Today was Nathan's very first trip to the Dentist. I feel bad that he was a little scared because he saw that the last time Mommy came home from the dentist, her mouth was hurting a lot. I tried to tell Nathan that it wouldn't hurt...but it's such a lie. You can't tell someone a trip to the dentist won't hurt....it does!
Nathan did really well. His teeth look good and they were able to do a little bit of cleaning. It did hurt him a bit as they tried to clean the back of his lower front teeth...and he was so brave but did start to cry just a little. They cut the visit short right there to try and make sure his first visit was a positive one. He got a new red toothbrush that he just loves....a green ring that I call his "Green Lantern Ring", a cool dentist mask, and a trip to the candy store.
