Aubrie recently went to the dentist & came out with count 'em 4 cavities!
Jade & I were shocked - what the crap - how did that happen? Then, we closely watched her brush her teeth - and we knew. It doesn't help that we have well water & you forget the benefits of city water with fluoride in it for your shiny brights...so now we have fluoride supplements & anti-cavity wash to throw basically down the drain because the kids like to consume as much as possible at any given time.
So anyway, today Everett & I had our turn at the dentist.
Why is it that when you get in a dental chair your kids go wild? I'm leaned all the way back with my mouth open wide & hands in it. I start to see the blinds opening & shutting. Everett was messing with them...of course. I was dying of embarrassment. I wanted to crawl into a hole. I finally tried the silent pinch to make him behave - then I got the ouch Mom why are you pinching me...kind of defeats the silent pinch purpose. The rest of the time he sat between my legs on the dental chair about 3 inches from my face watching her clean my teeth - talk about a visit from h-e-double toothpicks as my mom says!
Ends up I have a cavity - I had 2 this fall. Jeez no wonder where Aubrie gets it - I have rotten teeth. Jade has never nada not ever had a cavity...of course he'd be that perfect darn it.
So when it was finally Everett's turn I went up front to nurse Ollie.
I could hear him the entire time. He.never.shut.up. I kept thinking gosh how are they cleaning his teeth? Well they couldn't. Then, I hear him touching the tooth brush thing & it's going rrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrr and the dentist said please doing touch that and it goes rrrrrrrr again - then Everett says what is that? Again, I was mortified.
So the dentist eventually comes up & tells me that Everett has a place that could become a potential cavity too - fan freaking tastic. So much for a week with out doctor or dentist or eye doctor or ear doctor visits. Next Wednesday I get another cavity filled...boo.
