Landon's 1st Dentist Appointment

My big boy went to the dentist for the very first time today. He was a little apprehensive at first, but was okay once Mommy laid in the dentist chair and he could sit in my lap. He did great for the hygienist who brushed and flossed his teeth, and painted on some weird fluoride treatment (I appreciated the paint-on kind because apparently if they swallow any of the liquid kind, they usually yak in the car). He didn't mind the spit sucker, but wasn't too fond of the water thing. The dentist counted all 20 teeth and said they looked great. Props to Mommy and Daddy for brushing them like a tooth nazi. I also had the dentist talk to Landon about candy (he's a candyholic like his Daddy), and he explained all about "sugar bugs". I was pretty sure it sank in. Because Landon was a great patient, he received 2 tokens to use in the Treasure Tower (bubble gum machines filled with toy treats like tattoos, parachute men, balls, etc.). Landon walked up to it and said "Mommy, is there candy in there?". Okay, so maybe the sugar bug talk didn't sink in.
