Little Miss recently had a dentist visit her school, and she’s been very proud of this visit. She tells all of us about it all the time, and she’s begun to lecture us on what the dentist taught them.
My mom relayed this little tidbit earlier today from a conversation she had with Little Miss:
LM: Grandma, did you know we had a dentist come to visit my school?
G: Yes, Princess, you told me about it.
LM: You have to brush your teeth every day to be sure you don’t get cavities.
G: You’re right, that’s very important.
LM: And you can’t eat junk food. Sugar is bad for your teeth.
G: Did the dentist explain why?
LM: Yes, he did. There are lots of things you shouldn’t eat. You shouldn’t drink pop either. And you shouldn’t eat candy or chew ice.
At this point, she paused a bit, apparently thinking very hard.
LM: But Grandma, it’s ok. You can still drink wine.
