Alligator Mouth

Krista had her dentist appoint yesterday. After seeing the current media storm on dentists taking advantage of young patients for profit, I went back with her during the appointment. I trust our dental office, but these days you have to always be overprotective and she's only 4! They don't have closed rooms in the back, only nooks where the chairs are and it's an open layout. Krista had no problems. She was happy and climbed right up in the chair. She opened her mouth when asked and bit down when asked. She let them polish, brush and x-ray her teeth - an excellent patient, as always. She did have one tiny cavity in one of her tiny teeth, so she will have to go back in a month to get it fixed.

When it came to appointment time, all I could think about was Gabriel. Next year, he would need his appointment scheduled and I know he will be a wiggling handful of a tantrum. There appears to be plenty of fun time ahead for us!
