David walking the boys down the hall to see the dentist.
my sweet silly boys
Cruz wanted Ben to go first but the nurse called him back instead. He did not like that. ha He did jump right up into the chair though and took it well.
He laid back, was very still, and did just what the dentist asked. I was proud!

When did my baby get big enough to see a dentist???
All done! All smiles! All clear! No need to return for another six months.
From this direction you can see one of the volcanoes in the background.

I love city views. Do you?
Here are the boys eating a morning snack before we headed back the next day for Cruz to get a filling.
Rice Krispy treats always bring big smiles to my boys faces.
In spite of all the preparation I tried to do with Cruz, the next day did not go quite as well. He was very nervous and pretty much cried the whole time. It was not a screaming and obnoxious cry but a constant nervous cry. The dentist was still able to work on him but instead of fixing both of the spots he only did one. He didn't want the experience to be too traumatic for Cruz so we'll do the rest on our next trips into the Capital. In spite of him crying I was still very proud of him.
So since visiting the dentist what does he do with all of this new dental knowledge he has gained? Well, he puts his scrubs on, sits us down, and pretends to work on our teeth just like the dentist did to him. His favorite part is using the drill to "make our teeth better". He is funny and loves to role play. Who knows, one day we just might have a Dr. Cruz on our hands. I'll be needing a good one to take care of me by the time he's old enough to be one, ha.
