Oh, unrelated...S's first dentist appointment was this morning. If you have a small child that hasn't been to the dentist yet, I highly recommend finding a pediatric dentist. She had been to the dentist with us before, and even though the hygienists ate her up and the dentist told her jokes and gave her stickers, she wouldn't even consider letting any of them near her mouth. Today, however, there were toys and brightly colored walls and cartoons, and she thought it was actually fun. So check it out if you've got a little one with dental needs.
Now, I'm off to brew some tea and turn this humbug day into a fun day. Or at least a day that's not quite so humbug*.
*S heard the term humbug yesterday and she'd like to know what kind of bug it is...like a spider or a mosquito? And if you leave it alone, will it leave you alone like most bugs??
