Yay, Dland back from the brink of doom for another round!

Urgent news that I was distressed not to be able to post immediately: I put peanuts on my tomato soup instead of crackers, and it was pretty good.

Ah but really, we took Q to the dentist for the first time since the start of the pandemic (does that make us bad parents or good parents? I don’t know, but she wasn’t really letting them do much when we stopped and this time she let them brush her teeth and do an exam of sorts, so…)

Oh but you remember how she busted out her two top front teeth in a scooter accident when she was 4 or 5? And they reattached them, but it was touch and go for a while to see whether we’d be able to save them? Well, they’ve started coming out and she’s going to have to have them extracted. She won’t be able to even consider anything to go in that spot until she’s 18… and then we’ll have to see if she’ll tolerate the procedure involved.

It’s… not ideal. I think missing teeth would be better than the way they look right now. But messed up teeth is an unfair disadvantage I wish she wasn’t going to have to have.
