Dentist and chocolate
We had a dentist appointment, all the children and myself. We have a lot of snow here in Luxembourg for the moment so it took some time before everybody had found his/her coat, gloves, hat and snow boots and we had to drive slowly because the roads were very slippery. But we managed to be there in time. We took place in the waiting room and all of a sudden I hear this NOISE. I knew this noise.....it was the noise of a vomiting child, my daughter.....
She vomitted twice, on her clothes, the chair, the floor...everywhere. The dental assistant must have had children of her own, she was really cool and helpful. We had to clean the whole place and I was so grateful that there were no other patients in the room! Do you know the feeling that you wish there was a big hole in the floor and you could just disappear? This was really one of my M.E.M.'s (Most Embarassing Moments) (Sorry, no pictures here).
When we came home, we had to change quickly and put on something really warm. On February 2nd, children in Luxembourg celebrate "Liichtmësdaag". The children make lanterns at school, go from door to door, sing a special song and get candy and chocolate in return from the people in our village . The kids love this day. If only it would be somewhere in July or August. It was snowing and so wet, very cold, but the kids had such a great time. We had 17 children in our group and look what we got. Tons and tons of candy and chocolate (well at least we had clean teeth to start with).
