More appointments today. Dentist this time. Still, very far away. Sigh. Driving in the rain again since that seems to be all it does every day! And cold. I was tempted to turn the heat on for a while it was so damp and cold. My daughter has huge sensory issues, so the dentist is a really tough visit for her. I still brush her teeth for her, she would not be able to coordinate that real well, and she hates the entire process. We have tried every toothpaste for kids that I could find and have finally hit on one that she will at least tolerate. She hates the feel of the toothbrush on her teeth, so it is a struggle everyday. I have tried bribes, treats, whatever, she doesn't care, she just doesn't want it done. The dentist they go to specializes in kids with challenges, so they are really great with her. I hold both her hands and talk to her the whole time and we get through it. I am always amazed she has no cavaties considering what we go through every morning. But, her teeth looked good! We stopped for lunch afterwards, our usual reward for a doctor visit. Sure would be nice if summer would kick in weather wise!
