Xander and the Dentist

Last week Xander went to the dentist for the first time. I was worried that he would give the dentist or me a hard time. Little did I know, that the night before Mia sat him down and told him what to expect.

When they called his name, I fully expected to have to go in with him. Instead, he walked right up to the door, not even glancing back at me and went inside all by himself. The dentist couldn't stop telling me how impressed she was of him and how great he did . She said that kids his age usually have a harder time. He amazed me!

So this week, I had to have some work done and took Xander with me. The dentist is a really nice woman who is baby hungry and loves my kids so she said it would be fine to bring him while they worked on me. She told me that they have plenty of babysitters. I packed Xander a bag and some snacks and left him in the waiting room while the receptionist and other workers kept an eye on him.

I thought for sure he would be back by me in no time, but nope. Not a sound. He had so much fun with the ladies that he didn't even need me! Xander and Mia are alike in a lot of ways and I have been afraid that Xander would be like Mia and have a hard time with new situations and become clingy.

Once again he amazed me. I came out and he asked me, "You have fun back there?" I told him he was such a good boy and he says, "Thank you." As we were leaving I told him to tell the workers "Thank you" for watching you. He turns to a customer sitting behind him and says, "Thank you."

By this time, I can tell that all the women can't get enough of Xander and judging by the smiles on their faces, I could've left him there all day and they wouldn't have minded. They tell him to come back in and get a treasure box prize. This is what he chose.


He tells me as he puts it on, "I so funny!" What a hoot! I just love this boy!

I love when kids all of a sudden feel comfortable and secure and become perfect. Ahhhh, perfect kids. I had one or two.

So adorable! I am totally impressed by this- back at Disneyland, he was afraid of women... such a change!
