Today was a big day for Kendra – she got braces. We got up early and went to our usual “girl-time breakfast” and since we had to go to town to get to the orthodontist, we got to go to Ugly Mug, one of our favorite coffee shops. She got a huge cinnamon roll.
She was a little nervous about getting braces. She went up to Aunt Nickie’s house last night to ask her all of her braces-related questions since Nick-Nick had braces when she was younger. When we got to the orthodontist’s parking lot, we prayed together and took a final picture of her pre-braces teeth.
She was so grown up throughout the whole process. I could tell that some parts of it were uncomfortable for her, but the only indication of her pain was the tensing of her little feet in that big chair. She did such a great job! And she looks absolutely adorable.
She talked me into getting her a milkshake since she was so good. We ran through the Chick-fil-A drive-thru on the way to school.
What a beautiful smile she has!
