What's More Fun Than Dental Work?

Do you know what's more fun than dental work?

Give up?

Answer: Taking a 20 month old that does not want to sit and waste time for one moment (there is WAY too much in life to explore to sit still for more than .025 seconds at a time, y'all) to the dentist for a check-up. Finley started getting teeth at 5 months and grew about 10 overnight (seriously lol!) so the dentist likes to keep an eye on his teeth.

He was not having it!

Luckily, the dentist finally got a passing glance at his chompers and he's good to go for six more months. Woo!

Know what's more fun than taking a 20 month old to the dentist by yourself?

Give up?

Taking a 26 month old and a 14 month old to the dentist by yourself (coming up in six months). Who wants to volunteer to help? lol

I do have to say that our dentist is AWESOME though. If anyone wants a suggestion on a pediatric dentist and lives near me, let me know.

Oh, and know what tops off a fun day at the dentist with my sweet toddler?

Dropping my full sweet tea from Sonic in the parking lot on the way in. Bummer...

Off to the ENT next...

Tuesdays are fun! :-)

Yikes, you're braver than I am. Our pediatric dentist doesn't see kids until they are two for the first check-up unless there is a problem.

Holy Guacamole!! Yeah. I give you a lot of credit. I can't even get her to let ME see her teeth. I haven't even tried a dentist yet. lol. I'm glad you survived it & that he's good for another 6 months. Maybe next appointment will go smoother. Wish I could be there to help.

This is the third time that he's been there but he was a lot calmer the last times. The ENT appointment wasn't much calmer.

So sorry for you, great birth control for me though ;)

We probably should take Kaylee into the dentist. I'm just putting it off.
