There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

the dentist

my son went to his first dentists appointment today. I was prepared for the worst. this kid was a star!

He was polite and positively responsive the whole time. And didn't freak out when she scraped his teeth, put the suction tube in his mouth, or made him bite down on those awful negative plates for x-rays. He is going to go far if he is going to be that open to new experiences and accept them.

I don't know how much of this I am responsible for, but I was so proud. What a stellar little soul. So tolerant. He will have a blessed life with such an attitude. Good for him.


  1. I love him sooooooooooooooo


  2. Good for him, and good for you.

  3. i havent been brave enough to take my son to the dentist yet... its comming, tho...

  5. woot! awesome! we havent made that 1st trip as of yet.....Im planning this summer when my 3yo's older brother gets his teeth cleaned, if they go together, it'll be easier for me :)

    your little guy is one handsome fellow!
