I went to the dentist today. Usually no cause for fanfare, it was special today. I took Katy with me so she could see what the dentist was all about. Last night, I let her know about the planned "field trip," and she was excited. I picked her up from school, and we were off! She was so excited in the waiting room. Our imaginative play was entertaining for the rest of the people who DIDN'T bring a 3 yr old to keep things interesting. She watched my cleaning very carefully, definitely expecting to have her turn in the chair no matter how I tried to convince her that she might not get in on the action this time. I should have known that no one, not even Jennifer the Hygienist, could resist ol' Blue Eyes.

Sinatra? No.


Katy Swan.

It's finally HER turn!

Open wide!

Mr. Slurpee, her favorite part

How smart you are to make her comfortable with the dentist. Some kids HATE it.

PS - - - I personally rarely go to the dentist because my teeth are strong as rocks and hubby, who has mush for teeth, uses up all our dentist moola.

This was a fun milestone. It makes me nervous to wait three years to get her teeth checked out. I wouldn't want to go that long without a dental appointment. My teeth are as strong as limp celery. I just hope she gets her teeth from her dad.

That is such a good idea. So many kids are afraid of the dentist.

She's still so freaking cute! I hope I can see you guys soon!

Oh wow - - -you've done a MAJOR blog facelift!!! I LOVE it.

Keetha Broyles said...

OK - - - I'm GRRRRRRing in frustration over here!!!! My follow list tells me you've made LOTS of new posts, but I don't find them here.

I AM very glad to find "here" today though!!!!

Keetha Broyles said...

OK, I take back the GRRRRRRR.

I looked more closely, and what my follow list gave me as all NEW posts (posted in the last 17 minutes, etc) were ACTUALLY all your previous posts which for some reason blogger thinks you JUST published. Go figure!
