I was a wreck yesterday (Monday) and this morning (Tuesday). Besides recuperating from a busy July 4th, I had a couple of things on my mind.
First, I was nervous about Sebastian starting a new camp today, his first day at Camp Kingfisher at Chattahoochee Nature Center which I know he loves because he went last year and LOVED it. In addition to worrying about his first day at camp, I was very worried about Madelyn’s 9am dentist appointment. Ahh!
The Dentist Issue
My issue with the dentist situation
Today’s appointment would be Madelyn’s second visit to the dentist. Actually this might have been her third dentist visit, I may have blocked one visit out… I don’t know. She did great at her last visit so *I don’t know why I was worried*, that’s just the way I am. I worry.
I got a call from the receptionist at the dentist’s office, Post Oak Pediatric Dentistry in Marietta, yesterday to confirm Madelyn’s appointment and to let me know that she shouldn’t have anything to eat or drink for two hours before her appointment. What?! Oh Maaaaan!
I immediately started thinking that Madelyn was going to freak in the morning because she wouldn’t be able to give have her morning apple juice. But then I remembered that Sebastian had to be at camp at 9 this morning, the same time as Madelyn’s appointment. I thought if I took Sebastian to camp and Tim took Madelyn to her dentist appointment, I wouldn’t have to deal with feeling terrible about Madelyn not geting to eat or drink. So that’s just what I did. I took Sebastian to camp. The really funny thing is that Madelyn didn’t even wake up until 8:30! I called Tim to make sure that everything was OK (to make sure that she wasn’t freaking out about not getting to eat or drink) and found that Tim wasn’t even awake to get her ready so she didn’t even have time to be thirsty before they left for her appointment.
All that f***ing worrying for nothing!
Because I was in such a hurry to get Sebastian and I out of the house this morning and avoid breaking Madelyn’s thirsty heart, Sebastian and I darted out the door at about 7:30, a little early to be leaving for camp. As we were getting in the car I realized that we hadn’t eaten (whoops!) so we stopped at Einstein’s Bagels where we had a nice breakfast and I worried about Madelyn.
Sebastian went to Camp Kingfisher last year and LOVED it but because I’m a worrier, I was concerned that he would be shy or nervous on his first day but had a great time and told me all about it tonight. The name of his camp group is Crunchy Katydids. He thought that was really funny.
So now I’m worried about Madelyn’s swim class at Aqua Tots tonight because she’s going to a different location than usual and she doesn’t like change.
Swim update: So, we went to swim and Madelyn was perfectly fine at the new location. Go figure! She LOVES Aqua Tots and even floated on her back all by herself for the first time today! Way to go Madelyn!
The moral of the story is that I should stop worrying. Everything went great.. camp, dentist appointment, and swim, and all that energy I spent on worrying was for nothing.
Energy can be better used elsewhere.. like on the treadmill.
Awe crap.. I really should get on the treadmill. Now, I’m worried about that. I’m going to bed.
