Look at this face:
Does that look like the face of a kid that had 4 fillings done with no numbing agents? Well it is. She had FOUR cavities drilled and filled and remained that happy. Guys? My kid is amazing. We watched tons of YouTube videos of kids getting cavities filled and we talked at length about everything that was going to happen, all the sounds, and all the sensations that she would feel from drilling.
She handled it like a boss. Good thing too. We have to go back 3 more times.
I'll let that sink in...
Three. More. Times.
How could I let my kid get to that point? Well, when they say don't let you kid go to sleep with a cup of milk, I guess they mean business. Athena went to bed with a bottle of breastmilk for an embarrassingly long period of time. I never manned up and put an end to it. I let her have her way and now my poor girl is paying the price. Lucky for Zofia, lesson learned.
