Wisdom Teeth

Ok so I finally have something to write about. I had my wisdom teeth out on Thursday. My dentist gives you 3 sleeping pills and an anti nausea pill. I took these pills 45 mins before my appointment so when I showed up they get you all comfy so you can fall asleep. So they put the gas on me and started to numb me up and I started watching Grounded for Life. The dentist kept coming in and checking on me but I still wasn't asleep nor was a tired. I was very very very comfy with the laughing gas but not tired. Finally they gave me another pill (which he says he has never given a patient more than 3) and turned out the lights so I closed my eyes and tried to sleep. It never came so they started pulling out my 4 wisdom teeth. So I was able to watch my entire movie and have all 4 teeth extracted (only one was impacted) and I was awake the entire time (which my dentist says has never happened with one of his patients before). I feel like a medical mystery. I have been really good though. I mean I have been soar and a little swollen but I think that I have fared well.
In other news Tatum is growing like a weed. He is now wearing 3 to 6 months clothes and just turned 3 months today. He is so much fun. He has turned into a thumb sucker. He wakes up in the middle of the night and noisily tries to get his thumb in his mouth but manages to turn himself sideways. It is so nice to have family around who is willing to watch him and even some take him over night for me and Cody's sanity. He slept over at my parents on Friday night and they said that he was really good.. which is nice cause I told Tatum to not burn any bridges so others wouldn't not want to take him for the night.
I already got my mothers day present. I had decided a while ago that I wanted a VitMix blender that they demo at Costco. So we were at Costco yesterday and they said this was the last time they were here until September so I "talked" (Cody is a sucker to me) into getting me the blender now. We have already used it once and am going shopping tomorrow to make a bunch of stuff. We also got the attachment that grinds wheat. This blender does everything! It makes juices, smoothies, and even soups because the blades go so fast. I am way excited to try a bunch of things out and maybe even get my daily veggies eaten. Tatum also got his Easter gift early. We were at Cody's parents last Sunday and our sister-in-law brought over an exersaucer for Tucker to play in. We put Tatum in it as well to see how he would do and he seemed to like it. So we bought one on sale at Target and it is cute and all but I guess the one our sister-in-law- has is a little older and therefore in his exersaucer he is a few inches too small so his feet just hang there. It is really cute but I think he will have fun as he gets older.


  1. I always knew you were a medical mystery!

  2. You are more than welcome to borrow the saucer after Tucker is done w/it :)

  3. They couldn't get me knocked out when i got my wisdom teeth out either. i felt like i was falling out of the chair the whole time, and i was ready and willing to be sleeping for it, but i couldn't get there. i ended up crying the whole time because i thought something was wrong with me. Medical mysteries...

  4. I had no idea that you had a blog!! I'm silly. Well I will have to add your's to our list of family!
