This has been my first week of Fall Break!
Fall Break, as you know, means sleeping in late, lounging poolside, and catching up on trashy soap operas.
That's right, I said "NOT" like it's 1993!
In my life Fall Break means teaching intersession math, working on DFAT stuff, going to the dentist, going to the eye doctor, taking Shyla to the dentist, going to my physician, taking Pancake to the vet, and cleaning the house.
So far I have:
- been teaching intersession - it's going well but I am relieved that tomorrow is the last day
- working on DFAT stuff - and feeling rather productive with it
- gone to the dentist (still no cavities and baby teeth still look good!)
- gone to the eye doctor (reading glasses here I come)
- and this afternoon I took Shyla to the dentist
Even though she's only 16 months old, we thought it was a good idea to establish dental care. We are paying for her dental insurance and it is SILLY and WASTEFUL to pay for insurance and not get your 2 free cleanings and exams each year (hint, hint, Stevie).
I called around and got a recommendation to this Pediatric Dental Office:
They were wonderful and I was super impressed! There was even a welcome sign with all the kids names on it:
The whole office is jungle themed. While in the waiting room (although they were ON TIME) we shook hands with some stuffed animals.
And made funny faces in this mirror.
And, of course, drank some juice under the shade of the (unpictured) inside tree.
When we went back we met the doctor who was SUPER nice! She examined Shyla's teeth and mouth, flossed them, and put orange flouride on them.
She said everything looks great and she was glad we started her care at such a young age. Overall it was a good experience for both of us.
If you have kids and you don't have a good pediatric dentist, I highly recommend this one!
Now I am off to continue enjoying the leisures of my fall break.
