I blamed it on moving, and trying to get settled, but really I was dreading taking Tracen to the dentist. He can hardly sit still long enough to put on his shoes, so I was really nervous to how he would do. But when I could tell he had a cavity I had to face my fears.
And ----- He did GREAT! The pediatric office we went to was really good though. They gave him a tour (after another patient was done crying, they didn't want to scare him), and explained everything they were doing before they did it.
He got some x-rays done, and I don't remember the last time he actually stood still like this.
And as I suspected, he had a cavity, and we quickly got it filled. Nothing about the experience was scary or traumatizing and he has even asked when he gets to go back. Woohoo!
