Wordless Wednesday: Dental work

This is a couple of weeks ago. Monkey is ready to go to the dentist to get 2 of his upper teeth extracted. He was very excited to be a brave boy! We talked a lot about what would happen and even practiced with the dental hygienist at the previous appointment. She helped Monkey understand everything and I was so happy to have her work with him. She has an adult son with Asperger's! I love people who "get it!"

Feeling a tad loopy from the laughing gas, he shows off his loot from the dentist. He's biting down on gauze to help with the bleeding. The whole procedure took less than 10 minutes. Monkey was awesome! By the way, the sticker says, "Careful! Tooth, Lips, Tongue Asleep!" He really hated the numb feeling and wanted me to take it out of his mouth.

Still feeling a bit weird because of his face being numb, he cuddles with dad for a few minutes to feel better.

The numb feeling is gone and it's time to head to school! He shows off his new grin, minus 2 teeth. Way to go, kiddo!
