Since my "baby girl" is 4 now, we got her in to the dentist for her first cleaning and xrays!
 We talked about it the whole morning and I explained what was going to happen. She was excited to go but made me promise I would hold her hand. :) When we got in the room, she got to put on some fun sunglasses so the bright light wouldn't hurt her eyes.
 I held her hand for a while but when Spidey needed me for a minute, I let go and she sat through it all just fine. I was so proud! She giggled when they put the water in her mouth and suctioned it up. She kept closing her mouth on purpose because she thought it was funny.
 Here she is with super clean teeth and the most beautiful smile.

The best part was the very end when she got a Belle toothbrush, 2 stickers, some lip gloss, and some pink heart sunglasses. Can you say spoiled? She really lucked out.

She had NO cavities, which made me happy since neither Boss or I have great teeth. We were told to start flossing every day, which she loves and SHE reminds me about at the end of every day.

The only issue that came up was the fact that her mouth is crowded. Sarcastically, I'd say I was shocked but I wasn't. My mouth is super crowded. I'm still waiting for the day when we can afford to get me braces and I'll get to look like a 14 year old mother of 2. :)

Then, it was Spidey's turn.
Oh that boy. Since he's only 2, they planned on just looking in his mouth and being done but he did so well that she cleaned his teeth as well! I think because he watched Petey loving it, he decided it had to be fun. Of course, he also loved the sunglasses. Doesn't he just look so small on that big chair? His feet barely go past the back of the chair. He actually cried when it was over because he wanted to keep riding on the chair.

The only problem with Spidey's teeth is that they are apparently more crowded than Petey's. Darn...
I was hoping they wouldn't say that but since his are worse, I was told to start flossing his teeth if he will let me. I'm embarrassed to say that I haven't even tried it yet but it's only been 2 days. I'll try and remember tonight. :)

It's crazy how grown up my kids are. We are scheduled to go back in 6 months and because Spidey did so well at 2 yrs old, they have him scheduled for a regular cleaning and xrays just like his big sis! I just find it funny that when Petey went at the age of 3, she barely let them look in her mouth so they didn't clean her teeth at all. I guess that is a perk of being a younger sibling. The older one tries something out and shows you it isn't scary!

I'm so proud of my big, little kiddos! They are much braver than their mom. I still hate the dentist, even just for a cleaning. Hopefully they don't grow to hate it as much as I do.

And that's how Suze sees it.

What is it with kids teeth now days? All of my kids teeth are too crowded and as Lucas adult ones are coming in they are too big for his mouth.

Glad they did well at the dentist
