Today the kids had off from school for teacher meetings. I had all these plans ready: cleaning up around the house a bit, laundry and the kids and I were going to try our hand at making homemade fortune cookies from scratch for tomorrow's parent-teacher conferences. Last week I had found a simple enough looking recipe for them on Pinterest (look here for it) and was really looking forward to trying it.
Then life stepped in.
This morning the four of us were sitting around talking when I noticed that one of my older son's teeth was almost completely pink. After getting closer there seemed to be a chip in the tooth and he then said that he had been eating around that area for a week because it hurt.
So instead of doing fun things with the kids today I got to go to the dentist. It wasn't the end of the world because since he had the day off anyways the kid didn't have to miss school. The dentist was able to take the chip off that tooth fairly easily and since it's a baby tooth we don't have to worry about what it looks like.
But when it was all said and done the last thing I wanted to do was go back home and spend what was left of the day baking fortune cookies. So we stopped in to the local Asian market to buy prepackaged fortune cookies for the teachers tomorrow. I know they will still like them but it would be nice if a day could go the way I want it to sometimes.
