The delivery was made three days late, and instead of the two books I had ordered, I got a box of diapers. Now I’m waiting on the reorder and have to return the wrong one. Grrr.
I can't help but think that if you were the other household - the one which got books instead of diapers - that this might have ended up on a different thread entirely...

Kid #4 eats loudly. Very loudly. When she eats her cereal in the morning, it sounds like she's munching on BBs. The same sound with mashed potatoes. Weird.

Does she have TMJ?

Nothing medical there. Kid #3 actually goes "glug, glug, glug" when she drinks, so there might be something hereditary. Since the older ones have moved out, we've gotten to know the younger ones a little better.
