Alright people, we've all see this video on YouTube before, right?
So when I realized Alexa was about to turn 3 and it was time for her first Dentist visit, my irrational fears kicked in. What if they medicate my baby and she doesn't think she is in real life anymore? Or on the way home she tries climbing out of her seat screaming?
Ok, really that just shows you how crazy I am right there. Obviously they wouldn't do that to a 3 year old, besides she only has her baby teeth and they are straight as can be. And honestly I didn't really think that would happen but I was a little worried about how it would go. So we have spent the last month of our lives talking about how cool our Dentist (forgot her name) is and reading Dora Goes To The Dentist. Because what Dora does, we do.
Everything is all fine and dandy until we are on the way there and all the sudden someone doesn't want to go anymore. Oh and the fact that we were going there straight from her school Halloween party that was complete with loads of sugary treats. What was I thinking?
So, we get there and after a few minutes of "being shy" I finally talked her into sitting on my lap and then we could lay in the chair together. After all was said and done she actually did pretty well, only a couple of times did she say nope to opening her mouth...can't blame her, that polish stuff is gross. But she let them do everything they needed to do and even got (us both) a free up and down ride on the chair....twice.
Another funny little story...the assistant that was cleaning her teeth said a few different times that if she opened up really wide then she would get a treat when she was done. Every time she said that Alexa would yell "CANDY?" I was like, "Seriously we don't give her candy very much at all, I think she's just a little sugared up from the 3 cupcakes she just had."
