Brace Yourself

A couple of years ago Mary was evaluated for braces.  She definitely needed them, but the orthodontist wanted to wait and give five more baby teeth a chance to fall out.

Well, the time finally came and today she got them on.

Across the street from our orthodontist is an ice cream place.  We stopped to get her a milkshake because...uh, hello?  Why wouldn't we?

We decided to channel our inner Marcia Brady.  The episode where Marcia gets her braces on is one of my all time favorites.  We decided to have spaghetti for dinner (like Marcia).

For dessert, we had ice cream and watched that special episode called Brace Yourself.

By the end of the day Mary didn't feel "ugly, ugly, ugly, didn't hate Alan Anthony, and could go on being the most groovy girl in her school."

Guest Post by Matthew

Matthew acquired a little journal.  This little gem was his first entry.

 These two have become best buddies.  The oldest and youngest.  

And it warms my heart, I must say.
