The kids went to the dentist, and I have to say that I am just so pleased that my kids like the dentist.
I have a real phobia, but the kids all look forward to it and do so well.
Josh actually had to have a cavity filled and was a little nervous. He has a major gag reflex and we have to worry about him throwing up on the dentist. It hasn't happened yet...but, I am sure it's just a matter of time. (BTW, Josh also went to the orthodontist to be fitted for a permanent retainer. They had to do molds...and man...that was close. He almost had to use the bucket they gave him.)
They had to give him a little laughing gas to keep him calm during the procedure. They said he would be a little loopy...but really, who could tell the difference?
Anyway...now that I have done all this bragging about how much my kids like the dentist...you just have to know it doesn't end well.
This was Katie's 2nd visit to the dentist and I have to say it went far worse than the first visit, which I hardly thought was possible!
She would not even sit in the chair! She got all crazy, foaming at the mouth, screaming bloody murder when they even tried to brush her teeth. We gave up on that and just asked the dentist to look at her teeth in lieu of an actual cleaning.
So...the dentist gets her laying down and tries to count her teeth and check them for any obvious problems. Simple enough, right?
And wouldn't you know...in the middle of all the screaming and teeth checking Katie clamped down on the dentist's finger and would not let go.
It was awful.
I think we might skip our next visit.
