When I scheduled CJ’s dentist appointment I figured Neal would either, A – be able to watch Calvin or B – go with me to help; but Neal took an overtime job so I had neither plan available. I had to go with CJ to the dentist and take Calvin with me. If it was going to be anything like last time I was in for trouble… Last appointment I had to sit in the chair with CJ in my lap and hold him, not too much was accomplished. So I was a little nervous how this appointment was going to go.
The appointment was scheduled for 8:00 am. I knew that he’d either still be tired or in a great mood, luckily for me he was in a great mood. When we were on our way to the appointment I told CJ that Mommy really needed him to cooperate and be good for the dentist. He needed to show Calvin the right way to act!! Never did I think this was actually going to work, but it did! CJ got right in the seat and cooperated. I think it also helped that some bigger kids there too all being good. It went wonderfully!
Later when Neal called I could tell he was concerned with how the appointment went and was shocked when I told him how wonderful CJ was! It was truly a great surprise!
Dentist appointment = success!!!!
