Ok, so, someone pointed out to me that I haven't blogged in awhile...actually, awhile is since November, so back into bliss I go...
Smooch had a toothache in early December. We had him booked in with a pediatric dentist in February, but he was complaining about his tooth hurting so we took him to our regular dentist. I could forsee this being a challenge, so I had to think of something big...HUGE...with which to bribe him.
I promised Smooch that if he co-operated with the dentist (who actually had to do a pulpotomy...like a mini root canal) that we would go directly to the pet store and buy him a hamster.
Smooch was the most co-operative pediatric pulpotomy patient in the history of dentistry...giving me the thumbs up, periodically, to stop my from crying and tearing my hair out.
As promised, we drove directly to Petland.
I had no idea that hamsters required so many accessories;
Habitrail Ovo Studio Cage - $65
Hamster food/wet tail medicine - $13
Shavings/Chew toys/Salt lick - $12
Old grey hamster - Free with purchase
Having your 6 year old stop crying about his tooth hurting = Priceless
