spoon ) for the trip home. Then a stop for meds at our wonderful Independently owner pharmacy and arrived home 3 hours after leaving.
tom arrived home from doing some Pro-bonno work for Stafford County Fire (they were running around like crazy trying to inspect all of the buildings after the earthquake). With him he brought these gorgeous flowers!! I could understand the lovely bouquet of his Little girl but I was not sure what was going on with the Dozen Long Stem Reds for me???

He said that they were for me , of course. Because.... he loves me and because he wanted to thank me for doing all of the Dr. visits for shots and vaccinations and tooth extractions and the like for both kids!! He has a very hard time seeing his own kids cry and in pain. At that point I lost it and had a good little cry! How sweet IS THAT!!! How WONDERFUL IS HE!!!!!

One of the best decisions I ever made was saying Yes to this Man!!!!

Oh Elizabeth! That just about made ME cry....what a sweet man. My husband does the same kinds of things for me, and I am so glad we found our way to each other. How wonderful it is to be able to go through these things with a terrific partner! I'm glad your daughter is doing well, too. :)

Sounds like you have a superhero husband too. Glad your daughter is okay, lots of blended food for a week or so, not a fun thing. Kudos to Mom for all the hard work, you deserve the flowers. xox Corrine

Did you have to make my eyes tear up so early in the morning? How sweet and what a thoughtful guy. Loved the story and what a special mom you are to share it. I know she is happy that is behind her!

AWWW...very nice gesture on DH's part!

Hope daughter recovers without too much discomfort.

I love a man who loves his women. You have quite a jewel there, my friend, but I'm sure that you know that!!

So glad you have a good man too and a much happier daughter now as well I would think, those wisdom teeth can be very painful.
