In all of the hubbub of the start of school, meeting television and book characters and floods of near-Biblical proportions, I forgot to mention that Grasshopper has crossed another "first" off of his life-list: First Trip to the Dentist.
He did great. He was nervous at first, but the staff did a fabulous job of putting him at ease and by the time he got ready for x-rays, he was having an adventure. Since it's a pediatric practice, they know what they're doing with little ones. Also, the dentist provided a card for the front of the refrigerator with his home phone number on it in case we ever have an after-hours dental emergency. How amazing is that?
I can report that there were no cavities, and my son prefers the Banana Split fluoride foam to the Strawberry Shortcake variety. Oh, and a new Lightning McQueen toothbrush makes even sitting still for x-rays worthwhile.
This is totally not even an *almost* Wordless Wednesday post. Oh well.
