Mr. Thirsty

As a mother, there are certain things that are difficult for me to remember to do.
Like cut fingernails and toenails on a regular basis. Which results in my looking at vampire like toenails   I don't really know what vampire toenails look like, but I picture them long and black and gasping in horror. 
We MUST cut them now!
Or signing a daily calendar from school or reading the nightly reading book or scheduling regular medical and dental check-ups.

Okay, now I sound like a horrible mother. Please know I do feed them and hug them and talk to them and jump on the trampoline and dance with them in my kitchen. 

So, I love it when someone helps me remember these vital things. 
Like our local dental office. 
They WILL NOT let me forget to bring my children in for a check up.
And now that we have awesome Fire Fighter provided dental insurance, it makes me feel like such a good mom when I schedule an appointment AND remember to go.

Yesterday, Little Bear had his first dental appointment. 
They called it a "Happy Visit."
I had just been to the dentist the day before for a cleaning and it was not so happy. 
Next time, I think I'll schedule a "Happy Visit" for myself!

It was really so cute. 
He listened to everything she said, fascinated by the polishing tool and the sunglasses to make him more comfortable with the bright light.

Doesn't he look so big? I want to say its the angle, but I'm afraid I might be wrong. 
By far, his favorite thing was Mr. Thirsty!
The tool that sprays water in your mouth and then sucks it out. 
He held on to Mr. Thirsty, sucking the spit from his mouth until it was time to go. 

His visit really was "Happy!"
The ladies all gave him high fives, he picked bubbles from the surprise drawer and we played in the grass in front of the office, chasing bubbles. 
It was adorable. 

Doesn't that just sound like every dentist visit you've ever had?
