We have an amazing dentist, which I’m grateful for because we weren’t able to send the kids to a dentist for years. Poor Evan has had to take the burden of that. Of course, he thinks it’s awesome that he has a silver tooth. But today he had to get another one because the dentist doesn’t like doing more than one at a time. The good news is that Evan looks great and so do the other two boys. Sigh of relief.
Since Evan had to get another filling and cap, they gave him nitrous oxide. “Evan went on a little trip down mem- Actually I don’t know where he went. But he had fun,” said the dentist. I could hear Evan talking, and I smiled.
After the younger boys had their check-ups, the dentist gave the boys special lollipops that were suppose to help fight cavities.
The Dentist: They taste ok.
Me: Just ok?
The Dentist: They taste fine. I like them. But, you know.
Me: They’re different.
The Dentist: Yeah.
Evan: This is the best lollipop I’ve ever had!
The Dentist: (looking surprised) Really?
The Dentist looked at me. I shrugged.
Me: The drugs are still in his system.
The Dentist:(To Evan) I’m glad you liked it. (To me) If you want more, just call the office.
Me: Thank you.
20 minutes later in the car.
Evan: Mommy, this lollipop is gross.
Me: (smiling) But you said it was the best lollipop you’ve ever tasted.
Evan: No, it’s not. It’s kind of gross.
I figured it was the drugs talking.
