I started taking Tee to the dentist since she was 6 months old just to familiarise her with the dental chair and it’s surroundings. Even then, she already had quite a few teeth. Now, I take her every 6 months, just in case. She has absolutely no fear visiting the Dentist and in fact, loves the theatrics that come with it. Plus, she gets to take away stickers and balloons. Today, was no different except…..
Just as Tee descended on her rocket ship (I sit on a separate chair 4 feet away) and opened her mouth wide,
“I want to go poo-poo.”
The dentist and I looked at each other questioningly and I panicked.
“Mummy? I want to poo-poo.”
“Can’t it wait?” I asked her Stupid Question Number 1 of the Day.
“No, I need to poo-poo now” she got up. So the Dentist, who was no more than 35 and unmarried, hurried us out of his clinic. I don’t blame him. I don’t exactly think shit and teeth go either.
I whisked her up and darted to the nearest poop hole, thanking the Universe that she had to do a wee earlier so I was clued in to where people……let go. But as soon as we entered, the toilet doors were either all locked or filthy as……
Why does Murphy’s Law have to be Murphy’s Law???
I quickly put her down onto the floor and started using the bidet hose to hose down the seat whilst giving her instructions to HOLD…….begging God to just give her that strength to keep it in before the toilet seat was ready.
“You need to hold it in, OK? Don’t let your poo-poo come out yet.” I urged.
“I can’t!!! My poo-poo is coming out!!!”
Fumbling with antiseptic wipes, then lining the seat with toilet paper all around – layers of it, I commanded,
“Tee! Listen. Just ask your poo-poo to go back inside and come out later. Mummy’s almost done. OK?” Stupid Question Number 2.
Getting really grumpy, she retorted, “NO, I don’t WANT my poo-poo to go back inside!!!!” Her eyes looked at me as though I was some mad raving lunatic.
Pulling down her panties, I kneeled and thanked the Universe again that she was in her school uniform and not jeans!!!
So she didn’t manage to stain her knickers or worst, decorate the toilet floor. P.H.E.W. Thank you, Lord.
We made it back to the Dentist within 15 minutes. No, we didn’t discuss the poop session.
It turns out her teeth are A-OK and he didn’t charge us.**************************************************************************
