The Dentist : Take 4
It has been 6 months since our LP's successful trip to the dentist. Today it was time to go back for another cleaning and check-up. This time there was no hesitation, LP followed Gwen right down the hall, climbed up into the chair, and opened her mouth wide to show off her teeth. Before getting started with the exam though, she asked Gwen to check Bear's teeth, she was concerned that he had lost his baby tooth. (the little girl we went on the hayride with last week had lost her two front teeth the week before, I didn't even realize that LP had noticed.)
She was great through the initial check and with the mirror in her mouth, but got a little nervous when Gwen pulled out the sharp hook. After grabbing tight to Bear, she decided that she'd be more comfortable if she sat on my lap. So I climbed into the chair with her and she finished the exam and cleaning without anymore concerns. The highlights of the day for LP were filling the water cup to get a drink, her new Diego toothbrush, and choosing a flower from the treasure chest. The highlight for mommy was hearing that her teeth are clean and healthy and it looks like she's getting her mommy's teeth!
