First Trip to the Dentist

Addi has been to her fair share of doctor's appointments already in her short little life.  Most of the time she does great and they can even manage to get a smile out of her.  Today's trip to the dentist, however, was horrible.  It started off great b/c they had a slide in the waiting room.  She had so much fun having it all to herself.  Even though she kept saying "my turn" and she was the only one playing on it - haha.  

Once they called her name she marched in there like a big girl.  The hygienist explained to her what all of her instruments were and let her hold them all.  So far, so good.  UNTIL....we actually needed her to lay down and open her mouth up.  She screamed and cried.  Bless her.  We had to kind of hold her down so she could quickly brush her teeth and look at them.  The dentist said her teeth look great, she has all of them, but they are really close together and I will need to try to floss her teeth.  Um, how in the world am I supposed to floss a 2 year old's teeth??  This should be fun!  At least she loves brushing her teeth {she just refuses to let anyone else do it}  He also told me to start saving for braces.  Joy.

I wanted to get a "first time at the dentist" picture, but this is the best I got b/c she refused to stand by herself.  We go back in May and hopefully she will do better then :)

Things actually got worse when it was time to leave b/c she wanted to slide some more.  I took her out kicking and screaming and it took me a good 10 minutes to get her to sit in her car seat.  Once we started Annie and went through the Jack's drive-thru for "hashrowns", she was good to go!

  1. We use the little princess flossers and Braegan loves them! Try those. I feel for you- our first experience was very similar.
