I strongly dislike going to the dentist. So much so that it's been close to three years since I've been. I've taken the children of course, just not me. Frankly I'd rather have a mammogram, or a check "under the hood" or clean the bathroom or listen to a new violinist practice than go to the dentist.
Recently my concern for my oral health began to weigh heavily on my mind so I made appointments for us all. Today was day one of our dental extravaganza and with a sick feeling in my stomach and freshly flossed teeth we headed out.
I actually liked our dentist and his office. That being said my dental neglect was punished by a deep clean :( The hygienist did put numbing topical stuff on my gums first and that worked quite well (why don't they always do that?). At the end of the hour I left with a new toothbrush and a solemn promise to come back in 6 months. I did not get a sticker. But the children did. I did get a scolding, they did not. C'est la vie!
Sierra, Lu and little b all had appointments today too. Four mouths= no cavities!!!
The rest of the gang will go soon.
on a happier note, this evening we finally go to try out the fire pit. It started raining soon after the menfolk finished building it so we've been waiting for the chance. Tonight was it. The wood was a little damp but it lit and we had a fun marshmallow roast!
