LJ Gift Thanks!  
The wonderful pheebs1 gave me a virtual gift-- pretty balloons on my User page. Thank you, Pheebs! And I will enable your Wincest-writing any way I can. ;)

I also got some lovely mistletoe from deirdre_c back during the Holiday season, and though I sent my thanks let's just mention it again: Thank you, Deirdre!

In recent news, I'm about to start posting up a T-Bag series, beginning today. This is a five-parter that's been in the works for awhile. Hope my Prison Break folks like it.

My children's teeth continue to stab us in the pocketbook. Lauren is getting a bunch of stubborn baby teeth pulled as soon as her early braces come off (she had a palate-spreader and such). She'll have some bicuspids removed later, but we're keeping that info under wraps for now. My son's emerging second front tooth that is so pointy-looking... apparently is the WRONG front tooth. Joy. The big tooth and the one next to it swapped positions up in the gums, and I see braces in his future to drag the one tooth over and out of the way of the big front tooth. That'll look great with the glasses he got earlier this year... :(

But! It's Thursday! Happy Joy-Joy! \o/

♥, sweetheart!

Also, our very first ever orthodontist appointment is Tuesday. I live in fear.

*does the Happy Thursday Dance*

Thank you, Deirdre! It was such a lovely thought, your gift. Definitely put me in the holiday spirit! :)

Braces-- augh. We knew our daughter was in trouble, because she got my husband's mouth (high, narrow palate). She got braces early (age 8) to split and spread the palate-- apparently much easier at that age than when my sister did it at age 11 or 12. (! to the whole concept)

My son, well... we thought we'd be waiting until the typical braces age. But noooooooooooooooo. Stupid mis-ordered teeth. :( He had a cousin who had an undescended front tooth, and finally around age 11 or so they had to open the gum and start dragging it down bit-by-bit with the aid of braces. Geez, what a nightmare!

My bank account feels your pain. :0 We can mingle money-saving tips for the rest of the year....

:D I swear this is where I bog down myself, nowadays. Flailing over the title! Back in the day (*cough*), like a year ago, I sometimes wrote the titles before the stories.

Can't even remember how that worked, now. ;)

And you're very welcome! All efforts in the name of Wincest reap their own rewards. :D

But braces are all like, clear and magically invisible nowadays! They're not any cheaper though, I'm afraid :0
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Venushalfshellvenus on January 19th, 2007 03:39 am (UTC)
:D They're only invisible if they're not doing major structural work, Which, sadly, is not the case for either child.

Though I really hope we won't be seeing Christopher with a guy-wire attachment to a single tooth and a 3-year-long drag force to force it into place. His cousin's treatment lasted forever for that one thing!

Lol I was having this whole conversation about dental metalwork with a bunch of people recently and lucky for you the hottest guy of the bunch is the one who had to wear headgear AND neckgear in school. So there is hope for your young Christopher after adolescence, lol.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Venushalfshellvenus on January 19th, 2007 03:48 am (UTC)
Whoa. Clearly, the guy emerged as a swan. :D

Christopher doesn't have to wear his glasses all the time yet, and he's terribly cute (and knows it).

So perhaps the other view is, this might take him down a peg and bring some humility to his life. ;) At least for awhile...
