A Laughing We Shall Go...

It's never a dull moment in the car with 2 tweens. My mom got to experience that yesterday. She came with us to the every 8 week ortho appt.. It's not so much the actual appt. that is the fun part of the experience, it is the 45 minute car ride (both ways) that keeps me in stitches.

Picking the girls up from school, we head up Cape to the ortho. The talk immediately turns to warning Nana about the farting that ensues from B when she gets within 20 miles of the orthodontist. 

"I fart when I get nervous and Dr. N makes me nervous!"

We had to open the windows and "replace" the air a few times. 

About 10 minutes before, during and 10 minutes after, noone wants to be around the girls. They do not like to have their braces tightened and literally "fight" for the good hygienist that causes the least amount of pain. The only good thing about getting the braces tightened is changing the color of the rubber bands. Finally the Christmas bands are off and we are on to more spring/Valentine colors

We stopped at our favorite cupcake store, Cupcake Charlies,  after the Dr's. It was Nana's first time. Quite an experience for a first timer. We inhaled them in the car, in the parking lot. The ride home included a stop at one of my favorite stores, The Plum Porch.   The girls' had Nana laughing her silent laugh that looks like this (thank you, K).

I can't tell you exactly what we were laughing about, just that we were laughing....at times uncontrollably. I think I need to start bringing a tape recorder with me everywhere, especially in the car, to remember specific things that are said.

No matter, we were laughing, 3 generations, in hysterics, driving down the mid Cape. That is always a good time.

Sounds like fun, even with the 'air replacement' issues. Love the picture!
