Nick....last day with braces!!!

Yesterday was Nick's last day with braces. I took him to the ortho at 8 am and a little after 9 am I picked him up.


Nick with braces off!!!!

He took good care of them and they're white and straight and beautiful. The ortho gave him lots of food that would be out of the question to eat with braces...taffy, popcorn, cracker jacks. lol He was so excited to eat without them. F-r--e-e-d--o-m.

Happymama said...

Nice teeth, Nick. What was the first thing you ate???

Susan said...

He looks great! I would LOVE to get braces, but I'm old and have no money! LOL

Lisa said...

Kristi, lol, taffy! (crazy ortho)

Susan Same here!

My new icon matched my new colour scheme at my blog, lol.

I had such braces too, when I was at his age. And I was really happy when I could take it off. :o)

Kelleigh said...

What a great smile! Must be a relief to have them off though!

Shereen said...

I had braces not too long ago, a little less than two years ago. It felt so good to have them off. He must be on cloud 9. lol I remember just wanting to be able to give my beloved a big "normal" kiss. lol His teeth look great. Tell him not to forget to wear his retainer. I know so many people who wore braces, and they stopped wearing the retainer, and they look as if they never had had braces. ;0(

Lisa said...

Sarah. lol I love the colors.

Hulda, he said it was weird to wake up and having nothing pushing on his teeth. :) weird, in a good way.

Kelleigh yes and a relief that the teeth are still healthy. I was worried but he was really good about cleaning them well.

Shereen I had no idea! I will be sure to stress the importance of wearing the retainer. They made the impression the day he got the braces off but he doesn't have it yet.

Meow said...

What a beautiful smile. I bet that was worth seeing, after all the money it cost for the braces !!
Hope your weekend was great.
Take care, Meow

My daughter who's seven has just gotten her permanent front teeth and it looks like she *may* need braces in a few years. We'll see!

And one of my good friends, who is a mom and 32, recently just got her adult braces off- and she looks great, too!

Bet your son feels great! :)

Congrats Nick ~ lovely smile :)

Amy said...

I remember that happy day! I think I bought three packages of gum :) Congratulations!

Hulda said...

I hope you are back soon, Lisa!

Hulda said...

I just had to write a comment again, I hope you are all right. I am visiting your blog every day, to see if you are back again. :)

Lisa said...

I'm back. I was without the internet for 2 whole days...I feel like I should be on "Survivor" or something. lol I missed everyone.

Thanks for checking on me Hulda..it feels good to be missed! I'll be back on later tonight. I have to let the rest of the family catch up on their email and stuff.

I just came to check up on you, I thought maybe my blogline thing for you wasn't working properly because I hadn't seen a post from you. I got a little worried. I'm happy to see that it was just an internet problem and nothing more serious. Did Nick get his retainers yet? If I go 2 days without wearing mine at night, my teeth will have already shifted. I can tell because my teeth hurt when I put them on. I had to wear mine 24 hours a day for the first year, and now I only wear mine at night. Glad to see you are okay.

Lisa said...

Shereen, thank you so much!

All of you are so wonderful and it's really nice coming back to so many nice comments supporting Nick!

Shereen, We just got his retainer today and I've told him several times to remember what you said..."that's why Shereen said.....wear your retainer." lol The orthodontist should thank you. :)

Mrs Blythe said...

Yeyyy For Lisa. I was checking Groggy Froggy like some kind of religion! I even prayed for you in case something was wrong. Missed ya girl! :o) Don't let it break again or I'm on the next flight out!

Lisa said...

lol Sarah. I'm sorry I worried ya...but being on the next flight out is not a very good threat. ;)
