I took the oldest kid to the orthodontist yesterday (along with the baby, who fortunately had calmed down and forgotten his inexplicable Hour of Rage... he seems fine now). She's going to have to have braces, even though she's not yet ten. Apparently her permanent teeth came in early. She has four baby teeth that should fall out within the next month, and then she'll get braces. (Since she's been skipped a year, the other kids in her grade are getting braces too, so this isn't a bad thing.) And the cost of these things... oy. I hope insurance picks up a lot of it!
I'm borrowing from Wendy again and using a song for the title of this post. This happens to be from one of my very favorite songs, which I listen to on almost a daily basis. I'm feeling spontaneous today, so let's have a little contest. The first person to identify the lyric above (answer in the comments) wins a pdf or HTML of my romantic comedy All I Ever Wanted.
