So I took Owen to the dentist this morning and we had this lovely conversation in the FULL waiting room...
Owen: I am ALWAYS going to be younger than Aiden. It's NOT fair!!
Me: Ah yes, but you will ALWAYS be older than Olivia!
Owen: ya hehehehe (insert evil cackle here)
~ colours peacefully for about a minute ~
Owen: When I was born did I come out of your VAGINA (said at top of lungs volume)
Me: um, yes... shhhhhhh! (thought process- no no no no we can't possibly be talking about this in the middle of the waiting room!)
Owen: When I came out of your VAGINA did you PEE me out? (insert maniacal laughter here)
Me: um, no. (thought process- ABORT ABORT ABORT must stop this conversation NOW!) Hey what a great picture of SpongeBob that is you are colouring!
(thought process- why the heck did we teach him the real names for private parts???)
Dental Hygienist: Owen it's your turn!
Me: (thought process- oh thank-you God!) Let's go Owen (rushing loud child away from laughing waiting room people)
All in all the visit went well... we had a few more fascinating conversations with the lovely Dental Hygienist of course but thankfully private parts were not mentioned again. Owen does have TWO cavities (seriously we are sucking at the tooth care apparently) but they don't need to fix them because they are on teeth that will fall out soon.
I bet that office just can't wait to see us again on Friday for Aiden's "dental repair" appointment (first of 3). Yikes.
