Fun at the Orthodontist Office

It was time for my son to pay a visit to the orthodontist.  He's not one to sit quietly in a chair and wait his turn.  He always has to find or provide some type of entertainment.

"Mama," he said.  "Hold these cups."  He grabbed a few cups from the sink and put them up to his ears.

I held the cups on his ears.  Then he put one over his nose, and a few on top of his head.

"How do I look?'  he asked.


The next source of entertainment involved karate.  He imagined he was a black belt karate master.  He ran around the office doing karate moves in front of the other patients.

"Dude, get over here," I said.  "You're going to hurt someone!"

The last form of entertainment involved a couple of tropical plants.  They were very pretty bush-like flowering things.  My boy crawled under one and disappeared.

"Bubba, get out of the jungle," I said.

"Yeah, Tarzan," joked a nurse.  "I've had that plant ten years. If you hurt my baby, I'm going to hurt you!"

Uh oh.  And that was the end of the fun.

  2. That reminds me of a little boy I saw at Kiddo's last orthodontist appointment. Kept walking around and having fun. Though he also seemed to enough getting spacers put in and I thought that a little strange that he didn't seem to be in pain. But, that's a good thing.
