over heard at the doctor's waiting room . . .

Greetings all,
See this sweet girl, the one who went to school with ringlets today, looking like an angel, speaking with a 19th century British accent & untrained tap dancing . . . 
well we had a conversation in the ante room at the orthopaedic hand surgeon this afternoon, which went something like this . . .
"Mum look at my wobbly tooth, do you think i'll need braces."
"Oh darling, Mummy would have to have an affair with an orthodontist if you do."
"What if Daddy does, with a lady orthodontist, as he's better looking & is away all the time, it would be his way of doing something for the family."
Folks, it's the new step forward in private health insurance rebates!!  
I do hope the orthopaedic surgeon & physiotherapist weren't listening in, they might have felt left out!!  So we wrapped up an otherwise freezingly numb day at a touch football gala with a free appointment (check up on my post operative numb thumb . . . still numb) + a plan for free orthodontics for 4 children, brilliant.  Love Posie

We just paid $3k for wisdom teeth removal. You don't want those teeth ruined after the braces. Best to start planning for that one too! Way too funny

I want a lesson in getting the hair like that. My Mum refuses to show me on the girls so traumatised is she after having had it done to her for so many years as a child. But I LOVE ringlets. LOVE THEM.

Well I do find that your children are direct - similar to mine. Love the ringlets. Priceless (both the conversation and the photo)

Well played, if you ask me.
Now, school fees.
Magoo's principal is female, so Hubby might have to step up to the plate...

Our orthodontist was not interested in a contra deal like that, darn it! and begging didn't help.

Love it! Our middle child said he might like to be a dentist. We can't get him trained up soon enough! I was sitting at the station with him and he was chatting about how much he'd charge "maybe $20 a visit", the blind man nearby overheard and said he'd definitely go to his dentist. We do love the school dentist, $29 a visit is pretty cool.

bahahahahahahah!!! i love it! My son (who is 5) came home from school telling me his friend hasn't been at school all week because he was sick. My son proceeded to say that his friend is sick because he ate a chicken and it was in his tummy making him feel really bad. Turns out that kid had chicken pox!! don't you love how they figure it all out. But yes, affair with the orthodontist and your on your way....your hubby is going to love reading this post ;-)
