Julia and Ella went to the dentist for the first time, and did great! (None of you need to pay any attention to the fact that Julia is almost 4 and is just now going to the dentist. . .) Julia was extra prepared thanks to a Dora (the Explorah!) book from the library. She got right up there and let them go to town. They got those teeth all cleaned up and even took x-rays! They did find one little cavity, so we'll be heading back in a couple of weeks to get that filled. Once she was done, Julia got to pick a prize out of the treasure chest. I kid you not, Ella looked at the treasure chest, at the dentist chair, back at the chest, and then climbed right up on that chair. She was READY FOR A PRIZE. And she did awesome as well - let the hygienist look in her mouth, practice brushing, clean her teeth, and even floss. And she got her prize.
I have great kids, did you know that?
