Reese had his first dentist appointment recently and it was somewhat less than a rousing success. (March 16th status update: "4 y/o dentist appointment FAIL. Can somebody else be his mother today?") Griff had a cleaning scheduled for today and both because I lacked child care and because I hoped seeing their big brother having his teeth cleaned would acclimate R & X to the experience, I brought the little guys along.
Everybody was fascinated by what was going on in Griff's mouth:
Toward the end, during our long, long wait for the dentist to come check G's teeth, everybody including Reese tried out the chair. Everybody received prizes and new toothbrushes, too.
...and then Dr. Adams pulled all of Griff's lower teeth!
JUST KIDDING. It's a set of fake teeth/gums. April fool's!*
*incidentally, Griff totally got me with an April Fool's joke - the classic spider-on-your-shirt that got me in trouble lo these many years ago - when he came out of school. The kid has killer delivery/timing!
