As ya’ll know I had my wisdom teeth out last Tuesday. It’s been an okay ride. Wasn’t in as much pain as I thought and really I think it went quite well. I did learn some things and I thought I’d share those with you:
*It’s completely possible to be sick of icecream. And yogurt. And applesauce. And mashed potatoes.
*Friends will offer to bring food for your family. Real friends will remember to bring something you can eat.
*Have childcare lined up for several days after. That supermom stuff is impossible with painkillers in your system.
*Eat your favorite foods for several days before. You might as well say goodbye to them for the next couple of weeks.
*I’m entirely way too reliant on straws. I had no idea how often I was using them. Being strawless stinks.
*And lastly, REST. Use this time to catch up on the years of sleep lacking. Even if you’re feeling better, sleep for all it’s worth! As a mom, you won’t get another chance like this in the next decade.
What did you learn from your wisdom teeth removal?
