The kids were due for a cleaning a few months ago, but with all the doctors I have been seeing....their appointments got cancelled. (Bad mom, bad mom, I know..) My kids actually LOVE the Dentist and have been reminding me for a few weeks that I needed to get them in for an appointment. So today was the day. And since Hadley is almost three (the age my doctor recommends taking them for their first clean) they went ahead and let her join in on the appointment also. They said the kids needed dental X-rays. And since that is a suspected culprit of thyroid cancer and with all I have been through, you can imagine I was a bit skeptical. So I asked why they needed them. And their reasoning seemed to make sense- to see cavities between the teeth. So I then asked for a thyroid guard...well guess what..they didn't have one. Hesitantly I agreed and I personally fit the apron on them. As you can see I made sure they went all the way up to their chin.
They then cleaned their teeth. G and E are old hats but I was shocked at how well Hadley did. She ran up when they called her, jumped on the table to lay down and then opened her mouth up extra wide without them even asking. She looked so cute. And suddenly so big up there on the table. My baby is almost three...wahhhhh.... When she was done she jumped off and asked, "Do I get a lollipop?" The lady laughed....not at the Dentist!
I am proud to say they all made the Cavity Free club!!! I was a tad bit surprised given I have found a new addiction.... Gigi's Cupcakes.
We had to celebrate no cavities with cupcakes!!! I know....I know....
But really, when they have banana cream pie on the menu....who can resist?!?
