Ben had his first dentist appointment the other day! I was a little worried about how he would do, as lately, he has decided to arch his back, flail, whine, etc. (ah, toddlerhood), when he is not allowed to touch/do whatever he wants. But he did great (because we drugged him).
Okay, maybe we didn't drug him....but seriously, this picture? Hilarious.
The dentist caught a quick glimpse into his mouth as I dangled him upside down so he would open his mouth in a wide grin! I think the appointment was more for us to learn what they would prefer we not do - give him stuff that will stick in his teeth (like raisins - apparently a big no-no) or send him to bed with a bottle (unless there is water in it, which is okay), and to continue to brush 1-2 times a day (as he will allow).
