Two weeks ago I went to the dentist for a routine cleaning. I was nothing less than astounded when the hygienist claimed I had 5 cavities. She said, noting my sidekicks (Clay and Miles), "Yep. Kids'll do it to you. They suck all your nutrients. Plus, you tend to be less diligent about tooth brushing when you are chasing them around all day."
Is that true?!
Whether it is or not, I had 5 cavities filled Thursday. I suddenly feel ashamed that I laughed at Alvin's limp cheeks when he had dental work done a year ago. What would you say is the worst torture: the shots, the drilling, or hours of numb, sagging cheeks and tongue?
