The Dentist

Today was our first time visiting the dentist. Mommy thought it was a good idea to have us all go there together so we could "get it over with" (her words not mine!). She told us before we left that we were going to see the dentist and that she'd ask us to open our mouth and say "ahhhh". We, of course practiced before we left and laughed about it. Well, that's only partially true. Jordan didn't open his mouth and really had no interest at all in the subject. Jack & I thought it was going to be a good time. Mommy even asked us were our teeth were and Jack quickly showed us. Jack also knew that they were going to want to count his teeth, so he kept sticking his finger in mommy's mouth and counting her's for her. I may see a dental degree in his future.

Mommy bribed g'ma and Auntie Dawn to go with us to the dentist because she wasn't sure how she'd keep track of all three of us alone. At the office, we all were excited to go sit at their kids' table and color while we waited. I was called in first, I'm assuming its because they wanted "ladies first". I went in thinking it was going to be all fun and games until the actual dentist came in to see me. Then I freaked out. I tried to slug her while she attempted to look in at my teeth. Her assistant told g'ma that I was going a great job because if I scream, she can look at my teeth better. After checking each of us out individually we were each taken to pick out a prize. Oh and by the way-I wasn't the only screamer- ask Jack about how he handled it. Let's just say daddy could hear him at work and he was 30 miles away

Overall, the trip to the dentist wasn't completely awful. They told us our teeth looked good and we had no cavities or plaque build up. We even got a little bag full of goodies for tooth brushing time. I, of course was given a princess theme bag while my stinky brothers got Toy Story ones. I plan to use my new toothbrush today and taste the toothpaste they gave us, too.
