So, I've been really talking the dentist up today and practicing looking at her teeth. But I was still scared because I didn't think she had any idea what a dentist was, so me saying "Maggie gets to go to the dentist tomorrow. Dentists are so fun!" wasn't really helping.
And then after lunch we turned on the last few minutes of Sesame Street. And it so happened that the topic on Elmo's World was teeth. And it so happened that they went along with a little boy on his first trip to the dentist. And it so happened that Maggie and I cheered and clapped and talked about how much fun it would be to have the dentist look at our teeth!
Elmo, how did you know we needed that today? If only you could come help us tomorrow. I'm afraid they're gonna have to drug her to get her in the chair... we'll let you know how it goes.
