Trip to the Dentist...

 I know you don't typically leave a tip when you go to the dentist but I felt inclined after this is the sight that greeted the dental hygienist this afternoon. I believe her verbatim comment was, "I've never seen so many people in this chair. Ever."  I hope she never has to.  It was the dental adventure I was dreaming it would be (and by dreaming I am referring to a really bad nightmare).  It actually went better than expected due to the fact that the staff transformed into a preschool for Liv and were fortunately not baby haters.   I practiced with Liv for a long time about what we do at the dentist but I had no idea how well she would perform.  The second she sat in the chair she should stared with her mouth gaping as big as she could open it.
It was making everyone laugh because if anyone came near her she would immediately just open her mouth.  She was a champion with her tutti fruity nasty wasty toothpaste cleaner. She wouldn't take off the pink shades they offered as she watched "Brave."
She looked like a science experiment and almost let them finish before she suddenly sat up, grabbed the hygenists hands and said, "All Done."  She wasn't joking. No more tutti fruity happened after that announcement.
I just want to know why they don't have an adult treasure box with gift certificates, jewelry, and treasures for my age bracket. That's the only thing that could have made our dental adventure even better.  Thankfully we have 6 more months before we have to sign up for the adventure once again.  0 cavities for the 3 Seibold women (granted Grace has no teeth but I bet her gums are superior). Not too bad. I think we will celebrate tonight with some oreo milkshakes.

  2. I'm with you. I just got back from the dentist, and I would have appreciated a visit to the treasure box.
