Caden’s First Trip to the Dentist

Caden had a dentist appointment on Monday morning.  To be totally honest, I was dreading it.  The kid screams bloody murder for a haircut, so I was not optomistic about his behavior in the dentist’s chair.  So, when Geric volunteered to take him, I jumped on that real fast!  I made him take the camera, but he didn’t get any shots in the chair because, surprise, Caden had a minor meltdown.  (I was so sad to have missed that one.)  But here’s our cavity-free big boy outside the dentist’s office.

He came back in a good mood with all his trinkets and toothbrushes and stickers, so hopefully in six months it won’t be so bad. 🙂

The one thing the dentist did say was that we need to stop using the binky. Did I forget to mention that we gave it back to him awhile ago? We did. We’re weak like that. Someone should give us a time-out!! He wasn’t taking a nap so I just started giving it to him at naptime, but that turned into bedtime too. But the dentist said it’s starting to effect his bite, so today, we’re going to Disneyland and we’re going to buy a Woody the Cowboy with all his binks. I hope this works. 🙂
