Bubby's 1st Trip to the Dentist

Here he is with his trusty old bear, Corduroy. For some strange reason Bubby was terrified about going to the dentist. It was very odd, as we've only had great experiences. He has accompanied us to all of the big kiddos appointments, so it wasn't some big unknown. In fact, Princess and The General love going to the dentist. They get excited about the visit to the treasure chest, the new toothbrush with the cute little tube of toothpaste. . .and if it is a really good dentist, they even have FLOSS!

In preparation we read Little Bill's Visit to the Dentist, which was quite helpful. He liked the part in the story when Little Bill helps a little girl who is scared by pretending to be a bear dentist. So we packed up Corduroy and headed out for Dr. Nelson's office. (Yes, I am giving him advertising. He is the greatest dentist we've ever had. With all of our moving we have seen quite a few.) At the office the dental assistants were fabulous, and as you can see by the photo to the right, Bubby was a fantastic patient. It was another no cavity visit, YIPPEE! I am hoping they have inherited their father's great teeth, so far so good.


  1. Hey I love the blog make over, very YOU!
    Grace was looking over my shoulder when I popped in on you. She saw there was a new post and whipped-seriously, she had her lap top and was in the recliner with it in 30 second flat. I looked up and said Hey Bubby goes to the dentist! She said I know I'm on my way there! She likes your blog. She critiques mine.

  2. Tell her to leave me a note, and let me know she stopped by. Generally you are the only one who comments, so I don't know if anyone else is even reading.

  4. Albert's comment was deleted because it was spam. While I do love to hear what people think about my blog, I don't care to advertise things that I know nothing about or might find offensive. Please don't post your spam on my family blog. Thank you.

  5. I can see Elijah there a year from now. Only, he won't be holding Corduroy. No, it will be the pink pig called Piglet... or in Elijah's not quite so perfect pronunciation: "Dick". Yep, it's wonderful
