We survived our first trip to the dentist today. Addelyn did great! She was a little uncertain about the whole deal but handled it all very well. She got to watch cartoons while getting her teeth cleaned, wore sunglasses because of the bright light, and chose bubble gum for her toothpaste. They counted her teeth, cleaned them well, and painted on some flouride. She got a balloon and a packet with a toothbrush, a timer, and a pencil in it. Afterwards, she asked if she gets to go back soon and I said, well- in a year or so (thinking she was excited to go back). She said, "Nooooo! I don't want to go back!" So despite doing well, she may be like her daddy and not love the dentist!
She did ask why she didn't get to bring her "bib" home with her. That little mind was working as always, thinking about playing with babies.
