DS1, 9, has an appointment at the dentist tomorrow, for a big filling, he usually has gas and air but the waiting list was too long so he has decided to be brave and go without.
Anyway, he wants his dad to take him. He dad said okay (which makes a change), and I thought it a good idea as he has had other minor ops and treatment lately which I have always taken him for. Also, I have DS2 who is 4 and he might get a phobia of the dentist if DS1 was to make a fuss. Also, I am pg and tearful and a state really!
But I was just thinking that his dad will have to have a day off work, drive 70 miles round trip and lose a days pay (money is tight for him at the moment), while I will be sat at home 5 mins from the dentist.
I have spoken to DS1 but he really wants his dad to take him.
well that's just great! They have just phoned me from the dentist and the dentist has been off and there wasn't enough time to do the treatment so they've put a temp filling and he has to go back in two months!!
