Jack is GROOVY!

Well, his teeth are anyway.  After a visit to the dentist earlier this week, we found out that Jack's molars are extremely "groovy".  So what? you say. Well, this, combined with his regular intake of sticky prunes, has resulted in two cavities.  I felt sick. I feel that I am somewhat of a Nazi-mom when it comes to brushing, food selection and regular dental visits. My kids are not allowed to eat those ever-so-popular fruit snacks.  I rarely give them juice.  Like chocolate milk, it is reserved for "special" occasions. I THOUGHT the prunes were a smart choice to combat his bowel issues.  Looking back, I just wasn't thinking at all.  Prunes are sticky, sugary (albeit good for the digestive system) cavity producers. Well, to be fair to the prunes, he does have those groovy teeth, but who knew?! 

To conclude my ranting, I have to end on a positive note.  Jack, the rock star, went marching into the dentist office, without me and had both cavities filled at the same time.  Not a tear was shed and if you ask him, he will tell you that he was BRAVE at the dentist today.  What a guy!  He even scored an ice skate key chain.  This was a rainbow ending to a previously cloudy day.

Wow, what a brave little guy - Aunt Sharon and Uncle Steve are very proud of him. We think he really deserves some gummy bears and chocolate milk. If mom doesn't treat him to these special treats, we certainly will the next time we see him!
Love, the Kimmets
