The Friday Five

This was a big week for The Eldest. She got her braces off. Five things I remember about getting my braces off.

1. My teeth felt so smooth.

2.  I could finally eat forbidden foods: corn on the cob, pretzels, popcorn, carmels

3. Didn't have to carry a blob of beeswax around in case a wire sprung loose.

4. Didn't have to discreetly try to remove or replace tiny elastics

5. Could smile for pictures without blinding the photographer. I got my braces on a week before high school senior class pictures were taken. Got the braces taken off during my junior year in college.

Did you or do you have braces?


  1. I never had braces--although my dental hygenist always asks me if I did because they're pretty darn straight. :-)

  2. Yay for the Eldest! When Son2 got his off I bought him a bucket of bubble gum!

  3. Robin, I for her a bag of Gummy Bears

  4. and in English that would say: Robin, I got her a bag of Gummy Bears
