Landon's 1st Trip to the Dentist

Landon went to the dentist for the first time today! He was very brave and didn't seem afraid at all. We brought Daddy as backup since we were not sure if someone would end up sitting in the chair with Landon. But he was very interested in everything the dentist had to tell him. I thought he looked adorable in the sunglasses that they gave him to shield him from the bright light. Something interesting we learned from the dentist is that she thinks that you should let the children brush their teeth at first but then you should always go in there after them and really clean them. That wasn't shocking to us but the fact that she said we should do that until they are EIGHT YEARS OLD! REALLY...that is a long time to be brushing your children's teeth every morning and night. I know that I was definitely brushing my teeth on my own a lot younger than that.

Wow! Looks like he did great. Yes, the dentist tells me Kevin still needs help....and I can see that he does (he's 8 now). But it's so much easier to just say, "go brush your teeth"

ugg, my kids have brushed their own teeth since they were about 5 or 6 who had time to go in after them! I am so mad I forgot my camera when graham had his first visit to the dentist a few months ago and I tried getting one with my phone and accidentaly deleted it UGGG
