A while back our dentist retired.
The practice was bought by a younger guy from somewhere down south and the first time we went to see him we hated it.
He was a really scaremonger, talking to both the hubby and I about the need for us to go to the dental hospital. He had a terrible manner with kids and despite my best attempts to help, within minutes had the little one in tears.
When we walked out we resolved never to go back there again.
So last week we went to a new dentist. We were there early so let the little one have a play in town. At one point she had us in stitches because she hid behind the column and then leapt out and roared at some poor bloke walking by! Unfortunately it was a little unexpected so I didn’t get a photo!
While we waited in the dentist we played “I spy” and I was amazed that the little one could guess our turn and also had her own turn and got the first letter right every time. She was quite clever with her choices too!
So afterwards we decided to have a rare trip to a restaurant as there was one just across the road.
She is getting really really good at colouring in
She moved her chair to be close to Daddy
And they shared a lovely pudding.
It was a rare treat and all in all made for a pretty nice trip to the dentist! We all got the all clear and won’t be going back for another 6 months
