Laughing gas

Ok, have I ever told you how much I LOVE laughing gas??

I LOVE it...seriously...I wish I could get one of those big tanks for personal use (like when I need to take the edge off because the boys painted each other's faces with sharpie markers...true story, I swear).

I became intimately aquainted with Nitrous Oxide during the 31 hour labour and delivery of Smooch. We were happily reunited during the much shorter L&D of Noggin.

Well, today I watched Smooch giggle his way through several dental proceedures.

After choosing a grape flavoured "elephant nose" and slowly allowing the nose to be lowered on his nose he proceeded to give us the thumbs up...about 2 dozen times in half an hour...all the while, giggling about the strangest things. I giggled because he gigled and it was a really nice trip to the dentist...very entertaining.

I highly recommend Dr. Kari Stein ... her team works like a well-oiled machine, she does not do unneccesary proceedures (she actually billed us $200 less than her projected amount because once she got in, things looked better than she thought!) and she is fun and caring.

My kids have had the laughing gas too...oh and they will have it again in a few weeks to get more fillings. I love that stuff!!! It's great how they just laugh and giggle through the procedures :)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog also. I got the fabric at Joann's. It is Alexander Henry Kleo design.
