Child #2 had a root canal today. Actually, she's got really bad teeth due to malnutrition when she was an infant. The woman who gave birth to her probably didn't have access to prenatal vitamins, therefore, my daughter may have not had the healthiest diet before she came to me.
She was a trooper!! Cried just a little. And a dear, wonderful friend met me at the dentist to keep me calm. I HATED taking my daughter in for something she wouldn't like, but it was best for her. Now she sports a stainless steel cap on one of her side teeth (we're calling it "Bling" like it's jewelry).
This mom thing is tiring.
