Talk about anticlimactic. The boy goes in for the root canals, the Endo takes xrays and tells us that the teeth are still viable and growing and that he should return in six months. The actual canal will get smaller as he ages and the roots of his teeth will thicken, making the teeth stronger in the long run.

So that was good.

The book I'm reading? Or actually re-reading is I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb. It's the book club choice for next month and while normally I do NOT reread (with the exception of Harry Potter) I find I'm not minding this. I read it years ago, when it was first released and the story takes place in my hometown so there are a ton of little details I'm enjoying.

And awhile back someone asked how my son weaned himself off of the computer and video games. The answer is two-fold. A. A moratorium on any new video game purchases after about Feb/March. If he gets them as birthday gifts, fine but I don't buy anything new when I know the weather will be turning. Why encourage him?

and B. The weather. We live New England where the weather is uncooperative and not enjoyable for quite a few months out of the year. I mean, we all like sledding and skating but we don't tend to eat dinner outside and mow the lawn and explore the woods when it's twenty six degrees and raining. My kids end up with a horrible case of spring/summer fever when all is said and done and it usually results in my daughter swimming in the pond on the first hottish day in April and my boy catching salamanders and nightcrawlers and begging for baseball games.

Good news on the root canal!

Youngest likes his video games but he's always happy to play something else too - so I remind him.

I think I have to do the meme...

Very good news on the root canal!! Yippee!!

I think I read that book, but I'm not certain. I'm going to have to go back and check.

I'm with you on the video games. My son's dad bought him an Xbox (right after I bought him a PS2) and he plays so much at his dads that I don't buy him PS2 games anymore. Besides, he'd rather be out with his friends at my house.

Enjoy summer!!
