First Trip to the Dentist

Bennet has been asking to go to the dentist for months. I am finally earning a gold star since I got around to scheduling her first appointment. Today was the day. When I went into her room today she rolled over and said, "Mom. I'm going to the dentist TODAY" with a big grin on her sleepy little face. I am happy to report that AFTER the appointment she is still excited about the dentist. She told me her teeth are dirty again so she needs to go to the dentist again tomorrow. That kid.

Bennet requested a self portrait while we were waiting.
She was so excited. While we were driving there she gave herself a little hug and said, "Oh I'm so excited!!" When the hygenist asked if I flossed her teeth I responded honestly and said, "No." to which Bennet replied "Grandma MaryElla does though mama. She flosses my teeth" Lost 1/2 of that gold star but am thankful that my mom is looking out for Bennet's gums. :)
Besides the toys at the end I think she was most impressed with the water and sucky hose thing. She wanted to do that over and over.
Because I know my mom will ask. She has wonderfully healthy teeth. A little crowding on the bottom but we'll worry about that when she's 6
