Yay! I surprised my daughter today by making it to her field hockey game today. She's eleven years old and its only her second game that she's ever played. I didn't make her first game because I had to work so this was a big deal for the both of us.
Lucky for me the end of my work day thinned out so I was able leave early. I was a little late but I still made it before halftime. It was worth it just to see the surprised look on her face when she saw me standing on the sidelines. Great job Megs!
Working as a dental hygienist in a multi-specialty practice I come across a variety of patients every day. Most patients have the State funded dental insurance so I tend to see a lot of children in all age groups. Every once in a while you come across one that just melts your heart and makes you smile. One such patient came in today for his six month recall appointment. A cute little boy made even cuter by his speech impediment. His name is George.
When George arrived for a prophy six months ago he brought something along that none of us ever forgot. A "Skateboardasaurus". During that visit George entertained us with many stories. He told us how a Tech Deck, a plastic dinosaur and a lot of scotch tape made a great "Skateboardasaurus". He also demonstrated just how well a dinosaur could skateboard.
We couldn't wait for George to come back in for his next recall appointment and finally the wait was over. Today was Georges six month recall and he is just as cute as ever. He made us all smile by telling stories about his favorite movies. (Nemo, SpyKids, and Lavagirl and Sharkboy) And yes he still has an adorable speech impediment. :)
When I showed him that I still had a picture of his "Skateboardasaurus" both him and his mother smiled. I asked him if he still had it. He said that he removed the tape but both the Tech Deck and the dinosaur are safe at home in his toy box. I can't wait to see him again in six months.
