Luckiest Woman of the Year

Now, before you start reading, put your jealousy aside. Seriously. My life has been full of so many perks lately, and I feel badly that I'm flaunting them around.

In the last month, I have taken two three-year-olds shoe shopping, and yesterday I hauled them both to the dentist. Yes, it's true! I know, you're screaming, "Why not me, God? WHYYYYY????" I told you - green with envy! It has been a par-tay!

So, while you salivate over my Lifestyle of the Slightly Inebriated, let me fill you in on the details of yesterday.

Foster son and youngest daughter. Foster son has general check-up, goes in by himself and comes out smiling with large, pink balloon in the shape of a sword (that's a whole other post in itself!). Daughter is going in to get her THIRD crown in three months for the same broken tooth. It broke initially on the playroom floor. First porcelain crown fell out while eating popcorn ("Here Mommy. Me no want to eat my tooof."). Second porcelain/silver crown fell out last week while - ah heck, I don't know what happened but apparently she took it to the teacher at Parent's Day Out and said, "My tooof came out on Noah's head."

So, forget aesthetics. We are going for the solid silver, cram-that-baby-in-there-and clamp-it-down-tight variety. After two hours, one cup of oral sedation, an hour of goofy gas, and still screaming, flailing and kicking the ENTIRE time ... she has her new silver tooth. If this one comes out, I'm just buying her dentures.
