Amanda's braces interview at two months in...
So you had some problems with your braces this month, tell me about them.
~Uhm, one of my wires kept on moving out of place aaaannnd I don't know what this thingy is called right here [pointed to back right lower molar, there is a blue band there] but it fell off.

Is it starting to just feel normal having them now?
~Yup - can't even feel them.

Do you miss chewing gum?
~No... I have a lot of sugar free gum and it tastes the same. My advice to people with braces? Get Stride. [fyi-when you have braces, no gum with sugar]

Are you a little nervous about starting school in a few days?
~Very excited actually, I miss everybody.

But what about your braces maint in school?
~Gonna be hard, hopefully Kate gets them soon so me and her [my daughter is grammatically challenged] can both go to the bathroom to see if we have food in our teeth.

Not just to see if there is food, but to BRUSH TOO RIGHT??

On what?
~On everything.

No. On what?
~I don't know if... if it takes a lot of time. Not to mention, I don't want to look dorky. [She then made a motion of brushing her teeth and a VERY DORKY noise.]

Something kind of big happened last week, do you want to talk about it?

Why not?
~Cuz. Hold on... [texting]

That's cool, I'll just sit here and wait for you to text...
~I guess I'll tell you.

I already know.. you're telling THE WORLD...
~Uhm my friend called me.

You're friend?
~My friend from third grade.

That's it?!?
~hehehe no...

What else?
~I don't know what to say... He called.

~His name is Cody. He called me and I messed up. And this is all my moms fault. Cuz we should have caller ID but we don't. So I thought I had his number and I said, "I'll call you or text you back!" [said VERY girly and high pitched]

SO how exactly is that your mom's fault?
~We should have caller ID and then I would have his number.

Yeah, as opposed to actually ASKING for it...
~That takes too long and I was too busy hyperventilating.

Did you tell him that you have braces?
~Nope, I left that part out.

Are you nervous about seeing him if he does start school here?

Any advice or words of wisdom you want to pass onto other kids that are about to get braces?
~[texting] No not really. It sucks... but I guess that how it's supposed to be. Oh and I hope you don't get them.

Before the braces went on...

The day the braces were put on...

Last month when we went to see the orthodontist...

Last month after her appointment....

Before her two month appt. Look at how much straighter they are! That snaggley tooth is finally getting pulled back into place.

Braces recap:

"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
