Kate had her much anticipated (well, highly anticipated for the past two days) first visit to the dentist today!
Honestly, I was a little concerned that the actual visit would not match up with her preconceived notion of the fun she was going to enjoy -- but that was not the case. Contrary to what you might have expected, this was -exactly- the kind of fun she'd had in mind! Here, she's donned her glasses and is choosing her new toothbrush.
Explaining the pick and the counting of the teeth -- we really love this pediatric dental practice and their patient, kind way.
I have no idea how Kate knew exactly what to do with this suction device (was she really watching Suki that closely?) but she was a total pro.
Kate was so composed and calm through this whole visit -- she asked questions (like, "what flossing mean?") when she didn't understand something, she did exactly what the hygienist and dentist asked -- I was floored.
We went to the Paper Source and did some window shopping and then doubled back to the dentist's office to pick up a toy left behind, and then it was lunchtime. We went to this organic wood fired pizza place and had some -delicious- pizza.
