The Dentist

We visited the dentist this week. Cayden has had "happy visits" before (two actually), but has never had a real cleaning. The dentist (and whole office, really) we go to is great with kids, but I don't want to push Cayden and make him afraid. I wasn't sure what was going to happen this visit, but after I got my cleaning Cayden hopped right up into the chair and told the dentist that it was his turn. I thought for sure he would start freaking out once they actually started cleaning and polishing, but he did great! His favorite part was when Mr. Slurpy (the suction tube thing) sucked all the water out of his mouth.

My brave little buddy.

When the dentist came to check our teeth, Cayden decided he wanted to help. They put gloves on his hands and even found a pair of those weird glasses (the ones that look like they have mini binoculars attached to each lens) for him to wear. Then the dentist started checking my teeth and Cayden was right in there with him. Silly boy. I was so glad the dentist and assistants were so good with him. Unfortunately, I was holding Laura in my lap at the time and so I don't have a picture to document his goofiness. You'll just have to imagine a cute little boy wearing over-sized latex gloves and goofy looking dentist glasses. Still cracks me up to think about it.

I am so glad that Cayden doesn't seem to be afraid of the dentist. He talks about going again and seems really excited to go back. I got lucky and dodged a potential bullet on this one. :)
