Sophia and the dentist

****I know I am due more on Christmas and I will do that soon I promise but I had to write about this while it was still fresh on my mind.
Sophia is such a big girl! She had an appointment today to get a cavity filled. It was a small one and on the side. Our dentist has a rule (and please don't tell me how wrong it is) that you are allowed back with you child but if your child is 3 or over and they start crying and screaming, you (the parent) will be asked to leave so the can finish. David and I talked before Olivia had her 4 fillings done in Dec 2006 and we thought it would be better on everyone if she went back alone because we felt like she would do better if we went there than if we (or me) went back and then had to leave. Olivia (3.75 at the time) did amazing and was able to get all 4 done at the same time. Well, we decided that it would be better on Sophia if we did the same thing with her. I talked to her and told her what was going to happen and that she need to be a big girl and if there were no tears she would get a special treat. She was so good that the dentist was speechless when I went back. She said she was wonderful and that I was blessed to have such an amazing girl. I must confess that I agree with her! I should have taken a picture of her with her dentist. I am truly lucky that both my girls like the dentist because I HATED going as a kid.


  1. Wow - great job Sophia! What a feat to have the fillings done by yourself! Our older DD hates the dentist, so our trips are just plain awful.

    And a Happy belated B'Day to Sophia! Hope she is enjoying that beautiful doll house!

    Happy 2008!

  2. What a brave girl you are Sophia! Way to go!!
