Today the kids all went to the dentist, including Z-man who NEVER lets them actually do anything to his teeth. But today was different. The cute little hygienist bribed him with a bouncy ball if she could take an x-ray of his teeth: he TOTALLY complied. Then he climbed right up on the chair, laid down and started watching the movie on the ceiling-mouth open, teeth clenched, but mouth open. What the....? Normally, he is SC-A-REAMING and running around, jumping off chairs, etc, etc. I am apologizing up and down about his behavior and internally cursing this cute little ball of mess. Maybe he is growing out of his temper tantrums-maybe-YEAH RIGHT! Apparently bribing helps, though. I may need to take this technique and use it for future events. Who knew-BRIBERY! AND we learned a new word today: toothbrush is now pronounced as "poopfrush". Z-man is too cute!
ps: absolutely NO cavities! Hooray!!!
