Brielle's 1st Dentist Appointment!

Brielle did about the same as Bethany. Although, she did wear the sunglasses but I think that's because Bethany didn't want to wear them so the hygienist let Brielle wear them while waiting. Ha! ;)

Pics of Brielle'y!

Say "cheese!" Brielle! Nope, no smiling whatsoever ;)Getting her teeth cleanedHer time with the dentist. Both she and Bethany got a clean bill of health! Yay!Whew! Got all 80 teeth of the girlies' cleaned this month! Now, we wait 6 months until I repeat it again ;)

Bethany's 1st Dentist Appointment!

Today I took the last 2 girls to the dentist for their 1st intro and 3yo dental check-up. The "B" team was more timid with the hygienist and dentist than the other 2 girls. Go figure! ;)

Up first was Bethany. She did NOT want to sit in the chair (I had to sit her down in it myself), let alone recline back in it, wear the sunglasses, use "Mr. Thirsty" and "Mr. Water" and was in no mood for the "string," aka floss. But all in all she did okay. Good for an intro check-up!

Pics of my girly!

Can you tell that she is uncomfortable with the whole situation? Ha! ;)Getting her teeth cleanedLast, but not least, Brielle!

My Cleaning Partner in Crime

For the longest time Jared's been wanting to mop my floors. I kept telling him "no." Well, until this evening. I had to get my floors clean asap (sweep and mop). They needed it! I would like to clean them more often..." *GASP* You mean you don't, Maria?!?!?!" ;) Of course Jared asked if he could help me. He said he could be the wringer of the mop. I said "sure." It seemed like something he could do. Then, when we got to the end of my mopping he asked "can I mop some mom?" I said "sure. you can mop the laundry room." And he did! He loved it - Ha! ;) He did a great job too! Maybe he CAN mop my floors...like every week! ;)

Here's a little clip of him mopping. Yes, he's in his jammies. Yes, he's wearing socks. And yes, that's my washer running in the background. Laundry is a constant in our home ;)

Our 5 Little Guppies

This has been the 1st week of the kids taking swim lessons. So far they have enjoyed them. Well, except for Bethany and then Brielle gets sad because Bethany is sad :( Overall, though, it's been good. We have 1 more week of lessons and then I'm going to sign up the kids for another 2 weeks worth of lessons in July.

Here's a video of them swimming. Enjoy! :)

Anna's 1st Dentist Appointment!

Anna got to watch Suzan get her teeth cleaned and checked so she was ready and able when it was her turn to sit in the chair. She did awesome too! No fussing or crying. Not even a whimper. Wow! She, too, was excited to get her toy and sticker afterwards. And yes, she carried around her new toothbrush, toothpaste and floss here at home, still in the paper bag that the dentist sent them home in. Ha! These girlies make me smile and laugh :D

Anna's ready too!Anna getting her teeth cleanedAnd her with the dentist checking those pearly whites ;)Okay, now 2 down, 2 to go ;)

Suzan's 1st Dentist Appointment!

It's been a while since we had one of our children go to the dentist for the very first time. Well, the girlies start seeing the dentist now at age 3. Today, I took 2 of the 4.

Suzan did SO well! No fussing or crying. Not even a "mama?!?!" accompanied by a concerned look or arms wrapped around my legs. She jumped right into the dentist's chair and enjoyed watching Mickey's Clubhouse while her chompers got a check-up. She knew she would get a toy and sticker afterwards and was excited for that. Plus, this evening she's been carrying around her new toothbrush, toothpaste and floss like it were her princess - Ha! ;) Guess she really liked the dentist, huh? :)

Suzan all ready!Suz getting her teeth cleanedThen getting her teeth checked by Dr. Grace1 down, 1 to go ;)

For those women out there, remember twirling around in your dress when you were a little girl? Trying to get the skirt big and puffed out? Well, my girlies became dress twirlers today. It was very cute to see them twirl around and around, watching their dresses puff out :) I have it on video and will post later.

Suzan definitely loved twirling in her Sunday dress today :) Too cute! She asked and asked me, over and over, "mama, take my picture. take my picture mama. mama, take my picture. take my picture mama." (she remembered me taking video of her and her sisters twirling earlier and so wanted me to do it again). I told her "okay" and we went outside for a twirl picture :DAh, my girlies ;) They are so sweet and cute!
