Wordless Wednesday Link Up: Braces..Before and After


By on 5/12/2015 11:39:00 AM

While I would love to say that my little girls will never grow up....life keeps reminding me that they are growing up each and every day.  My middle one just hit her first true middle school milestone....it is time for braces in our little corner of the world!  I thought I would share her Braces:  Before and After photos from a few weeks ago as this week's Wordless Wednesday link up!

Last Selfie without Braces....For 2 1/2 years....

 She posted this photo and caption to her Instagram account the morning of her orthodontist appointment.

This photo was followed by some nervous tears, doubts, and worries....for child and parents alike!

And Now We Have Braces.... 


Her dad asked her to send him a picture as we left the orthodontist's office.  This is her first official photo with braces!  She opted for pink and teal colors....and is anxiously awaiting a change in a few more weeks! 

We are nearing the end of her first month with braces and we are actually faring quite well. Nothing broken, no real issues--and it helps immensely that so many of her classmates have gotten their new braces this month as well!  Only one of her classmates made an attempt at teasing....but, Bracey Macy was the best he could come up with and Macy's dad had already told her to expect that one!  (Boys!)

As I sit here typing this...I realize that she will probably be half finished with her braces around the time her little sister gets hers...then we'll have back to back proms...and graduations.....and college adventures to look forward to! The growing up game is officially on now, isn't it?

    1. Braces were new for us. I didn't have them--but, should have--and my husband didn't need them...It's been a learning experience!

  6. Braces seem to be the norm these days. Both my eldest two have braces currently and luckily they haven't experienced any teasing, probably because all their friends have braces too!

    1. It does seem to be the norm for most of her friends too. Her only goal is to be finished with braces before high school! :)
