I am sure all four of them will have this too, I better start saving NOW!!!! Yikes!!
They put some numbing gel on his gums then injected freezing as well. He wore a little mask with nitrous oxide while we did it too. He really didn't need it, but I figured it couldn't hurt. He was not nervous in the least. He told me today that he had "fun" at the dentist..........I know - strange child! The only thing that bothered him was holding the gauze in his mouth for a little while until it stopped bleeding.
He said his lip felt fat afterwards from the freezing. It was hilarious to see him try to have a drink for the first time. I did NOT have the video camera on either. Can you believe it, me not video taping the kids. ;)
He drew a picture of the tooth fairy coming in his room and a picture of him at the dentist and wrote her a note to leave under his pillow. He wrote the note all by himself so I will translate. "Spencer T. I went to the dentist to get to pull my two teeth". We put both his teeth under the pillow too. Remember he lost his two teeth that fell out on their own.
She left him some new toothpaste and a $10 bill for each tooth. ( I know its a bit steep, but he was so good and brave to have them pulled)
His gums were a little sore this morning so the littles ones and I took him some shells and cheese and yogurt and surprised him at school for lunch. He was thrilled and his mouth didn't hurt anymore at all he told me. His teacher said he couldn't wait for journal time this morning so he could draw and picture and write about his teeth. He showed almost everyone his missing teeth.
