My children recently had their semi-annual plaque scraping and professional tooth polishing appointment. Even scheduled early in the day, we spend most of our morning there. Three kids, three cleanings, one oral hygienist...Yeah. It takes a long-ass time.
We came prepared, having brought a backpack filled with crayons, coloring books and reading materials, but it was the Mancala board that got the most use:

By the time the last child was released with healthy teeth and gums, we were nearly starving. I promised to feed the heathen spawn, so we headed to McDonald's. (Where else can I poison my family for under twenty dollars?) On the way there, the girls decided that British accents were just what our boring old car ride needed. The next twenty minutes on the interstate were very entertaining. Did you know that anything and everything is not just funny in a horribly exaggerated accent, but freaking hilarious?
