A beautiful smile can reveal interesting things in an x-ray. Boyo is going full speed ahead in orthodontia - the consult was today and braces will be on in one week! There were some aspects I could identify as problematic even without explanation from the orthodontist, so I'm glad we're not losing any time. Yes, he's anxious, and so am I (about how he'll deal with it, not about the orthodontia), but trying not to let on. Of course Girlie has been in one phase or another of her extensive orthodontia for nearly five years, so I hope that will help lessen the anxiety a bit for Boyo, in addition to knowing that his case will take about a third the length of time.
My mom is going to celebrate her 80th birthday this month. I didn't think that would be possible.
My Tall Boy is going to have a birthday this month. I didn't think that would be possible - twice.
Dearest is going to have a birthday this month. I've helped him celebrate eighteen of them - there have been times I wished we'd met earlier in our lives, but we would have been different people with different contributions; who can say whether we would have fallen in love?
Worth is subjective, but these things fit very nicely with the way I've been feeling lately. Is it possible I've gone overboard about makeup, braces, and a few birthdays? No. In fact, I think pretty much everything is holy now.
