Mom: Ben please come here and pick up these toys if you are finished playing with them
Ben: I will play with them again, I am just done with them for now.
Mom: I would like to sweep the living room, so please come get them now.
Ben: Yeah, they really like it in the living room better mom. They HAVE to stay there.
Mom: Well, if I have to pick them up, you know what happens. (in the mommy voice)
Ben: Okay, okay mom, don't have a "corn fairy"
Mom: [ Exits stage right before bursting into laughter]
SO, I am pretty sure he meant "don't have a coronary" and I am not sure where he heard it but it has been making me laugh for the last 24 hours. It is now a real phrase in our house. :) Oh how I love that boy. He brightens the darkest day I swear!
Later that day...
Ben: Mom, I think we should put my red roller skates on me and go outside to practice so I don't fall down on them so much.
Mom: Ben, you don't have any roller skates. (Plus there is a foot of snow on the ground)
Ben: Oh, right, I must have been "day seeing" Roller skates sure seem like fun!
***On another note*****
Both boys have been complaining this week of toothaches. Luke already had one cavity filled (and I felt like the worst mom EVER then) and is now complaining of a different tooth hurting. I looked, flossed, brushed and gave him some motrin before bed.
Ben was complaining during dinner of a tooth hurting while he was eating. Tonight while brushing his teeth I did see what MAY be a small cavity. UGH!
My question is...what is a mom to do?
I limit juice to once a day and even then it is diluted and served with a meal, I limit sweets and sugary foods, I brush their teeth twice a day and floss in the evenings. WHAT ON EARTH AM I DOING WRONG!?
DO I call the dentist emergency number or do I wait until Tuesday (or are dentists open Monday ,Presidents' day?) Luke was in quite a bit of pain tonight and Tuesday seems like a long while away!
