October found us at the orthodontist ready to say good-bye to braces!
Everything went very well, according to the orthodontist, and the braces got to come off earlier than we were thinking.
Matthew and I, neither one ever had braces, so we really couldn’t relate to Renae in this experience. My older sister had them and M’s younger brother had them. We each have friends that had them.
We heard comments shared with Renae about it hurting when the braces were adjusted or about how full your mouth felt at first and how big and empty your mouth feels when the braces come off. We heard comments about making sure to wear retainers. It was nice to have people that could relate and share their experiences with her.
Life is so full of experiences and events.
AND…this was a celebrate, happy, hooray day!
They’re coming off!!
