On Monday, my youngest daughter got her braces. She was a real trooper throughout the process, even though her teeth were very sore the next day.
The night before she had her braces put on, she hosted an “Embrace Your Braces” party. She invited over a few close friends and served all of the things that she won’t be able to eat for the next 12 to 18 months: fruit chews, popcorn, gummi gushers, fruit roll-ups, etc.
Congratulations, Cathy…by this time next year, you’ll have the nicest, most perfect teeth in the family!
