Queens wear crowns...

I told Bella that I was getting a crown today. 

She immediately responded that it was because I was the queen (and she was the princess and Jax was the prince, of course).

Love this kid.

But, the crown I meant is strictly limited to my teeth.  As in dental crown.  My first...but not last. 

I just have one thing to say about today's dental visit...

14 shots kept my mouth numb for 9 hours.

Yes, 14 shots.

It wouldn't numb...I had three rounds of anaesthesia shot into my mouth.  The last round worked overtime.  9 hours later I could actually feel my mouth working again.  I am not looking forward to the second one...

What a long two weeks...

If there were two weeks we could just wipe out...I choose the last two.  I have been up to my elbows in snot, vomit and tears for two weeks.  Ugh.  Its kept me from doing almost anything productive and exhausted me in the process so now I'm struggling with a cold of similar proportions.

We can't seem to get rid of the cough...Bella seems to have inherited my chronic cough after a cold.  Poor kid.  I'm actually trying some allergy medicine.  Its only been 2 days, but I do sense a difference in her.  Hmmm...allergies...something you don't think about unless you have them.  (it was a suggestion from my allergy ridden neighbor.)

And so there is the end of the last two weeks...may they never be repeated again.
