Brave Boy!

A couple of days ago we went to the dentist. It was for Caleb's first actual cleaning and x-rays. I was so worried because he really does not like new things and lets just say that the last two "happy" visits did not go well. They put me in a chair first and started on me and then another hygienist came in and asked Caleb if he was ready. He said sure and hopped down and went to the room next door. He took bear out of his bag to sit on his lap with him. They opened the little doors between our rooms so I could see a little but they just put the x-ray cover over him and he was great. I cant believe he let them get in there and clean and polish! He asked tons of questions and did say a few times, "all done now!," even when they were not quite done. Then he got a goody bag and he was so concerned that I wouldn't get one so he kept saying things like, "shes being really good. Looks like she will get a bag." It was pretty darling.

Here is a little fact that we found out at the dentists office too. Caleb has an extra tooth. The dentist says it actually pretty rare to find that and what is ironic is that as a child I was missing a baby tooth and a permanent tooth. I'm interest to find out what his permanent teeth are like but they didn't get x-rays of them yet. I had noticed the tooth because its really crooked but I never noticed that it was extra (give me a break this kid bit your fingers off if you tried to see his teeth when they were coming in!) If you blow the picture up you should be able to see that he has 5 teeth between his canines instead of 4. He now tells me how special he is because he has an extra tooth! I was so proud of him!!!!

On a scary note we found a baby scorpion in our garage. It was dead but still that seriously freaks me out!

That's a great photo of him, I will copy it. I'm so glad you were both so good at the dentist office, and if your really good maybe a little heavenly help will keep the scorpions from carrying off your children!

Good for Caleb! We have had dental challenges with Emily as well. She also went this week and did much better than she has ever done before. It's nice when things get easier.

We had scorpions in our house when we lived in TX. They were alive though. I found one in the girls' bathroom once. Scary.

That is so sweet that he was worried you wouldn't get a goodie bag. What a good son!

I hope you got that goody bag! That's pretty good for a kid Caleb's age to do so well at the dentist - good for him!

He's doing much better than I remember my visits to the dentist.
