Oh Monday

I didn't get any pictures of our drugged up tomboy today
but I did capture a few pictures of our little diva waking up from her nap.
Wow! If today was any indicator of what this week is going to be like, I don't want to wake tomorrow! Jayden went to the dentist and it all started out fine. We got there and played for about 5 minutes and then headed back to take the "magic potion" which Jayden drank like a pro. We then went back into the waiting room for another 5 minutes of play then I had to round her up to sit down why the magic started happening. After about 15 minutes she was looking pretty loopy and started getting giggly and didn't want to sit still at all. The dentist came 0ut and said it was time so we headed back, mommy carring Jayden and the good old dentist packing Soph, and that was when all the fun was about to begin! We got Jayden in the chair and got some laughing gas going and numbed her tooth then the dreaded things that they put in your mouth to keep it pried open came out and it was all down hill after that. Jayden hated it, and I didn't blame her, and then they had to stick some other thing in her mouth to keep her tounge out of the way. The whole thing lasted about 5 minutes, but she didn't enjoy one second of it. After that we got our instructions and got the girls packed in the car and my hell settled in. Jayden was a basket case. She wanted to walk around, she wanted to eat (all the things she couldn't have yet), she didn't want to rest and she just cried and squirmed and got mad and through one tantrum after another ALL morning, then some more in the afternoon before nap, and she woke up still in a pissy mood. FINALLY after dinner, and 40 pounds of food later, she was in much better spirits and we ended the night off great and learned that panda bears eat bamboo :) I will be scrubbing those teeth till they sparkle for now on, because I don't want to go through this again any time soon!

Final food for thought for tonight; Over 80% of babies with Down syndrome are born to women under the age of 35, and the average age of a mother of an infant with Down syndrome is 28 years. However, the incidence of births of children with Down syndrome increases with the age of the mother.
