First Cavity

So, a few weeks ago, Canyon started complaining about one of his teeth while he was eating. After dinner I took a look at it and saw that there was a pretty good size cavity in one of his back teeth. I cleaned it and flossed it for him really good that night to get all the food out of it and then called the dentist the next morning. Canyon always brushes his own teeth. We do it together though so he can watch me and do what I do while he's brushing. Apparently he's not doing that great of a job.
Yesterday we had out dentist appointment to get his tooth fixed and he did really well. He was pretty nervous and didn't want to go because I was a genius and told him that they were going to give him a shot to numb his mouth... Don't know what I was thinking. Anyway, he did awesome! They gave him some headphones and he listened to emperor's new groove and tarzan the whole time. The covered his eyes when they gave him the shot and then when it was all over I asked him if it hurt and he didn't even know they had given him the shot yet.
So after it was all said and done, we've decided that mommy will be brushing his teeth for him for a little while. :)

Wow! I have never actually seen a cavity (pre-filled). Sounds like he was a great sport!
