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 Tornado E 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 Tornado E looks great and so do the other two boys. Sigh of relief.
Since Tornado E had to get another filling and cap, they gave him nitrous oxide. “Tornado E 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 Tornado E 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.
Tornado E: This is the best lollipop I’ve ever had!
The Dentist: (looking surprised) Really?
Tornado E: Yeah!
The Dentist looked at me. I shrugged.
Me: The drugs are still in his system.
The Dentist:(To Tornado E) 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.
Tornado E: Mommy, this lollipop is gross.
Me: (smiling) But you said it was the best lollipop you’ve ever tasted.
Tornado E: No, it’s not. It’s kind of gross.
I figured it was the drugs talking.
