Dentist!

As you may have guessed from the mystery title... we went to the dentist on Tuesday.  Lolly loved it.  She is VERY into doctors, vets, and dentists, and was super keen to sit in the chair, wear special gear, and have some glove-handed stranger poke her teeth with a sharp implement.  Seriously, she really did love it, this is not sarcasm.  Crazy, hey.

In the groovy chair.
Wearing the special glasses and bib thingo.
She has some decay in a "typical breastfeeding pattern" that we have to keep an eye on, brush a bit more, and come back in 6 months.  Apparently it's not too bad, and shouldn't affect her adult teeth.  I'm pretty sure she'll be up for the follow-up visit, as she spent most of Tuesday afternoon "dentist-ing" her toys.

She's funny that way.

ETA: on seeing these shots she says, "oh Mummy! We can go to the dentist again on Sunday!"

Oddball.

My boys have always loved the dentist, too. Go figure.

Nice to know she's not alone in her oddball love of dentistry... :)

Looking groovy in the groovy chair, ha ha! Elizabeth, it seems like kids are more used to the idea of the dentist being fun. Dentistry for kids has become more kid-friendly, which does help them be more at ease during a dental procedure.

Oh, Lolly has indeed enjoyed his visit to the dentist. She looks cool with that bib and those sunglasses! Elizabeth, what have you done to her that made her love the dentist? Haha! If every kid were like her, dentistry would be a profession of millionaires. LOL!

Lolly looks so adorable in the photos, and she seems very excited. Most children would freak out when they have dental appointments, but Lolly is definitely not one of them. =)
