In the beginning of June I took Lillian to get her first cavity filled. She was a brave girl and didn't really show any sign of nervousness leading up to that day or even that morning. The nerves finally set in and showed as we walked through the waiting room doors and back to the dental chair. I am sure part of it was leaving Claire behind in the waiting room. Lillian and Claire are rarely apart from each other, probably something that we need to work on and have them spend more time away from each other, even if it is just a grocery trip. Anyways, she was very hesitant to sit in the chair by herself. For their dental check ups they have been sitting on our laps so we don't have to deal with that fight, but this time that couldn't happen. I helped her up onto the chair and she was in a trance watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the screen. She didn't say a peep the entire time back there. I am sure it was from being a scared and I don't blame her one bit. She finally leaned back and started to relax after our dentist gave her some laughing gas. She was still in the TMNT trance for the entire procedure. It was quick and she was a champ. Once the procedure was complete and the gas was turned off, she finally started to talk and laugh. She was excited to go out to the waiting room and tell Claire all about the little vacuum that sucked out her cavity bugs.
