William had his first dentist appointment this week. I think I was more nervous about it than he was.
We spent part of the week talking about our teeth, how to care for them properly, healthy foods, etc. We also made a book on teeth. Obviously to top it off he went to the dentist!
Here he is making his teeth book. I don't have a picture of the final product, which is sad, because it turned out pretty neat - it has a pop-up picture of a tooth and all! Abby naps some days and other days not. On the "not days" she refuses to be left out and wants to color right along with William.
He's holding chap stick. Never been to a dentist where they give chap stick out!
He was very brave sitting in the chair, albeit a tad stiff. I tried and tried to get a good picture, but he was unsure of himself and how much he could actually move in the chair that once he was in the chair he didn't move a muscle. The dentist and his hygienist were awesome! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. There were flat paneled TVs in each room so he got to watch cartoons during the cleaning. Funny - the hygienist asked if he liked Sponge Bob and William didn't answer her (a little shy and completely bewildered as to what Sponge Bob was). I told her we don't have a TV so he's not familiar with any cartoons so Sponge Bob would be fine. (Honestly though - could there be a dumber show out there? I think not.) So now, every time he sees a magazine with cartoons in them he always points them out!
Anyway, he got a clean bill of health and a rather nice dinosaur for a prize. (Obviously this dentist does NOT shop at the dollar store!)
