Motherhood

The Newest Member of the Circle of Trust

I‘ve mentioned before our struggles letting the dentist into the circle of trust.

But, well, 3rd time lucky it seems.  This time,

…we sat in the chair,

…we opened our mouth,

…we looked up, we looked down,

…and, we let the dentist stick his latex covered fingers in our mouth.

I confess that bribery was involved.  A trip to the toy shop to get a train was promised.  But as a parent, you’ve got to use all the tools available to you, and sometimes that means stone cold bribery.

Welcome to the circle of trust Dr. Elephant.

      I know they’ll be a day when he figures out how to use bribery to his advantage but it’s working for me now!
