D-day…the bird that didn’t fly6 February , 2013
Well, at least I had my teeth cleaned.
Nicola was all fired up to go until presented with the actual dentist, and then she just flat out refused.
She was more than happy to chat to him about all kinds of things, as long as he kept a respectable 2m distance at all times.
Reasons why I think this failed:
1) Nicola had an injection yesterday and wasn’t feeling positive towards doctors
2) Also she has an eye infection (blocked tear duct again) and the drops are putting her in a less than cooperative mood
3) She appears to distrust people with grey hair in principle
4) I neglected to prep her for the masks they wear…silly me.
For my next trick I might resort to straight out bribery…plus mask prepping. Other than that not too sure. At least they didn’t charge me for the unused appointment. And at least it’s just a check up and not an actual dental problem?
Photos from the day:

Minutes before putting her foot down.
Macdonald’s breakfast look…she missed the breakfast time at school.
She asked for a burger, chips and creme soda but ended up skipping the burger. One bite in she declared, “This is disgusting!” and that was that.
We live to fight another battle…
