Really?

L (my 4-year-old): Mommy did you go to the dentist when you were a kid?

Me: Sure, honey.

L: Did you go to my dentist?

An uncomfortable silence.

Me: Ah, no. I don't think she was born yet.

  14. It's the same on our end too. When reviewing a medical history I can't help but say to myself, "this person wasn't even born until after I finished dental school!--And they're an adult!"
