Dentist and other random things...

This morning Red and I had dentist appointments. I called his teacher to see if he could switch days for school this week since he was missing for the dentist and not being sick, she said yes. We ran a few errands before we had our appointments. I brought Peanut's stroller in thinking that is where she would sit during my cleaning. Well the poor girl obviously has been traumatized from seeing me in the ER with the Kidney stone that she freaked out when the lady put the bib on me. I took her out of the stroller and put her on my lap. Red sat somewhat nicely in a little chair in the room. I love having the kids with when I get my teeth cleaned because then hygienist doesn't ask me questions that I can't answer because my mouth is wide open with their hands inside of it. The kids ask a bunch of questions and keep the person talking to them, it is wonderful! He kept asking when it was his turn in the chair, too funny. Peanut was pushing on my stomach the whole time so it is a bit sore now from flexing so much. She also watched very closely to how my teeth were being cleaned, so wish I could of taken a picture of her curiosity. Just a little about me and the dentist, I'm a big baby, I like to hold the tool that sucks all your saliva while they polish my teeth. Peanut was cracking me up she kept trying to put it in her mouth when it wasn't in mine. I think she wanted to see how it felt or what it did. I did let her try it once. And Red followed his mama and asked to hold it when they polished his teeth too. Oops, I might have just started a bad habit for him. After I get the older two from school they go and get their teeth cleaned so far we have no cavities and I am hoping that it stays that way.

For the random things. I really need to video these little people more often, actually I should take more pictures, I just forget. The other night we were watching Kit Kittredge An American Girl movie and Red was on the floor sitting. Peanut came over to him and tackled him to the ground pulled his shirt up and blew a raspberry on his belly. It was the funniest thing. Then she actually lifted her shirt for him to take a turn. This went on for about 10 minutes!!! The other thing I want so badly to get on video is the older two playing Lego Star Wars on the Wii, they are hilarious.

OK, Lego Star Wars...I got to get one of those Wii's!
I also keep debating on a video camera...would I use it?

Wow. I would be terrified of putting Selah on my lap during a dental appointment! You are one brave mama!
That's awesome that you have no cavities though! Hope that trend continues throughout the day. My hubby is at the dentist right now getting a root canal. :(

I have never taken my kiddos to the dentist with me. I might try it if it means the hygenist will to talk to them and not me! I mean how am I supposed to carry on a conversation with someone else's hands in my mouth!?

See, that is why I love kids so much. They have a way of brightening any day and any situation. I love it!

Kristin said...

Yeah, for no cavities! I don't think I'd even attempt getting my teeth cleaned with lil' ones with me! Glad it worked for you!:)

No cavities... that is just amazing!! My husband was that way, unfortunately my genes haven't been that kind to me.

Hi- I came over from Nikki's blog. Your kids were so well behaved! I tried taking my kids with me to my Dental appointment and it was a disaster. My son was only three months old, and was not fond of sitting in his car seat. And my daughter who was only 4 decided to use the hallway as her own personal race track. Needless to say, the hubby watches them while I get my cleanings now.
