Tomorrow Luke has to have a tooth pulled. I figured we would for sure have to put him under to do it. Then I discovered it would cost us $500 and insurance will not pay any of it. I decided it was at least worth a shot to try it with just laughing gas first. I also decided to bribe him to try to do it with just laughing gas.
You may think we are crazy, but I figure it is worth trying. You see it will only cost us $100 to do the laughing gas. So I told Luke that I will take him out for ice cream – all he can eat! – AND let him pick out a toy at Target (under $20) if he can do it with only laughing gas. I figure we will come out about $370 ahead if he can do it. I’ll let you know tomorrow!
**Edited to add that it totally worked. $10 for ice cream, $20 for a toy and $370 more in our pockets. yay!
