Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen things about Courtney's day today

1. I have my 5-yr-old son with me at work this morning.

2. He has his first ever dentist appointment in about an hour.

3. I have printed 5 coloring pages off the internet for him to color.

4. He is sitting at the side table in my office coloring and eating popcorn.

5. I found some kid cassettes in my cabinet for him to listen to.

6. Zip-a-dee-doo-dah just ended, and It's a Small World is now playing.

7. He also brought a backpack with some of his toys to play with.

8. He was so excited about coming to work with Mommy.

9. He is also excited about going to the dentist (?!)

10. We'll see if he's still excited after he's been. lol

11. He keeps insisting that the dentist will give him a new GREEN toothbrush.

12. I hope they have a green one, because he's pretty set on it.

13. After his appointment I will take him to lunch, and then drop him off at preschool and I will come back to work. Should make the work day seem to go by fast! Yea!

UPDATE: Everything went very smoothly at his dentist appointment! He was an angel, behaved perfectly, laid still with his mouth open, and let them do their thing. He thought the sucker hose thingy was funny (?!!! I hate that thing!). They let him pick 3 toys and a sticker when he was done. And they had even better than the green toothbrush...they had a purple and green Power Rangers toothbrush!!! He was thrilled!

(Okay, I don't have time to figure out how to do the auto linky thing today, so that will have to wait.)

I love #12! I hope he isn't disappointed. For your sake ;).

Lingerie Lady said...

Great list! My little one has her first dentist appointment on Monday. I am hoping she will be more grown up about it than I was today at my appointment. I was crying before he even touched me.

My Thursday Thirteen are up.

Here's to hoping the dentist appointment went well!

Lazy Daisy said...

Hope he got his green tooth brush. Love the list and the love of your boy came through too!

I was a veterinary school librarian, but I kept coloring books in my office for the unprepared parents who never figured out that kids can get really bored going to work with mommy (if she's a student). Sounds like you covered all the bases.

FrogLegs said...

Did he get the toothbrush? I've come back to find out! :)

Master Enigma said...

I want a green toothbrush.

You should be so proud of him for being brave at the dentist. I will not go anymore unless I get a power ranger toy and stickers.

My 13 is humming along to It's A Small World over at

my kids have all grown to enjoy the dentist, i think a few early checkups that are fun have helped. a green power ranger toothbrush, sweet!
