Amanda's braces interview at one month in...
So you've had your braces on for one month now...
Yes I have...

How does it feel?
Well I can't sing anymore because whenever I bite down, my tongue is in the way. My teeth are obviously straighter, you can tell... You're putting the pictures up right?

Did you put the teeth obviously straighter thing I just said?

Yes I did.

What is the worst part?
The fact that they've trained themselves to hurt on the days closest to going to the ortho again. Like today, they hurt. Couldn't even eat cereal and I could eat cereal yesterday. They are all "oh no, have to go to the ortho, start hurting now so we can be used to the pain."

Best part?
Uhhhhm, the colors & the fact that my teeth will be straight soon and the fact that they will come off and the fact that retainers aren't as bad as braces.

What have your friends said?
Kate thinks it makes me look older, Camille says my mouth puffs out.
You can obviously see who's more supportive here.

What is the one thing you didn't expect that you wouldn't like?
The fact that when I did get braces, I couldn't eat certain things anymore.
Oh and I couldn't eat breakfast that morning because I was so nervous.

What is the one thing you kind of like that you didn't think you would?
Hmmm. Hmmm. Hmmm....
Oh, I got it!
It doesn't hurt when you actually have them put on.

Do you think it's going to suck having to brush your teeth at school in a few months?
YES. Immensely.
That's why I'm hoping Kate gets braces too so I won't feel left out, we can go together.
We'll be The Brace Team.
And then when Camille gets hers, she can come along too.

How has it affected playing your flute?
Not at all.

Do you have anything else to add?
Uhm... *sigh*
You should try playing "Tap Tap Revenge" for your Ipod Touch. It's fun.

I want to show you your pictures so you can see the differences.
Hooo, look at that, they're all nice and straight... except for that one over there...

Before the braces went on...

The day the braces were put on...

This morning before we went to see the orthodontist...

After her appointment this morning... notice the fly new rubberband colors.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
