BELLA'S FIRST DENTIST APPT!!!!

today the kiddos had a dentist appointment and it was lil bella-boo's first!!! of course she had no idea what this was all about and i was only hoping that she would take it better then i did/do (i'll have to get the picture from my mom of my first dentist appt...you can see the tears in my eyes. it never did get better, i still break out into a sweat when i have to go. this is prolly due to having a couple of oral surgeries, 6 teeth pulled at once, braces for four years, a shitty orthodontist, and i still have crooked teeth...oh well, enough about me).

so the kiddos get called back. i had moment of brief panic b/c they were called to go back by themselves. i explained to the nurse that i wanted to take pictures of bella and she said that was fine, but she was going to tend to mikey first and wanted bella to see how it worked. when they were done, they would call me back. i really kinda like that this dentist's office has the policy that the kids go by themselves. the kiddos are able to relax, and i am able to have a free minute to look at the magazines (note: we had to wait for about 30 minutes and the kiddos were really becoming restless, so magazines to myself was a godsend).

so i finally get called back and i'm told that both the kids are cavity free (hooray!) and bella did fine with her check up. now bella's first appt. was supposed to be a check up only, but this great dentist said that since he knew that we lived pretty far out, he would go ahead and give her a cleaning. plus, he said, this would keep the kids appts at the same time (okay, have i mentioned that i luv this guy yet? maybe if i woulda had a dentist like him when i was growing up, i still wouldn't break a sweat and hold on to the chair for dear life like i do).

so they gave bella's teeth a good scrubbing and they were sent to get a prize.

i'm so proud of bella. she was such a good lil girl. she did what she was told (say ahhhhh!) and didn't break out in to tears.

that's my girl!!

Great idea to take pics! And that is wonderful that she did so well! My hubby is a pediatric dentist. In fact, I just got braces off, and he took Xrays, and I have 3 whopper cavities. So I am going in this afternoon to the pedo clinic and I am TERRIFIED! I hate it. He says I am way worse than the children are!
