"What's the matter?"
"Mom, how about I a little bit scared."
I was also getting into the dentist chair...
"Mom, how about you go first...you brave enough???"
When all was said and done, he did AWESOME! He was definitely brave enough-and we went at the same time.
As I was tucking him in bed tonight he said,
"Mom, where's my puppy?" (a stuffed puppy that we forgot to take to the dentist's office this afternoon, and one that he likes to sleep with most nights)
"I don't know, I haven't seen your puppy for a few days" (that's why we forgot it-I had no idea where it was-out of sight, out of mind) "I'll go look for it while you close your eyes, okay?"
"Okay Mom, you look one time, then I be sound asleep. You come back and do this... (he squeezed his round little cheeks and moved his head around like he was trying to wake himself up) and ask me questions about where my puppy is...okay?"
"Okay, I'll go look..."
I quickly found the puppy-after wisely asking Daddy if he had seen it-he had. When I went back into Half-pint's bed room he said...
"Where you find him?"
"He was in the cupboard in Momma's bathroom-on top of the sheets. Did you put him there or did your brother?"
"Ummm,... (quiet thinking pause)...Last time I play with him, I put him there. I forgot all about it!!! Thanks Mom!!!"
