I told you I went to the dentist last week, so this brought a little confession to mind. I hate being reprimanded for anything, and can't stand when the hygienist tells me it's obvious I haven't been flossing daily and I need to start to maintain maximum dental health... yada yada yada...

I should floss everyday. I know I should. I intend to after each visit to the dentist.

And then standing at the mirror brushing before bedtime, I realize that if I skip flossing, I can get in bed a minute earlier. Worth it? For this wiped out mom: totally!

Anyway, to throw the hygienist off our tails, we start flossing daily when we get the reminder cards in the mail about our next dentist appointment. So we floss daily for 1-2 weeks before our appointment and they are none the wiser when we get cleaned! They think we're faithful flossers!

Whew! Some things you just need to get off your chest!

I'm not a flosser either, I hate it. I hate how it feels, how it sounds, the taste of blood in my mouth... I'm always straight forward with them, and tell them it's not gonna happen. Last time she didn't even bring it up! :o)

I love your honesty! I'm totally in the same boat as you. I hate the dentist. I'm hoping I'll have a baby on the day of my appt. That would get me out of going! :) Hope Bug doesn't HAVE a bug!!
