I just took my DD to the dentist for her first check up and basically it comes down to it has to be done whether they are screaming, happy or just don't care. My DD can be any of the above, she can be a wailing mess one night, the next fine, the next trying to grab my face and rip it off. I don't care if she doesn't like it, it has to be done, I don't want her teeth rotting out of her head, that would be worse than 2 minutes of screaming and kicking, IMO. The dentist said they may not like it, but that we had done a good job with brushing and to continue, so that's how it is. I ALWAYS am the bad guy though, DH rarely brushes DD's teeth and so she gets all mad at momma
: and Daddy is the king
. Oh well he puts her to bed now every night so I guess my 5 minutes of
DD are alright, ugh I just wish it was easier, and Ive tried all the tricks, they just don't work with her.
