Today was the day for Ethan's 2 little cavities to get filled.
I was a nervous wreck all day.
I absolutely hate going to the dentist and especially getting those numbing shots.
How would he handle it?
I stayed calm, but I was really freaking out. Not to mention that I could fully see the giant needle she was hiding behind her back. I winced and gave him words about being brave, this was so much easier than his arm!
The dentist took over. She was so great. She explained the whole process to him, showing him each tool (except the needle) and letting him touch it all. She also showed him the x-rays and told him what would happen if she didn't fill it. The whole time she was patient, calm, and upbeat and he finally decided that he was ready.
He gripped my hands so tightly, his little body going up and down frantically as he breathed fast. But he did it. And when the first one was done and she gave him the choice on doing the 2nd one right there, he took a big breath and said, "Let's do it."
After Lucas' swimming lesson we headed out to McD's to celebrate with ice cream. Bravery should be celebrated I think.
Lucas really loved his ice cream. Really loved it.
