Photoshoot and the Dentist

Thursday, April 28, 2011

I recently started a new job at the Steal Network as a product editor. I create the pages that are emailed out everyday through BabySteals.com and KidSteals.com. I am able to work part time and almost entirely from home. I am LOVING it so far! It's like putting together a puzzle and I have to go find all the pieces and see what I can come up with. One fun perk is that they need kids to model some of the products that are going to be featured soon. I took Bailey in last week to model a few things and she loved it. She was quite the doll. Here she is modeling a little poofy skirt--she was dancing and dancing as the photographer took her picture.

She also got to model these cute shoes and she was completely ecstatic to be able to sit in the pink chair.

What a fun time!

Bailey also went to the dentist for the first time today. I had been talking to her about it all week trying to prepare her. I told her the dentist was a doctor for your teeth to make sure your teeth are healthy and to make sure they don't fall out (that's the story we often have to use to get her to let us brush her teeth). When we got there she immediately thought the fish tank was the coolest thing ever and also discovered a little play room. Tangled was also playing on the big screen so I thought it would be easy peasy. Well, ONE HOUR later we finally got called back and it was just in time too because Bailey was about ready to have a melt-down. She wanted a bouncy ball in the machine that only takes tokens from the dentist AFTER he cleans your teeth. When we started to walk back to the exam area the almost melt-down switched gears and she decided she was done with the dentist's office and bolted for the door. I picked her up trying to avoid her flying fists and discovered another fish tank that distracted her. Phew! The nurse laid her down on the chair and turned on How to Train Your Dragon and I thought we were set, except she didn't want the headset on and she didn't want to lay down. When the nurse came to clean her teeth though Bailey was so good. She laid there so calmly and didn't make a fuss at all. She was a little hesitant when the dentist came over and asked for a high-5. She wasn't having it, but after he cleaned, flossed, and brushed her teeth with her new pink Dora toothbrush she was handing out high-5's all around. She practically hopped out of the dentist's office and talked about the dentist all day. She prayed about the dentist, told me stories about the dentist and went through our whole family saying that each person goes to the dentist. I would say she's a fan. Good thing because we get to go back in 6 months.
