Dental Adventure

Matilda had her two top cuspids removed today. The baby teeth were overdue to come out and were jamming up the path for all her grown up teeth. Hopefully this will help everything fall in a little nicer for less braces-type intervention later. She was understandably nervous but the dentist did a great job moving things along quickly so she didn't have time to get too worked up.

Her teacher encouraged her to write about her worries today, instead of the regular writing assignment, which I think helped a bunch also. She illustrated her essay with this picture. I can't chose my favorite part of this: her worried expression, the dentist pinching her wrist, the dentist's kooky eyes, or maybe my prominent teeth that are not being threatened. So much awesome.
