Magali Can't Consciously Go to the Dentist

Magali has my teeth... and my prediliction for candy. So she has a few cavities. OK, lots of cavities.

We went to the dentist to have them filled and she kicked and screamed and wouldn't get in the chair. The dentist said he could not work on her this way. He suggested we come back when they can give her nitrous oxide. We did and she screamed and wouldn't get in the chair. The dentist suggested we go to a hospital where she can be given general anesthesia because she just couldn't calm down.

So today Sara took her to Franciscan Hospital for Children and Magali was put under. When she woke up she had five teeth capped with silver and five other teeth with fillings. She was a little groggy but did very well today.

Dash was a wonderful big brother. He read to her and comforted her throughout the day.

Sara and Dan Engagement

We had a great time walking around Beacon Hill with Sara and Dan. Lots of laughing and goofing off, climbing fire escapes and swan boats. The wedding is at the Cape in July. We can't wait.

The Lonely Sea Monster

I stumbled across an amazing artist named Deanna Molinaro. She makes amazing little books that remind me a little of Edward Gorey, one of my great heroes. Anyway, I bought a book called "The Lonely Sea Monster". It is a hilarious tale of a monster and a little girl and the illustrations are sublime.

I knew Dash would love the book because a little girl gets eaten in it. Dash likes books about monsters eating little children.

The second picture is Dash getting to the part where the monster eats the girl.

The last picture is the dedication that Deanna wrote for Dash. She even drew a picture of the sea monster!

Man, does Dash love this book.

Magali's Manipulations

Magali has been dabbling in threats.

When it was time to take me to work this afternoon Magali decided she wanted to stay at home. When Sara told her she had to go Magali said, "If you make me go I'll cry the whole way in the car."

Then she started crying.

Sara said she couldn't have any dessert with dinner if she continued crying.

Then she stopped crying.
