When she got up yesterday morning she was in a great mood. She remembered that we were going to the dentist and told me again that she didn't want to go. I reminded her how brave she was last time she went to the doctor and how nice the doctor was and told her that the dentist would be the same way. From that point on she didn't seem nervous at all. She talked a little bit about some of the parts we had read in the book and kept telling me the whole way there that the dentist would be nice.
I chose a pediatric dentist in an office that only sees children and I'm so glad I did. Every one there was incredibly friendly and they were all so sweet with Emerson. We were called back right away and the whole appointment took less than 20 minutes. I took a few pictures to document the day. They're with my phone so they're not the best, but I still have to share.
She looked like such a big girl getting her x-rays.
After X rays they sent us to a little waiting area. They had video games and even though E didn't really know how to play she was happy just holding the remote.
She was also pretty excited about the little sunglasses they gave her to wear.
Neither of us had anything to be nervous about because I don't think it could have gone any smoother. Let's just hope her next appointment in 6 months goes just as well. She'll be three by then and I'll also have a 5 month old! Eeek!
