You won’t like me when I’m angry….

I turn green and get these huge muscles.  My clothes start to rip and come off but mysteriously my pants fit perfectly at the waist.

Yesterday was a rough emotional day for me.  When things get that way for me my body will shut down and make me sleep.  I was in bed at 7:30 I believe.  So, that tells you my body was over it.

Over our wonderful weekend we noticed a spot on Baby M’s tooth.  We were wondering if she had chipped a tooth from a fall she had a few weeks earlier.  Then of course I use Dr Google and read all sorts of things.  Some were about me being sick while pregnant may have messed with her tooth development.  Or that she had tooth decay, which is normal they say.  BUT Baby M doesn’t drink from a bottle.  She doesn’t drink juice.  Sugar isn’t a big part of our diet.  We brush her teeth.  Geeze louise we eat an excellent organic diet year round.  It’s not like I am letting her sip Mt Dew from her cup.  I had all sorts of things running through my head.
The dentist saw her yesterday after Lil O’s Jungle Book practice.  It is tooth decay.  I had to hold her down TWICE for them to look in her mouth.  I could have cried.  He couldn’t tell me why this happened.  We are very lucky to have caught it like right away because it will be an easy fix.  Baby M will see a pediatric dentist Thursday to make all the arrangements.  They will have to sedate Baby M to fix the teeth.  (There are four teeth bothered with the decay.)

I told him they’d have to sedate me as well when they fix her teeth because I will be a total mess!!!

I just don’t know how this happened.  I know there doesn’t have to be a reason.  I just know we don’t have dental insurance (With work so down at the moment for Superdad they axed dental when insurance renewed in November.) and sedation and fixing teeth are going to be $$$.

It’s okay.  Things will be fine.  I am not worried.  I can just vent on this blog to you guys!

So, you’d think that I’d had enough emotional stress for the day but you are wrong!

Remember when I blogged last week about hormonal teens boyfriend calling to start crap every week making her cry?

He of course did that again yesterday when we got home from the dentist.  Poor boyfriend messed with Supermom on a very bad day.  I could hear H raising her voice and pleading from her bedroom.  I marched back there and flung open her door to ask who she was talking to.  She told me to leave.  HA HA!!  I asked again, “WHO ARE YOU TALKING TO?”  She told me.  I tried to get the phone but she wouldn’t let me have it so I went to the living room and picked up the OTHER PHONE then walked back to her room.  H asked me to get off the phone to which I said, “Let me say what I want to say or I will make YOU get off the phone.”

I was so emotional I cannot remember word for word.  I do remember saying a few cuss words to which I am sorry.  BUT DAMMIT enough is enough.  It went like this, or close to it.

“I do NOT appreciate you calling here upsetting H.  You do this bullshit every week.  Things will be going fine then YOU call her and make her cry.  So what if she talked to another boy or ~insert things I cannot remember here~….  As far as I can tell my daughter loves you and ~insert more I cannot remember here~….  If you two cannot get your SHIT together then YOU will not be allowed to call here ANYMORE!”

I wish I could remember word for word.  My mouth was moving and my brain just couldn’t keep up.

I was shaking after this.  Toooo much I tell you.  Then I overcooked the burgers and steamed the broccoli to mush.  So, now you can see why I just went to bed with Baby M and went to sleep.

~H has already defended the BF this morning.  I asked her if his attitude changed once I got off the phone.  She said, “Yes, but he said he doesn’t call here to upset me all the time.  He just called here to fix things.”

I have one word to say to that.

Well dont mind me but her bf is playing mind games. Teen boys according to Dr.Phil be very mean and play mental games with teen girls. The boys feel like they have power because they make the girl cry, they have abilities to make the girl feel like it is all her fault.See where I am going MIchelle do not say your sorry for making her upset. Do not tell your teen girl sorry, your the mom you gotta be the level headed one. This boy needs to be stopped in his steps. Take it from a mom that has been there and done that. I have two girls 24 an 19 Lauren had a bf that did the same thing at age 16. Stop it now even if it means keeping them apart. She is a young girl who needs directions.
About baby M, I worked for Peds for many years, breast milk can cause decay as well. When kids nurse several times a day and for long periods of time there is sugar in breast milk and this too like regular milk and juices cause decay when there is contact on tooth surfaces. Do not beat your self up brushing her teeth slows the pregression of decay, but it does happen. Good luck with all your troubles this week, take care and take a deep breath, relax and open the window and scream lol.
Talk to the dentist that is going to do Baby M repairs explain you have no dental Insurance ask for a reduced fee as a self pay lots of doctors will cut you a break believe me I have done medical billing for many years. Mary

Mary is right about H this is a total control thing with this boyfriend. He knows with her staying upset he will get her to beg and pled for forgiveness and keep her on eggshells worring about every move she makes.

Baby will loose these baby teeth so these cavities wont be there forever. My Dad was born with bad teeth. Doctors think it was because my Mamaw was sick so much through being pregnant with him but don't really know. Sometimes there just are not answers for everything...

Mary ~ I am not telling either one of them I'm sorry.

Nip it in the bud as Barney says. HA HA!

At least I can laugh today about all this.

About Baby M ~ I know I have to stop blaming myself about all of this. We go Thursday morning to see the ped dentist. I will explain about all the insurance and hope they slash some pricing.

Thank you for your comment.
<3 Michelle <3

My daughter always had good dentist visits until one day when she was 10ish. He said she had six cavities. In six months?? I took her to another dentist. He said she had seven. I talked to him about it and he said that some of us are just born with more cavity prone teeth. There wasn't anything wrong with what we were doing.

When she was 17, she broke her jaw in her terrible car accident. The doctors wired it shut for 6 weeks. She brushed where she could reach and swished regularly with mouth wash, but when the wires were removed she had 14 cavities that needed attention!! Fourteen!!

She has weak teeth...I blame her dad.

Good luck with the boyfriend situation. I don't have any advice except to stay strong!! Hugs.

Sorry to hear about the baby and the teeth. We still have insurance but with the economic situation my husband's job switched providers and got a really crappy plan (cheaper for them) now we are so discouraged to go because the co-pay is a bit ridiculous. But you're right, it will work out.

I am so afraid when my kids get older because I know I will have to deal with similar situations. You handled that well. My kids always say I'm crazy. Who knows how I'll deal with these things if/when the situations arises
