I’m a little late for this one but I’m linking up with Katie at Mummy Daddy Me for the Ordinary Moments again!
Today (Monday), Arthur had his monthly weight check. The nurse asked me if we had seen the dentist yet. I explained that I had asked about this last month and the lady had told me it wasn’t until 9 months…..
“Who was she? Who told you that?”
(I’m not dropping any one in it!!! No one wants an angry Seychellois woman on there back, believe me!)
Anyway, she tells me I must go today. I had also been told previously that the dentist was at the hospital (on the other side of the island). I thought i’d check to be sure.
“I’ll show you.”
(Cue me mentally preparing myself to take directions to some obscure random place)
Turns out it was in the same building, there is a brand shiny new dentist in the health centre. All the equipment is brand new I was very impressed. The lady in there tells me that Arthur should have indeed been at 6 months but not to worry. She tells me that Arthur will come for his next check at 1year and then every 6 months from then on. The checks at the moment are more to get him used to going to the dentist so he isn’t afraid, I thought that was really sweet. I had to lay down on the dentist chair and have Arthur laid on top of me. The dentist looks at his teeth with the little mirror thing and said they looked nice and strong, asked how I was cleaning them etc.
She tells me that the gap in his two front teeth while not super common its almost certainly nothing to worry about but they will monitor to see how it closes.
Arthur was good as gold, I was a little concerned he might bite the dentist since he likes to chew on anything but he laid there fascinated by the light above him!!
A rather ordinary moment but a first and one that made me proud of my good little boy and his shiny strong teeth!
Ummm, Happy Monday…… 🙂
