well I got the top braces put on yesterday.......my kids are getting a real kick out of it!!! It wasn't as bad as I thought.....and I won't get the bottoms on til' december...it just feels like I have something on my teeth ( I guess I do) but it just feels weird, Tonee' told me after awhile you won't even feel them...plus I had to get spacers in the back...so that feels like you have something stuck between your teeth ( I guess I do) but no awful pain, but the dentist said he keeps them loose the first month to let you get used to having them on your teeth...so I think he was letting me know that next month when the tighten them....I am gonna be hurtin'... going croppin' tonight....looking forward to that....didn't exercise yesterday...so really need to walk today......Sommers parent teacher conf. went as I thought...she's doing awesome in all her classes....so I am very proud of her...and speaking of proud...Tonee' got 15 out of 15 on her last quiz...she seems to really love the pharmacy tech classes....which I am thrilled.!! So I guess I am a proud mom today....Tomorrow..could be total different story!! ha,ha!!
