No More Braces!

Today is a monumental day in our household! K got her braces off! They have been on for 3 long years!!!

She was 11 when they went on. Look at how cute she is!


I took a page out of Melisa's book (ok, blog) and bought her a ton of chewy candy and gum that she hasn't had in 3 years. And believe it or not, she has been very, very good about not eating chewy things. In the brown bag are sour patch kids (her favorite!).


The Dentist's office actually gave her an oversized waterbottle filled with chewy candy and gum as well! And balloons! What fanfare! And have you ever heard of a dentist giving out candy?!

Here she is now, my beautiful 14 year old with her newly fashioned pearly whites just before she chomps into her grilled cheese sandwich (hence the hurry up and take the picture face).

Congratulations K!!!

Good for her! My daughter just got hers off yesterday after 3 years. The ortho gave her a goodie bag with gum, chewy candy, beef jerky, etc. Very cool!

Congratulations! :) What a happy day! That dentist is no fool, giving her all that candy means return business! LOL!
