And another shot where you can see the floor better. I really like the big tiles. The color is great, it hides dirt so well!

Bentley loves to dance. But her "dancing" is pretty funny to watch. My favorite move is The Squat. She seems to like it as well. She'll even dance when my phone rings.
I took a hilarious video of her dancing naked the other night at bedtime. But since I refuse to post naked pictures (you never know what pervs are out there) I didn't. Here's one I took tonight dancing to her Fridge Farm.

Here's my gripe. I hate the dentist. (Sorry to all of you dentists, or wife's of dentists, or soon-to-be dentists.) It's really one of my least favorite activities. I think I would rather go to the OB than the dentist. Wait, thinking.... ok, it's a toss up. At least at the OB I don't get shots. But there are no stir-ups involved at the dentist. Hard to say. Even as much as I dislike the dentist, it's still not motivation enough to floss as I should.
In case you were wondering, here's a list of other things I dislike and/or find annoying:
1- Sweeping/cleaning/ mopping floors
2- The fact that women's dry cleaning is twice as much as men's.
3- The running sound the toilet makes when the seal isn't working properly (a recent home problem).
4- Cold weather when I'm ready for spring.
5- Bentley taking off her socks and shoes the minute we get in the car, even if it's only a ten minute car ride.

Sitting on the dinosaur.
Eating lunch after the museum.
She thought the dinosaur toes were pretty interesting. She likes her toes, so it was pretty neat to see some that were as big as she is!
Bentley liked the dinos better when she could look at them behind the protection of glass. She really liked the dinosaur scale. It tells you how much you weight and what dinosaur weighed the same. She's getting so big and weighs 25 lbs now! We had a great day at the museum! We'll have to go back again because she had a really good time. In fact, she was so tired that she fell asleep in her stroller on the way home.

Last night Justin and I were watching a movie after BG went to bed. Justin had bought some Cracker Jack-type popcorn and I was going to town on it. After eating most of the box, I bit down onto a kernel and chipped my tooth. More than anything, it just annoyed me. Now I have to call the dentist, make an appointment, go in, pay money, all for a stupid corn kernel! And I can't stop playing with it with my tongue. The upside is that, for whatever reason, it doesn't hurt. (Good news since my dentist doesn't work Fridays.) Maybe I should have stopped at half the box. :)
So onto the gratitude part. I realized how lucky I am that this is not a catastrophic event. I have dental insurance to cover most of the cost. We have savings to pay any out of pocket expenses. I live in a country where dental services are easy to access. I realized that even though this is an inconvenience and annoying, it's not going to break our budget. We won't have to decide between fixing my tooth and buying food. I have the option and ability to fix it. I feel grateful for that and it helps me to remember all I actually have. What are you grateful for?
