gotta love the dentist!

It's time for the latest Sketchy Thursdays sketch! And this one is from the amazing Heidi! Not only do I get a week off when she makes the sketch (nice!), but I also get to play along just like the rest of you! Sometimes when I make a sketch I may already have an idea in mind. When Heidi makes one, I get to start from scratch like everyone else! It's a great challenge for me!

This page is about Nate's first trip to the dentist. I prepared him for nearly a month about going. I told him he would get to wear his Spider Man sunglasses inside (to help block the bright light they use), he'd get a prize (they pick from a treasure box) and he'd get a new toothbrush (he even got to choose which one he wanted).

It ended up being a great experience. No cavities (I didn't expect any... I'm pretty crazy about teeth), and he was so polite and well-behaved. It was fabulous!

The best part (and the journaling that was put on this page), Nate was asked what he'd had for breakfast and he said, "Marshmallows." OMG! A mother's worst nightmare! I quickly corrected him and told her he'd had Lucky Charms.

The dentists laughed and asked him if he also ate the other pieces in the cereal and he said yes. Whew! Close call!! It was funny, but could you imagine if he did have cavities?!?! Could of blamed Mom for giving him nothing but marshmallows!! :)

Thanks for stopping by today to see my Sketchy Thursdays page! Don't miss out on Heidi sketch, and take a peek at what the rest of the DT made. We'd love to have you play along!! There is a wonderful prize from Kristina at Your Memories Here up for grabs!
