My morning was spent with Oscar at the dentist. Poor Oscar. His teeth are literally rotting out of his mouth. My dentist assures me it’s genetic and I can personally vouch for Oscar’s good brushing and flossing habits (even mouth wash!), but this sort of thing always feels like a parenting fail. Mostly, it’s just awful to see your child in pain.

He has another consultation tomorrow, and a tooth extraction scheduled for Thursday morning. Sigh.

On a lighter note, check out this optical illusion tape. Wouldn’t it be funny to receive a hinged box in the mail? Also making me happy: we’ve outgrown our tiny kitchen table and I just found a new one! It’s round and industrial feeling and I love it. The table will be delivered this week. I can’t wait to see what you think of it.
