Shiny Sharp Chompers



Today was our 6 month visit with the dentist. We really enjoy our dentist and have been going to her since we moved here, 8 years ago. She has a picture wall that shows all her “kids” and Butterfly is on there…at 2 and a half years old! She looks SO cute. And the boys on their first visit to her had such long hair!

So I went first. No cavities for me. Yay hooray.

Then Pirate. As long as he had his blankie, he was fine. Maybe.

You want to see...what?!

Kind of. He was a champ though. I got to sit with him the whole time and watch him use the spit sucker like he has been using it for 30 years. He did everything the dentist asked him to. And he got a prize! A tooth keeper, not because he needs one, but because Sister has one.

Then Professor. He was happy to have his turn and was ready to see the dentist and show her his teeth.

See my teeth?

I’m really not sure what happened but he ended up in a huge SCREAMING sobbing fit. All the dentist wanted to do was count his teeth with the sharp tool thingy. Yeah, no. I had to leave because he was just distraught and refusing to look at her.

After she worked some kind of magic and he left without a sticker (he got a tooth keeper too, so don’t worry he did get something!) and he came out to me happy but slimy from snot and spit. Poor kid.

Butterfly did great. No cavities for her either.

Or Juice either. Yay for another 6 months!
