the filling

Today was the big day. Lilly had to go get her first (and hopefully ONLY) filling this morning. She was so excited she could hardly stand it (weird, I know). She did great and didn't cry or even whimper until she tasted the "yucky stuff" when they were doing the filling. The shot of novacaine? Piece of cake. The drill? Piece of cake. Yucky taste in your mouth? Tears and screaming. Anyway, the crying was very brief and everything was wonderful again with the presentation of a new battery-powered Cinderella toothbrush. I was very proud of her for being such a big girl. She called everyone today to tell them about her filling and her new toothbrushes. When Dr. Swang called to check on her tonight, she was so excited you would have thought Santa Claus had called. I think she would have talked to him for thirty minutes if I hadn't gotten the phone away from her.

I'm so glad she did well. It's so funny the things that we think will be awful are a piece of cake and vice versa!

Oh my goodness...poor thing. I'm nervous just taking Allie to get her teeth cleaned! She is not good with people looking in her mouth.

Way to go Lilly! She was a bigger girl than I would be during a filling...not a big fan of any doctors. Looks like you are having a fun summer.
