>A few days ago I took Bailey to her first dentist appointment. Seriously- where in the world did my little baby girl go?? The dentist already??? Ahhhhh!!!! It goes by way too quickly….
But anyways – I know it was just a dentist trip and might not seem like a big deal, but I had SOOOO much fun taking her there! It was a pediatric practice and everything was geared for children: the walls were colorful and filled with big, bright paintings, there were toys everywhere, the hygienist had fun little kid names for all the instruments, and there were tons of stickers and prizes for the kids when they were done. And I loved it because they really took their time with us. For me they went through this whole booklet about how to take care of Bailey’s teeth (who knew I was suppose to be flossing her at this age??), and then for Bailey they were very nice and patient and explained everything they were doing to her and let her touch the instruments and feel comfortable in the setting.
Bailey was awesome! She even climbed right up into the chair without being told or asked. And she sat perfectly still the whole time they brushed and flossed her teeth. I was so proud of my little girl! Apparently sometimes kids get really squirmy and they have to put them in this straight-jacket thing so they don’t hurt themselves while their teeth are getting cleaned. It was kind of funny though b/c the jacket was all rainbow colored, like that made the fact that the kid was being strapped down a little more bearable- ha ha!
Well here are some pics of our trip to the dentist. And is it crazy that I can’t wait for her next visit in 6 months?? ha ha!
