Exciting News for Corina

Corina had a very fancy note waiting for her when she got home from school today.

Corina gets to take singing lessons! Woo hoo! I'm really excited for her. You've never seen a kid who loves to sing as much as she does. She sings herself to sleep, and she sings herself awake in the morning. Ever since she was a toddler, the way we know she has woken up is we hear her singing in her bed.

Here's the sad Corina news. She has had a stye on her eye for almost two years now. It gets bigger and smaller and bigger again, but it is stubborn and will not completely go away. She's seen the doctor about it a few times, but now it has really flared up. In a couple of weeks she has to go to a specialist to have it removed. The doctor said they will "shell it like a pea". Ouch!Never does a day go by that someone doesn't say, "What happened to your eye?" She is mostly looking forward to not having to answer that question anymore.

Ouch! That looks painful, poor Corina. Getting it removed sounds even more painful, I feel sad for her. Good thing she's strong!
And YAY for singing lessons!

Good on you for fostering your daughter's talents and interests, instead of pushing your stuff onto her! Once again you prove to me that being an ideal mommy is possible.

Aww shucks. Thanks, Laurie.

You get the cool mom award!
I get styes ... sties... stys... all the time. But they're on the inner part of my eyelid instead of the outside. Ouch.
