The Drs. Powell

My kids were pretending to be dentists today. I asked Jack what dentists do. He said, "They show people how to brush their teeth and they take pictures of their teeth." Pretty accurate from a kid who hasn't been to the dentist but once, and that was a year ago, and he was screaming throughout the exam. We never got to the taking pictures of his teeth part.

This is how they teach their patients to brush their teeth. That little pink blur is Melody. She thinks that jumping up and down is an important component of teeth brushing.

You can see they each have a backpack or a suitcase.
This is because they go to people's houses and they need their supplies, such as kitchen utensils they call toothbrushes, My Little Pony gear, and race cars.
You will notice that they each have a "bib" around them. Their bibs are their blankies. Yes, Jack's does have little pink flowers on them and yes this does drive my husband crazy. He has issues with certain things Jack has or enjoys doing...but that's really material for another post.
I think they're ready for Dental School, no?

They are too funny! I love it!

Oh, that is sooo funny. Especially since Jack apparently can't stand the dentist!

At least they have all of the necessary gear packed up and ready to hit the "teeth cleaning" trail.

Ha ha! Maggie's idea of brushing her teeth is sucking the toothpaste off the brush (very loudly). We are having issues lately with the actual brushing part so maybe your kids can talk to her!

You just reminded me...I am way late for scheduling my dentist appointment.

You aren't supposed to jump up and down while brushing? Who knew? ;-)

If you don't jump up and down how is the tooth brush going to move? ;)
