Samantha had her first trip to the dentist today. She was so excited. She took some music to listen to in case she got nervous and she also brought Baby Sister. She did very well letting the hygienist polish her teeth, take pictures, and even floss. She checked out just fine.

Samantha clutched her toothbrush and dental floss until we got home. Shortly after she decided she wanted to try and floss herself. She pulled out the entire container of floss and was trying to figure out how to weave it between her teeth. I should have taken a picture!

Happy Valentines Weekend

Friday morning, 8 a.m. meeting with no coffee. Ugh.

The kids did well and got off to Tanya's early today for said meeting. Samantha got to eat her first "cinnamon" toast this morning. Ugh oh, did I create a monster?

Samantha got quite the loot at her valentines party yesterday. There were way too many stickers in her bag and she covered herself with them as soon as she got home. Shortly after Alyssa was choking and threw up a sticker. Needless to say, that was the end of covering our clothes in stickers. Now I regret getting rid of my sticker album from when I was a kid. I guess I'll just have to have Samantha create her own book.

Samantha's class went on a field trip to the Fire Department this week. Most of the kids were nervous, but the firefighters did a great job at gaining their trust.

Samantha was less than thrilled about the trip. She was worried that the siren was going to sound. Despite my reassurance, she was never quite comfortable.

At any rate, Mommy had fun and took lots of class pictures.
