This week, G-Bear and E-Bear went to the dentist for the first time!
I know, I know, it is rather shameful that two doctors would take so long to get their eldest children to the dentist. Fortunately, both kids came away with clean bills of oral health. Aside from being encouraged to floss more (and really, who doesn't need to floss more :), both E-Bear and G-Bear got lots of compliments on their teeth. Thank you, Lord!
E-Bear really liked "Mr. Thirsty," the tube that the hygienist used to remove the water from his mouth.
G-Bear liked seeing her teeth on real x-ray films. She hasn't lost any teeth yet, but we're thinking that by springtime she might have a loose tooth or two.
All in all, it was a very successful visit. Both G-Bear and E-Bear said as we walked out of the office,
"Mom, that was fun! We love the dentist! Can we come back tomorrow?"
I told them we'll be back in six months. :)
