Maddie's First Trip to the Dentist

Maddie's first dentist appointment ever was this morning.  I usually prep her for days ahead of time when we are going to experience something new like this.  Well, I totally spaced it and didn't even talk to her about it until this morning.  Kenzie went to the dentist a couple of weeks ago, but it wasn't for a real check up because she is only 1.

I was skeptical about how much the dentist would actually accomplish because Maddie tends to be scared in new situations.  She completely blew me away yet again and was great.  She let them do the Xrays, clean her teeth with the spinning tooth brush, floss her teeth, examined her teeth and tell her that she must stop sucking her thumb.  The only time she was nervous and close to tears was when they went to move the chair up and lay it down.

She left with a new toothbrush, a rubber ducky and a promise of a trip to the ice cream shop from Mom.  Yep...I took her to get ice cream right after our dentist visit...
