Nora's check up at the Dentist

What better day to go to the dentist than the day before valentines....well I guess the day after would probably be best after eating all that candy... :) but for Nora, she didn't care! She was so excited to be getting "her turn" in the chair as she puts it.

Last year while I was pregnant, she went with me for the first time and "watched." and she had a front row seat too I may add. Looking back I don't know how I managed it but I did... I was about 8 months pregnant with twins and had an almost 3 year old sitting on top of me while laying in that chair that made me feel like I was doing a backbend the whole time and I felt the blood rushing to my head. :P well, enough about me - today was Nora's turn!She had been once before last fall with David and they each got their teeth cleaned with Ms. Wendy. And today at story time, she announced that she was making her coloring page for "Miss Wenny" b/c I had already told her that as soon as story time was over we had to leave to go to the dentist. ;)

However, when we got there Daddy was finishing up with Ms. Marcie b/c today "Miss Wenny" was not there - she is sick. I was a little worried about this new lady but in less than two minutes she had warmed up to her and they were buddies.

Here she is just after getting fluoride painted on... she really like the sucker thingy too! ;c)

and for the first time ever, they did an x-ray of her teeth. I was worried about how she would sit still for all of this b/c with me they took and took lots and lots of x-rays... I think each x-ray was of only 2-3 teeth at a time and it hurt so much along my gums to bite on the film thingy.... well for kids they have a special machine that goes in a semi circle behind them and is done in only 18 seconds! How COOL is that! I think I will ask if I can do that next time! LOL
and of course they protected her with the super heavy "Super Power Cape" :) Which she thought was so COOL!!!
and here she is peaking into her goodie bag...

and of course Nora being NORA, she couldn't not accept the toothbrush with piglet on it that was already in the bag... but had to request a different one! A "princess one with Ariel on it" and a blue handle pluah-eeeeaase!" GEEEE-Wiz!!! :P Thankfully after only a little searching in the drawer, Ms. Marcie was able to accommodate the polite request ;)

I was very impressed that she didn't MELT DOWN at first glance of the tooth brush but instead acted like I have been trying so hard to train her! Looks like my baby girl is growing up after all! :)

Love from Texas!!!
