Little and Bubba had dentist appointments on Saturday morning at 8AM. I LOVE our dentist. They have all had special training with special needs kids (although they do see kids without special needs) and run a tight ship. There were three kids with Downs Syndrome in the waiting room with my malformed brain child and potentially autistic toddler. Fun times.
Once a child turns three the parents must stay in the waiting room and the kids go back by themselves. SUCH a great idea on SO many levels. Still, it is a bit tough watching someone so small walking through the big double doors held open by a hygienist in scrubs. That feeling passed quickly this weekend and I pulled out my sudoku book and sat back to enjoy.
15 minutes later they called me back – they were done! Dr. Dan had explained to both children that they had to stop sucking their thumbs and explained to me that I HAD to help them brush their gum line better. Other than that – great reports! Little can’t wait to go back. Bubba didn’t want to leave the video games (he knows nothing about video games but was mesmerized – as the picture shows – by the moving objects and appearing letters. Yes, he just watched the setup and “press start” screens).
If you live in our area and need a dentist, I would be glad to give you their names! Top Notch!
