her teeth are now sparkling, like her shoes
May 15, 2007
Her very first visit to the dentist. Of course I brought my camera along to fully document the event.
Showing off her stellar flossing technique.
Here she faced the challenge of deciding which toothbrush to chose. There were the four Disney princesses, a Power Ranger, and two Toy Story people. She had gone to the appointment saying she wanted a Power Ranger toothbrush. Though she has no idea who the Power Rangers are. Perhaps she thought they were more pink and sparkling, with better fashion sense. Who knows. It was a tough decision. But in the end, the lure of the Little Mermaid was too much for her to ignore.
After she had her teeth cleaned, and my 11 yr old son had his teeth cleaned (which I did not photograph because 11 yr olds are embarrassed enough already), we left to go to the bike store, where my son picked out a mountain bike and bought it with his own money that he had saved. He was so proud of himself and absolutely thrilled with his bike.
While we were waiting for the bike to be assembled, he suddenly had a coughing jag. He has had a cough for a couple weeks, occasionally having spells where he coughs and can’t stop. So since we were in the Big Town, we popped over to the Emergency Room, hoping the doctor there would hear his coughing and have some answers. Or some medicine. Yes, I became one of those people that I always bitch about who use the emergency room instead of going to their regular doctor.
When we checked in the nurse doing triage noticed my camera and asked, “Were you out taking photos when this coughing spell happened?”
“Oh no,” I replied,”We were just at the dentist.”
It wasn’t until a while later that I realized how odd that sounded.
Caution Radiation Area!
He had a chest xray, which came back normal. Had everything listened to. Finally the doctor said he suspects it is allergy related. Told me to give him some Claritin D for a few days. If it doesn’t get better to go see my own doctor. Emphasis on my own doctor.
And they made sure to touch everything in the room. So I am sure we will have some sort of really fun virus coming soon. I can hardly wait.
