thanksgiving holiday in the US. It's considered the most important holiday for people
here, and families get together and eat eat eat. The kids were off school since Thurday
and we had a great time together for 4 full days. Timothy had a thanksgiving party
at their school last Wednesday.. and of course he didn't cooperate. He stood there
and just hang around while other kids sang the songs and did hand motions. I am used
to it so I only found it funny. Last week both boys went in for dental cleaning.
Timothy did VERY well. I was really surprised. Last time it was very bad, he cried,
kicked, hit, and screamed the whole way... so I really didn't get my hopes up this
time before we went... I even thought about cancelling the appointment.
But we prepared him a little, by borrowing the books from the library about a child
going to see the dentist. He even cried when I read the story to him :0)
Well, in short, he did very very well. He cried for about 1 minute, then becuase I
held him really tightly, that probably made him feel safe. He stopped crying and
Dr. Mai was able to clean his teeth. We even got him to take some x-rays of his
front teeth. They tried his back teeth but becuase it made him gag so maybe next
time. I totally agree with Timothy though because I myself really don't like having
my teeth take X-rays... so uncomfortable.
