These photos seem to indicate that getting their teeth cleaned went well. That's because I couldn't take pictures of the real good parts. I had to hold josie on my lap for her cleaning ( though at least her mouth was open while she was crying so her teeth were easier to clean). Ella on the other hand let them count her teeth but clamped her jaw shut for the actual cleaning part.
So not a fun morning for anyone but they have healthy teeth anyway despite a few anomalies. We'll be back in 6 months with another baby watching. I might need to bring reinforcements next time!
