A Big Day for Anna

Today was almost like Christmas for Anna.  It was a day she had been anticipating for quite some time.  Her braces came off!

Here is Anna before:


And here she is after:



Both of my kids were teased about their teeth.  I am thankful that we are able to afford braces for them.

Anna doesn't like to see pictures of herself "before".  All she can see is her teeth.  I think there are some painful memories tied up in that for her.  It's too bad, because I have so many adorable pictures of her.  I hope some day she will be able to look at the pictures of her young years and remember the happy times.  I am sure pictures going forward will be much happier for her.

What a lovely girl.
My daughter had braces too, and it was wonderful when they finally came off!

Hello from wet and wild Northern Ireland! I shall be penning you a little letter this weekend, but wanted to send virtual greetings first x Our younglings have to be so brave so often. Well done to this one for her perseverance- and to mum! I see that you are in the process of house-moving- we moved nearly seven months ago, and have still some naughty boxes lurking in corners...
