Is This Real life?

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.





All clean!

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."

The picture of the two of you in the chair was so much fun! Seriously, I have never seen anyone enjoy the dentist more than she just did. :)

The picture of you and her is so funny! What a fun memory! I'm glad she ended up getting her teeth cleaned though and maybe she love to go to the dentist now b/c of the candy? LOL

Oh, how cute! Looks like your dentist office does a really good job with kids, how lucky! I love the "all clean" pic, I see a future dentist/hygenist/assistant in her future. I think you had a good outcome with her visit because you did such a great job preping her (with the Dora book) and being supportive of her when she was there. What a great mom you are!

She looked like a model patient. And you just know the dental assistant made a mark on her chart about how much candy you let her eat :D
