I wish to hell we had insurance for the kids, including dental coverage. Gha.
And I'm glad I'm not there listening to the drill.
Did I mention that we are going to make Sean pay us back for this root canal?
Why, you ask?
Because for the last four years I have nagged him every morning and night: brush and floss.
And for four years, he has NOT. He tells me he has brushed maybe once a week if he felt like it, and hasn't flossed ONCE since I joined the family.
And now his teeth are breaking in half and costing thousands of dollars to fix. Am I supposed to stand over him in the bathroom and make sure he's brushing? I freakin' think not. Telling his brothers works just fine for them. When I married this family he was 12, more than old enough to parse a simple order.
He made his bed, he can lie in it.
Since Sean sure doesn't have $1800, he will work it off at slave wages. I'm going to have the cleanest house and yard in all of Texas for the next year or so.
