I just finished putting my 5-year-old and my 3-year-old to bed.
Earlier today, they both went to the dentist to have a check-up, and for Luci, it was a semi-traumatic experience. She did really good, but at one point, she was seriously distraught about this gun-looking thing which sprayed water everywhere, and the vacuum they were going to put in her mouth. Afterward, however, they both got bags full of treats like a new toothbrush, toothpaste, a pencil, a magnet, and such like that. That seemed to make things alright.
Anyway... As soon as we were done brushing their teeth tonight in preparation for going to sleep, Luci, with new toothbrush in hand, held it up and declared with with a thoughtful expression,
"This is the best day of my LIFE! I got a NEW TOOTHBRUSH!"
So, there ya have it. The best day of Luci's life - documented for ages to come.
Ah, I can't help but wish life were as simple now for me, yet, seeing through her eyes is definitely a breath of fresh air for me. Hehe... Something as simple as a new toothbrush.
I think both of them are sleeping with their new possessions as I type.
