My littlest angel is doped up on Valium and Demerol right now. She had some dental work done this morning. She is sleeping it off in the other room.
The poor child's new molars came in without enamel. Her baby teeth are weak, but this is a new low. The one that she had filled today was rotting before it was in fully. They sealed the other 3 in hopes of warding off some of the inevitable decay. It is a long road ahead of her. She already has 3 crowns on some baby teeth. That was a year and a half ago and required complete sedation. That was fun.
Her brother has never had a cavity.
But my question is this: as I'm looking over my traumatized child half sleeping in the dentist chair still with all kinds of appliances sticking out of her mouth and oxygen hooked up to her nose, am I a bad mother because I'm thinking, "I should pluck her eyebrows while she's out."
