  • Yep, we did it too, and yes, it was difficult. Just know that it has to be done and that it won't take all that long. I don't know how old your child is (we had it done twice, both times when my daughter was young school-age), but if she's old enough, promise to take her for an ice cream cone or something else she enjoys afterward. Sometimes being a parent is hard :(
    Good luck!
