Braces for me

Ok, well I did take pictures of me and my braces but I look awful so I guess I will just tell you about them.
I finally did it. I had braces put on this week on my teeth. I was very nervous but I have always wanted straight teeth. Two of my kids have had braces and Angela still has hers on. I went in on Wednesday morning and they put them on. It took about an hour. It wasn't too bad until I decided to try to eat something. I was a little nauseated when I got home so I just had chicken noodle soup for lunch.
It is now Friday and it hasn't been too bad but they are definitely pretty sore and I keep taking the Tylenol to help it out but I really miss food that isn't pudding or mashed potatoes. Everyone keeps saying it will be worth it and that I will never regret it. I hope so. Fourteen to Sixteen months sounds like a very long time. I just hope I can actually bite down on something yummy in the next four weeks. This will get real old real fast. I think if I have too much ice cream I could put on more weight than I really want to. The only good thing right now is that people say it makes me look like a teenager. Is that good?
What yummy food can I eat today??? I will probably just starve.

Nooooooo, come on! I wanna see your sparkling mouth!!! That is SO awesome that you did that! I had mine on for 3 years and it BITES! I still have scars on the inside of my cheeks where it rubbed raw but it's priceless for a straight smile, unlike the snaggle mouth I had before! :) CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!

My daughter just had braces put on this week!

Just make sure that once you get them off you wear your retainer or they might go back to crooked again!!! Fun stuff. I guess you can't eat nuts for about 2 years. :)

I really think you should post some pictures girl! :) Congratulations! I'm sure that you won't be sore after a few more days and then you will be back to eating all the yummy food you want. You will look great!

Ugh. I had my braces put on in 7th grade, the day before Thanksgiving. All I could eat that year was the mashed potatoes. But they are definitely worth it! I'm so excited for you!

I didn't think you looked awful when I saw you today. The yogurt I was sampling today was pretty good, and only 80 calories in a 6 oz yogurt...

That reminds me of when Cali got braces when we lived in Cedar. Finding something to eat was a challenge for her too.
