{The Ordinary Moments #5} The Dentist

Last Friday Michael had the morning off work for our family dentist appointment. Not exactly the most exciting way to spend a morning off, but needs must ;)

This is only the second or third time that Alfie's been when the dentist has had a look at his teeth and I was so proud of how he behaved. I think it helps that our dentist is absolutely lovely and has a little boy herself a year younger than Alfie, and I think it's great how she really puts him at ease.

It was Daddy's turn in the chair first and Alfie was so interested asking lots of questions. Whilst Michael was having a clean and polish, he climbed up on to the chair and lay with him. It was such a cute moment - one I'm glad I managed to capture!

Next up was my turn and finally, it was Alfie's turn. He couldn't wait to get in the chair and was such a good boy letting our dentist looking in his mouth. His teeth are in really good condition and she was really pleased that he's got rid of his dummy (he's not had it for 4 months now).

I really hope Alfie will continue to  be so co-operative going to the Dentist as I really do think it's important to get kids into the habit of going.

As he was such a good boy, we may have had a McDonald's breakfast, as a treat before going home ;) Our local McDonald's has recently undergone a make over, so they now have a bench which has tablets on. As soon as Alfie spotted them, he got his breakfast and went playing on them whilst Michael and I finished our coffee. It was lovely to let him have that bit of independence so we could enjoy our breakfast. Luckily, we were on the table right next to the tablets, so we were able to let him get on with it :)

Alfie's turn - he was such a good boy

I can't get over how grown up he looks! 


  1. He does look so grown up in these photos! And what a good boy, I must admit we have been a bit naughty with the dentist and haven't been regularly. You have reminded me to make an appointment as it is so important for them to learn when they are young so they aren't nervous about it. x

    1. He does doesn't he! I've no idea where my baby went! He was a superstar. Luckily we've taken him since he was still in my belly and because we have family appointments he's always been used to going. I'm sure the girls will be great if you take them, it is good to get them used to it :) xx
