Avery Visits the Dentist!

It's recommended that kids have their first dental visit by their first birthday.

Since Avery is turning 4 in a couple of months, I figured it was about time to follow up on that recommendation.

Yeah, I know. Parent of the year right here. It's okay. Please don't call CPS.

The waiting room was sweet! And Avery got to try out her first video game, a Sonic the Hedgehog racing game. Landon was content to pretend he was playing, too.

She got to wear some rockin' shades to keep the light from being too bright in her eyes. And the hygienists all wore Hello Kitty scrubs, which basically made her day.

Landon was my cheering buddy. He was fascinated by what they were doing to his big sister's teeth. I didn't have the heart to break it to him that, based on my track record, it wouldn't be his turn for another two years.

This girl was a rock star. Seriously, she followed directions, answered questions, sat so still, never cried, and was generally awesome. I was so proud. And then the hygienist found a popcorn kernel in her teeth (from yesterday) and I was brought back to the real world where preschooler dental visits are actually a referendum on the parent.

End result: ZERO CAVITIES, two happy kids, and one relieved mom.

Did you go to Dr. Shelly? My SIL works there and the office looks familiar. It was a good report, so that's all that matters :)
