Good news! I took Luke to the dentist for the first time ever and I passed! I'm not a bad parent who is destroying my child's teeth! Yipee!!
Am I the only one who feels like my child's first dental exam is a reflection of my parenting skills? I figured this would be a good indication of whether or not I let him eat too much sugar, or use his pacifier or sippy cups for too long. Somehow, despite doing all those things, he got an A+. The dentist even said he had "nice spacing." Oh and get this, Luke gagged just like I do at the dentist! I was so proud.
Seriously though, why can't the dentist for big people offer video games and a treasure box? Not fair. I loved how the dental hygienist threw a Nintendo DS into his hands the instant she walked away. The only real problem was Charlie. He was literally trying to climb onto Luke's lap during the entire experience. Next time, I will be sure to bring a doll to entertain Charlie while Luke is getting his teeth cleaned.
