Le geek c'est chique

When we were  young, kids weren't fond of wearing braces. They were embarrassed and afraid to smile. That's a shame, because we could all have had beautiful dentures.

Our girls have wanted braces since they were in 6th grade. The oldest has been wearing hers for over one year now. She's doing so well, listening to the dentist and wearing the rubber bands on the braces as often as possible. She doesn't feel bad about it, because all of her peers wear braces too. They get to pick different colors, but mostly she picks black. Today she's seeing the dentist again, for another check-up. One more year to go. We hope.. And then it will be time for the youngest daughter to start wearing hers..
