Today, Mark and I had dentist appointments. We took the kids with us, of course. Jonathan hadn't seen the dentist yet, but we recently added him to the dental insurance, so I was going to make him an appointment for next week sometime. But when the hygienest and I were talking about it, she told me the doctor could check his teeth today, and then he'd have his first cleaning in six months when Mark and I returned.
So, officially, Jonathan had his first dentist appointment today! He was fairly eager to get up in the chair, much to our surprise. But we were all in the room together, and he watched Dr. LaParle check my teeth, and then the doctor suggested he climb up on me, and just lay on my chest while he looked at Jonathan's mouth. Jonathan climbed right up and did great!! He actually has an extra tooth up front, but the doc wasn't too concerned - he said IF it was permanent, we could just leave it alone unless it gave him trouble. Said it was a genetic problem - must be from Mark's side of the family ;-)
Oh, and yeah, me and Mark were clean - no problems this time!! We left the dentist, went out to lunch at the Baltimore Street Grill and then hit the downtown flower show that's running all weekend. We're starting to plan our gardens for the summer - flowers and veggies, so we were looking for ideas.
