Joshua has his first dentist appointment tomorrow morning and to say he’s nervous about it is an understatement. We’ve not made a big deal about going to the dentist and, in fact, a dentist visited his daycare class a few weeks ago (he’s the father of one Connor’s classmates). Joshua was very excited and brought home a new toothbrush and some dental floss. He’s great at brushing his teeth and does so without complaint morning and night. So why the trepidation? Fear of the unknown, of course. He’s never been to the dentist and I think he assumes it’s like the doctor. And the last time he was at the doctor, he got shots.
So tonight as I was putting him to bed, he said to me “Mommy, I have a secret to tell you.” I leaned over so he could whisper in my ear and here’s what he said, “I’m not going to the dentist tomorrow”, followed by a giggle. We’ll see how this goes.
The Daily Krier is running commentary on what's happening in my life on a regular basis. I write about things that interest me -- my family, my hobbies, my career in marketing. The blog was born from my interest in writing, my need to become more involved in all things related to social media, and my desire to start on my personal brand. The blog title is a play on my last name. It's technically pronounced "kreer" but everyone pronounces it as "cry-er". The mis-pronounciation lends itself extremely well to the title, don't you think?
