Emergency pediatric dentistry at 9 am to extract a broken lower front tooth, whose semi-exposed nerve must have been unbearable all weekend. And yet she didn't even cry all the time. Even slept part of the time. Took three to hold her down, but it was all over in under 10 minutes and now she's happy little schmutzy face again, all unpleasantness forgotten (we hope). I still have memories of being pried out from between the sink and the wall in the dentist's office, after he promised I would "see the fairies" which not surprisingly just plain freaked me out.
