Brave Girl


Eve just got back from having a cavity filled at the pediatric dentist. They used orange scented nitrous oxide to prep her for the shot, and they used a mint numbing gel. She looked at me with a hesitant expression and her eyes got that glassy sheen from beginning to tear up. I asked if she was nervous and she nodded yes. She wanted to hold my hand, as opposed to me holding hers. I figure it gave her a small measure of something she could control. She rarely moved during the procedure. Her lip did slip into the little speculum that kept her jaw open and she would point at it with tears in her eyes. I was so proud of her as was the doctor. The novocaine is wearing off and she feels the pain. I can just hug her.

Noah is at camp for this week. It is a day camp so he goes in the morning and I pick him up in the afternoon. The theme this year is "Cubs in Space". What a perfect theme for my science guy.

I love the layouts. We were outside this morning and Dakotta pointed pointed out the clover and said,"Like Evie Bugs" and then told me Evie has Hannah Montana on her shirt.

I hope Evie Bug feels better soon.

Big hugs for your daughter. Ugh, can she come and hold my hand when I go to the dentist?? *s*

Awwww - your poor daughter. I hate to see my child in pain and scared - it hurts my heart. I hope she feels better soon.

On a lighter note - I love your layouts!

Wonderful layouts! My 6 year old just got her first fillings last month and she did wonderfully! She said they didn't give her needles, but yet she was frozen for over 2-3 hours each time?

Love all your layouts, but the Ninja Fairies made me laugh out loud! LOVE it!!!

I want to hug my little Evie bug. Granny hurts when the babies hurt.

Dawn said...

Even though she was nervous (poor thing!) glad to hear it was not a bad experience. Great layouts!

Eve, you are a very brave girl. I bet you have the most prettiest teeth ever.

As for the clover layout, I am having a big giggle, she doesn't look too sure does she?
