What a Day...

Well, I knew this morning was going to be busy but I had no idea what we were in store for. After I got Rye off to school I fed Jo and we went to the bank. I paid of the Nissan!! Woot Woot! After that we ran into Kailua to get a breakfast bagel and a decaf coffee. That took longer than I thought. I then had to go back to base and pick up Rye for her dentist appointment, we headed back into Kailua. This is where it gets interesting. First the dentist told me that since rye's 6 year molars had come in that they should be sealed to help keep them from getting cavities. So we added that onto the visit today. Rye wasn't prepared for this so she got a little dramatic. But we got through it and it was fine. The dentist had then asked if I had any concerns and I mentioned the tooth that fell out when she was 2 and asked if they could check to make sure the adult tooth behind it was doing okay. So she took a second xray and guess what she found? AN EXTRA TOOTH! Rye has a little tooth up there which will block her adult teeth from growing in. So I have now had to make a consultation appointment with an oral surgeon for the day we fly out to Washington. They will have to remove it surgically and then her top teeth should come in fine, though one of them is crooked. After she gets this procedure done I was told that she needs to go and see an Orthodontist. She's got a major crossbite and her bottom teeth are way crowded. UGH! And so it begins...
Then to top it all off, when we were driving back to base to take her back to school she threw up all over herself. So, she's home now, resting and watching TV. What a day. These next few weeks before heading to Washington should go by fast for us. Jo has her 4 month check up, I have a dentist appointment and Rye's got her consult. My oh My!
sidenote: the spell check isn't working on here, hasn't been forever and I don't want to read over this again so there may be some mistakes. Sorry, Beth.

I forgive you. I wish I had some extra stuff going on in the next month to help the time go by faster. Oh well. I'm sure it will still fly by.

I think I'm going to make a countdown caterpillar with the kids...

Ok, back to cleaning!
