Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri


They Love The Dentist

Am I the only mom whose daughters actually enjoy their dentist appointments?  Eva came into the kitchen this morning to tell me that her alarm didn't go off (we set it for 7:30 just to make sure she didn't oversleep).  I had to break the news to her that she got up an hour before the alarm.  She and I had a dentist appointment this morning that she was so excited to go to.

Up before the sisters.

Looks like fun, doesn't it?

Ivy's dentist appointment was rescheduled because her hygienist was ill.  She cried.  I'm glad they enjoy it so much because all 3 have to go back in 2 weeks to get holes filled and some sealants.  Do other adoptive moms have issues with holes in their children's teeth?  Eva has had 2 fillings due to holes and not cavities.  Joy has one cavity that completely broke off a corner of her molar.  Ivy had a cavity in her front tooth, but that was to be expected with her cleft and all.  I'm wondering if lack of nutrition in utero has affected their teeth.

And, Seth is still scheduled to be leaving on Sunday, six more days.  He already left his job to hang out with friends and family this last week home.  That familiar feeling is returning; the dread of saying good-bye.  I'm just doing my best to enjoy the time we have.

Seth always manages to get the girls all wound up.  Never a dull moment with him.

Sometimes he gets too wild with the girls.  Notice Eva is not present in the chaos?  She was in her room upset with her big brother.  She got over it rather quickly, though.  She can't stay mad too long.

We set up the badminton net for Jordan's surprise party a few weeks ago.  We are still enjoying it with the gang here at home.  The girls love to bring their blanket out and watch the competitive nature of our guys.

 This picture is for Luana.  Yes, this is our yard.  We have lots of green space.

7 kind words:


Piper has terrible teeth. Every day, I brush her teeth 3 times (sometimes 4), floss twice and yet every dentist appt, at least 1 cavity. Last year she had a 4 hour dental surgery where 16 of her 18 teeth were worked on. She is quite pleased with her 2 "shiny, silver princess crowns".


I always loved going to the dentist, too! Glad your girls don't fret about it.
I covet your yard!!


No holes here. In fact, the dentist said that Madeline's enamel looks great...perhaps because she came from a very small orphanage. I was surprised myself.

It looks like the girls have lots of fun with Seth. I bet they'll miss his antics.

Your yard?
Some serious envy over here.


We went to the dentist today, as well. I'm glad that your girls love it so much!


Glad your girls like the dentist. Hannah didn't mind and fortunately she had good early care and her teeth were healthy. Lauren will be going for the first time next week. Since nothing was really pressing we gave her time to get used to being here. We'll see how things look. My oldest daughter was 8 when she arrived from Russia with pieces of rotting teeth left in her mouth that needed immediate extraction. We had to do extensive dental care in the first years and orthodontic work too. She has a beautiful smile today- so worthwhile : )
