Taryn had her first trip to the dentist and made it out cavity free! We had been talking about going to the dentist for a long time and I thought we were doing well. But when the hygienist called her name, she started crying. They even took us back to the only room with a door so as to not scare the other children with her crying. That part made me chuckle a bit. Taryn is not a clingy kid. But she would not let go of my hand the entire time. We didn't get x-rays done (maybe next time?) but she did open her mouth and the dentist was able to thoroughly check her teeth- phew! It wasn't all for nothing! Thank heavens for awesome pediatric dentists who know just who they are dealing with!
She got a pink bouncy ball and an Ariel toothbrush. That's why you see that pretty smile above. I'm glad I can rest at ease for now knowing that she is in good shape with her teeth. Hopefully we will be this lucky for a long time :)
