We were due for Matthew's 6-month check up, so we decided to toss in an appointment for Amy and see how she did. Well ... she didn't like it very much. I forgot that Matthew was over 3 the first time we brought him. What a difference 6 months makes. She liked all of the toys and stickers, but wasn't real thrilled when it was time to get up in the big chair and open wide.
Needless to say, we didn't get a cleaning in for her. Just some teeth counting, and a discussion on getting rid of the beloved nuk. The time has come. Our goal is to have it gone by her 3rd Birthday in August. Wish us luck with that.
Matthew was a superstar this morning. He hopped right up in his chair and had his teeth cleaned in no time! Check out his shades. This pediatric dental clinic is awesome. In the second picture, he is showing Amy how to use the water toys. I love that they have these. Rocco and I used to play with these as kids!
At least we got Amy to smile at the end. She was definitely happy that we were LEAVING!
I haven't posted a Matthew conversation in a while, so here is a quick look at our walk back to the car. I was alone with the kids, so I grabbed Matthew's hand, and asked him to grab Amy's:
Matthew: "Hey Mommy!" Me: "What?" Matthew: "This is like a science experiment!" Me: "Really? How so?" Matthew: "Because ... (looking at Amy) ... small ... (looking at himself) ... medium ... (looking at me) ... and large!" Me: "Wow! You are right! That is like a science experiment!"
Note to self: Teach son that women do NOT like to be referred to as large!!
