My Brave little man!

Today Jorge had his first dentist appt.  He kept saying he didn't want to go, but in the end he was very brave.  First the hygienist, Mrs. Julie, showed him all her "toys" (aka equipment) and what she was going to do with them.  After she finished just showing them to him he said, "mommy, we all done now?"  Too funny.  

Here she is flossing his teeth.. 

I didn't get any pics of her actually cleaning his teeth because i had to hold his hands.  He kept "still" but cried through that part.  This picture is right after that ordeal.  Then he was fine. 

He even let me get a picture of him with Mrs. Julie.   

After he was assured that it was, in fact, "all done" he opened up and started talking to her and to the other women in the room/area.  Of course he was putting on the charm and they were all loving it.  When we stepped out to pay the copay, Mrs. Julie walked by and had this interaction with Jorge:

Julie: Oh you're still here...
Jorge:  Yea, mommy, she gots to pay the monies.
Julie: oh that's good.  Well I'll see you again next time. 
Jorge: Okay.  I bring Awex with me to see you next time.  
Julie:  Okay. 
Jorge: Bye.  You have a good trip (that's his send off lately-its from "The Incredibles" movie).
Julie:  Oh you are too cute.. i love you. (as she knelt down to give him a hug).

Then the receptionist said, "you know, he really is very sweet and absolutely adorable.  And we do NOT say that to all the parents."  

That made my day.  He really did do a great job and seeing him charm the ladies made me smile inside.
