The kid is alright!

So, after all my worry and sleeplessness, everything is ok with Emma. For which I am very very glad, don't get me wrong. I just thought that she would milk the situation for a little longer than one day. As I type this, she is in her room practicing the french horn!
She has been on a constant dose of Motrin, so that helps. And Mom has been making smoothies on demand, which also helps. Planned on making lots of her favorite soft things, but she really is ok. Smaller bites is the key.
And why WHY do some kids have to tell her that it's ok to chew gum? We talked about it at length, and the oral hygenist and dentist both said no gum. Then I get 2 pre-teens that tell her it's ok, and that makes my life that much harder. Aaah!
Time to finish making dinner. Happy Thursday!

I'm glad that she's feeling fine and there wasn't too much discomfort.
