    News from The Middle of the Country
    My poor Thing Two needs to have oral surgery :( I am sad about this - nervous, anxious, and sad. She has a "rare condition" wherein she has an extra tooth in the very front top of her mouth. Some people have this extra tooth, and it's no big deal. But my Thing Two ... it's a bigger deal. It's causing a log jam in her gums, and the OTHER big teeth - the ones that are supposed to be there - can't get through. I've started to see things shifting in her gums, and yet the baby teeth aren't coming out - a full year after her first front baby tooth fell out and the big one grew in. So the Ex took them to the dentist, and low and behold - there is an Issue.

    They have a consultation with an oral surgeon on Monday. I hope all goes well. This is definitely not a fun time to be far away.

    Thing One got word today that she was selected out of several auditioning children for a production that her theater group will be putting on in the fall. This group doesn't usually use auditions for anything other than role assignments -- kids don't usually get rejected. But this is their .... "special' production, and auditions were required to be in the troupe. And she got in!!!

    She is very excited, but Beloved and I are nervous. The timing threatens to overlap with our trip to Disneyland, but we won't know for sure until well after we buy the tickets.

    What to do, what to do.

    Otherwise --- We're going away tomorrow!!

    And I'm NOT bringing the computer!! So I'll see y'all on Tuesday eve!!

      I had that tooth thing as a kid too - I'd completely forgotten about it 'til I read your post!!

      I had surgery to correct it when I was 8 or 9 and I don't remember it slowing me down much at all. I'm sure everything will be fine.

      Congrats to Thing 1 - that's awesome!

      Yay Thing 1! I was a big drama kid when I was young, I think it was very good for me.

      I'm sorry to hear about Thing 2, but a girl I was a nanny for just had that done last Christmas and she was fine a few days later. Lots of special treats and whatnot helped.

      But I know it must be very stressful that you can't be with her!
