Yeah, that’s right. My son is 4 and I’m now just taking him to the dentist for the first time. Im pretty much the worst parent in the world. I did not know they could go as early 2! I’m so stupid. And I have definitely learned from this first experience because my little man has like 10 cavities! I could cry. I feel so bad for the kid and in this case, it was totally on us not cracking the whip sooner or more often. Who only lets their kid brush their teeth once a day?! Me. Just horrible. No more! Time to get serious. Twice a day, using the flosser thingy and more fluoride! But nonetheless, they took amazing care of him and he actually had a blast. He didn’t want to leave. Crazy right?! The staff was incredible, and there were toys galore so Jace felt right at home. They even let him pick out prizes after. I was so surprised that he did everything they asked him to, too. He was such a rockstar, I was so proud of him. But my eyes wanted to tear up knowing what’s in store for him with the shots to come. One appointment at a time for sure. Fingers crossed.
Jace Face Friday
Grandpa Randy came out for a quick visit last weekend and we had ourselves a little Dunkin Donuts date!! One of our favorite past times with Grandpa. And now that we have a Dunkin’ Donuts in Santa Cruz, I foresee a lot of Dunkin dates to be had in his honor! We love you Grandpa. Thanks for making the trip out!
On President’s Day we took just Jace down to our favorite beach here in Aptos and set up for the afternoon. There was almost no one on our beach. Except for some wind and clouds to cover the warm sun, it was pretty beautiful. The boys ventured off and found some hot coals left over from the night before and got us a little beach bonfire going, using driftwood and any other scraps they could find. Soon we were all cuddled up by the fire, snacking and listening to the wind and waves. I even got some more reading in. It got pretty chilly out here, and even with a fire and robe on Jace couldn’t stay warm. We called it at that point but all the same it was an awesome day off with our first born. The ocean is so relaxing! And I’m pretty sure he was on cloud nine to have the day with us.
