Trip to the dentist. Today our Little Adventurer headed out early with Dadda to see Doctor Elephant (in Peppa Pig terms), also known as the dentist. This was his second visit to see him and after Dadda’s teeth were given a little polish (Dadda is blessed with perfect teeth) it was our boy’s turn.
Handy Manny traveled along with Jensen for this visit and both of them impressed the dentist with their pearly white snappers. Dadda then got out the camera ready to take a quick photo for me, and….
This photo? Suggested by our dentist. Usually when we want to take photos like this, we pull out the camera, make some embarrassing comment about how we photograph every moment of our boys’ lives, then point and click as fast as we can, smiling shamefully as we go.
Our dentist was as keen as mustard this time! I think maybe he remembered that Gav took photos last time. He told Gav to wait whilst he lowered the chair, told Jensen to scoot down a little and shone the light into Jensen’s mouth. What a dentist. You can’t really ask for more than that. If we gave out stickers as he does (Jensen got two ~ Tigger and Blue’s Clues ~ one for Manny also), we’d hand him a big shiny holographic one with a T-Rex on it, sporting the biggest sharpest incisors you’ve ever seen.
I figured that he must see people every day who dread coming to the dentist (like Momma) or who are miserably sat in pain, waiting for more pain so that they can feel better again, and yet here we are, a family who celebrate their visits!
I’m looking forward to seeing what he suggests next time 😉
Well done, Jensen Indiana! We are so proud of you for caring for your teeth!
