One Mom, Three Children, One Dentist

Yesterday we went to the Dentist. Luckily for us the "Dentist" is Uncle Andy. I wasn't sure how Cailin and Colten would do,or how brave I was to take 3 small children to a dentist's office while I had my teeth cleaned too. I wish I had taken the camera with us because it was really cute watching my children take turns in the chair. Cailin went first and with her arms stiff at her side she opened her mouth as wide as it could go. She didn't talk, she didn't blink. Then Colten took the chair. He opened his mouth a little bit, had his hands on his chest and kept wiggling. When it was my turn Cailin and Colten were busy showing Kiley ALL the "prizes" they got because the were so brave. (I think they LOVE going to the dentist now. I wonder if Dr. Orton gives every kid that MANY prizes!) I didn't have a good dentist growing up so when I am in the chair I still get a little nervous, but really for no reason because Andy is a good dentist and hasn't made me cry yet! We all passed with no cavities. I think taking three children to the dentist is easier than taking them to Wal-mart!

LOL! I just did this last week. I took all 4 kids. Jacob is 9 and does good. Jackson was in a grumpy mood and kept telling the dentist it was stupid and wouldn't open his mouth. Jocelyn and I go on Monday. Crazy!
