The kids went to the dentist for the first time yesterday. Or should I say Garrick did. Aleksia was nervous, then as Garricks turn progressed, she got more scared, and by the time it was her turn she was hiding in the corner with her hand over her mouth. Not even willing to let the dentist look in her mouth to count her teeth! The weird thing is the dentist is in our ward! Sits 2-3 seats behind us in church, his youngest is in her Sunbeams class, and he teaches primary! So she's seen him. Maybe the mask is scarry, I don't know. But Garrick did great! Let her clean his teeth, "It tickled Mom!" he said after. Then as we where getting our coats on, Aleksia says, "Are we going to the dentist now?"
Mom: "Honey, we are at the dentist, we are going home now."
Aleksia: "NO! THIS IS NOT THE DENTIST!"
Chuckling from the office staff and people in the waiting room.
Mom: "Then where are we Aleksia?"
Aleksia: "I don't know, but not the dentist!"
So some lady cleaned Garrick's teeth, then not the dentist came in and looked at them and counted them. Crazy lady!
