A peaceful day

Phillipians 4:4-8

For with Thee is the fountain of life; in Thy light shall we see light. Psalm 36:9

We had to make an emergency dash to Swan Hill to the dentist today, because somebody was absolutely, totally, definitely positive that she had a whopping great hole in her tooth.

Which it turns out she didn't. As you can see by the very happy face.


So then we got to go out and celebrate with lunch by the Murray River. It was extremely excellent, and far cheaper than a filling would have been.

Is it wrong to eat sticky date pudding after the dentist?

One of these weeks soon, we're going to manage five full days of school, but I keep telling myself that it's days like today that she'll remember when she's grown, not a day when we ticked everything off on the To Do list.

I asked on Facebook this morning which subjects were your priority when you have a short day of school, and the answers were many and varied, and very interesting, so I'm going to ask again here:

If you know you're not going to get everything done, what do you first? Which subjects are not optional? Do tell.

That's a funny question for you to be asking right now, because today is a squeeze-in-just-a-little-school day for us too. I would like to say that things like math and grammar are a priority, but on the other hand those daily things will keep just as well until tomorrow; so if we have only a little time, we're more likely to squeeze in a history lesson or something else that's going to mess up the week if we don't get it done.

For us AO reads and math. AO reads aren't so hard to keep up now because my son is old enough to do most of them on his own, so he can bring them along if we have to leave the house. He can read and narrate in the car or wherever we happen to be. No matter what is going on, I will have them do a math lesson if at all possible. My son didn't do any math officially until lat 2nd grade, so we are behind by common standards.

By the way, was it just 12 year old molars for her? My son thought he had a cavity two weeks ago. We too had to go to the dentist, and it was just his molars coming in.

I did answer on FB. I think I was the only person to ditch math first if we were tight for time. ☺ Reading could always be done on a boat so music was the one thing that had to be done no matter what else got lost in the process.

That was a close call. Haha! But what you did is commendable for a few more reasons. Not only were you able to win yourselves a legitimate relief, you were also able to exhibit vigilance, which should definitely be inculcated in your daughter from this point on, not only as a tendency but also as a principle.

Hi there Friend! I don't get to read your blog all the time these days though seeing them come up on FB helps. I thought I would just pop over with a bit of free Friday night time. I just thought the comment on the end here was priceless! You have a VERY wide readership.

Thanks for the post. I was about to use dental implants for myself, so I just thought of going through various articles on dental care when I came across yours. Thanks!

Well, what was that “whopping great hole in her tooth” about? If it’s aching, then it must be something. Whatever it was, looks like it was nothing major though, so I guess it’s okay to indulge in that pudding. Just keep the sweet intake moderated, to make sure there’ll never be any wholes in her teeth in the future.

My priority would be biology and math. No matter what I always end up giving them preference and end scoring good in those subjects too. BTW what treatment you took at the dentist? I prefer going to Dentzz Dental Dentzz Dental
which is multinational brand of clinics across the developed countries. Would advice you to check whether it's nearby you.

Suresh Nanjagurd said...

Nice and innovative idea of spending time at the dentist. But it wont happen now because of the clinics like Dentzz

Milton Wilson said...

Definitely Math, but that's because it's a our weakest subject.

You are so lucky that your daughter WANTS to go to the dentist. It is a struggle to get mine excited about going for even a cleaning. I was recently told about a new dentist from a friend who had an excellent experience taking their kid. This is their website: aplusfamilydentistry.com/

On a short day, I feel it’s important to do what will bother me the most not to complete! I would agree that thinking there is a possible hole in the tooth would be one of those items. It is probably best to make sure from the right professional that everything is fine rather than continue to worry about it.
