This dentist thing ain't half bad










Little Brother, you're up.
No really. It'll be okay...








No. You may not have either of them.
They are MINE.
The End.

Oh P.S. I want to say thank you for your comments on my last post. Because of this bumpy sobriety journey, that kind of post means much to me, and so your words of encouragement, grace, friendship, and love...well, they totally lift me up. Thank you.

The dentist has caused some major anxiety in my household. When my daughter was only three she needed a root canal. Made me feel like mother-of-the-year for allowing that to be needed.

I stood at her side, holding the hand, 7 months pregnant and just about to faint because dentists bother me so much and here he was with his hands inside my BABY's mouth.


These smiles are MUCH better. Ahhhh.

Those smiles are so sweet! Glad it was a good experience because, as we all know, sometimes the dentist isn't so fun. :) They are adorable!

The Hollywood Memoirs said...

Good for them! I wish I was that comfortable at the dentist.

Less Toil Traci said...

We have the same dentist...isn't he great! So calm and caring! Glad the trip went well! Love their smiles.

Corinne said...

I need to get Fynn to the dentist... I'm so afraid of the dentist though that haven't been in forever, and don't even have one to call my own these days... so this was a good reminder.
And how freaking cute are your boys??? You must have been SO proud of them :)

Aging Mommy said...

I have yet to take my three year old daughter to the dentist, mainly because I don't think she will react as your sons have! But I must, so thank you for the reminder.

Tooj said...

The dentist thing isn't half bad if we help out by not spoon feeding them rotting sugar stuff. As tempting as it is to watch kids enjoy juice and kool-aid and candy....I'm such a depriving mom BECAUSE of the fear of dentist anxiety! LOL Your boys look very comfy in that chair.

I love it! My kids were always quite happy at the dentist's office. That said, they inherited their father's saliva Ph and consequently have like NO cavities...Luckyyyyyy

Kazzy said...

TeeHee They are so darn cute. My husband was walking by when I pulled up your post and he said, "Awww" when he saw A.

Kimberly said...

I am in LOVE with that first picture of Asher - the expression on his face! Priceless!

Melanie J said...

It's freaky how much your dentist looks like my dentist. Grant just had his first dental check up too, and it wasn't nearly the disaster I feared. Whew.

Cynthia said...

Asher's glasses get me every time. He looks like a little Ralphie from the movie 'A Christmas Story'.

Thanks for listening to me that night at the CBC. It all came out in such a rush but isn't it amazing that we get to know each other well enough through our blogs that we can have a REAL conversation the FIRST time we actually meet in real life? It was great to meet you, finally, you're even better in person. I hope to repeat that experience again at some point!

Holly said...

The dentist gets ME EVERY time!! I procrastinate as MUCH as possible... My dentist in Riverside, CA was a sadomasochist! Hubby has NO NERVERVE ending, I SWEAR!! LOL!! He just DIDN'T understand!
Your pix/boys are adorable!! Thanks for sharing! ((HUGS))

BaronessBlack said...

Hey! You're first American I know who uses the phrase 'not half'/'ain't half'.
I always had problems in the US because people thought I meant the opposite. If I was asked if I liked something, and I replied 'not half!'
It meant that I enjoyed it a whole lot! But lots of people used to misunderstand me and think I hadn't enjoyed it at all.
So, I'm relieved to hear you use the phrase!
Very cute photos!

Sarah said...

For some reason my sleepy too-early in the morning brain wants to use the phrase "bee's knees" so I'm gonna let it. If it weren't you, Heather, I'd probably squelch that funny, groggy part of me and try to say something smarter sounding. But no. What fun is that?

So...
That last photo? Little man A? It's a gem. And I dare say it's the bee's knees.

(There, see? I told you I wasn't making any sense. And here I am still rambling...ahh....)

~j. said...

Heather, your boys are gorgeous.

suzannah @ so much shouting/laughter said...

oh my gosh, those are great photos! we still haven't braved the dentist with my little one, but we did take a tour and get a tooth brush, so i think it'll be ok:)

Kelly said...

So sweet! We are in the world of orthodontic appliances on one end and brand-new dentist visits on the other. Can't wait to see how my newly-3-yr-old handles it!

Christine said...

Fantastic! Really, LOVE these shots. And those pearly whites on both of them, gleaming!

becca said...

I wish I could look so happy in the dentist chair. Ugh. Causes much anxiety for me! The shots are precious... your boys are precious. So great that you captured these moments!

Jamie said...

Adorable!

My kids have always done well at the dentist, but I think I had enough yucky childhood dental experiences for several children, so they must've made up for me. :)

The mad woman behind the blog said...

I can only pray my Mad fairs the same. And yes, those little guys are DAMN cute!

Lee Vandeman said...

Can't I just borrow them? At least for a trip to the dentist???

:-)
