Alex and Edison love brushing their teeth. Alex loves flossing and Edison doesn't really love it so much. But I came up with an idea to count down from ten (slowly) as I floss their teeth and then make them blastoff at the end by throwing them in the air. It has made a huge difference! We used to be able to floss maybe one of Edison's teeth and now all of his teeth get sparkly clean.
I had an appointment a few days before theirs and I still can't chew on the left side after a cavity was filled. (I have already been back in to have the dentist fix it; still can't chew over there.) I do not want these boys to have terrible teeth like I do. I try to limit their juice and sugar intake. Despite brushing their teeth and flossing every night, I was chastised for not brushing their teeth in the morning. I never have a successful dentist appointment.
The boys think the dentist's office is the greatest place ever.
The hygienists and assistants thought that Declan was a perfect baby. I can't really argue with that. They were congregating in the hallway to coo at him.
Edison thought the chair was a ride.
The hygienist let them choose a toy once they were done. She also said they were the best kids she has ever worked on. Maybe she says that to everyone but it made me very proud of my little guys.
