We went to the dentist today. As a kid, I hated going to the dentist; ironically, my kids love it. Their dentist has a slide, a train that choo choo's around the ceiling, a play area, a game station, books and more. My dentist had old magazines...it just doesn't seem fair.
Well, when we got there, something was missing--the slide. In a large train facade playhouse, they usually climb, play, AND slide. The slide is now another section of the playhouse. I asked the receptionist what happened. She explained that too many parents complained about the noise and that it was deemed the slide's fault and it was removed.
I explained to Sassy that the slide was gone and that she needed to enjoy what was left. I guess she interpreted "enjoy what was left" by going around telling everyone loudly that the slide was missing.
Sassy, "HEY! HEY Guy! The slide is missing! SEE!"
Sassy, "HEY! HEY lady! The slide is missing! Sad huh?"
When she had finished her cycle of the room, she began again--to my utter delight. Finally, I dragged her away from the amused and patient people and distracted her with a book. Thankfully, once the book had been read and dissected, Doughie was finished--NO Cavities! HURRAY!
Well, it began again.
Sassy, "Doughie--LOOK! The slide is missing! It has disappeared!"
Doughie, "No! They just boarded over it--see!"
Sassy conspiratorily, "NO! IT HAS DISAPPEARED!"
Doughie, "NO! YOU CAN SEE WHERE IT USED TO BE!"
At this time, I had to go and make the 6 month appointment. At the desk, I could still hear my children arguing which quickly became yelling and laughing? The receptionist said innocently, "It sounds like the slide is back." And I smiled back knowing darn well that she knew it was my kids making the commotion and said, "Yeah...some people's kids!"

Love this pic....I wonder who thought this would be a good idea.
Do your kid's have a cool dentist? I made sure to get a cool dentist for myself. My dentist has TV's mounted on the ceiling and I get the remote all to myself! It almost makes dental work enjoyable....okay, I took that too far. It makes my visits slightly more tolerable. What about you...do you enjoy going to the dentist?
