On the Eve of Braces!

Filed under: Uncategorized — by onlyonedayliketoday @ 8:44 pm

Here is Valerie on the “Eve of Braces”.  Tomorrow morning we go to the orthodontist to begin helping him make his Beamer payments:(  

Before braces. . .

Actually, she is really in need of some genuine help.  It is more than just cosmetic for her.  She has teeth growing out of places they shouldn’t be, and teeth not able to grow at all because they are “impacted”:(

So, in honor of her final day of her being able to eat anything chewy for three years, we decided to melt some caramels for an ice-cream topping!  


“After” pictures to follow soon!



  1. Well Valerie, I don’t know how braces could make you any more beautiful than you already are, but it sounds like it should help with your chewing abilities in the future. Bet that carmel topping was really good!!! Three years sounds like a long time, but it will pass before you know it!!! Love, Meemom

  2. Hi Miss Valerie,
    When I had my braces on I had lots of Dairy Queen malted milk shakes. Oh boy they were good.
    My dentist would ask me when I visited him every other week, How are you?” I would always answer pretty good and he would ask me what’s pretty and good about you?
    After many times of this greeting and answer I swore I would never say pretty good again. Then two weeks leter he would ask again and I would forget not to say pretty good until I had pr out of my mouth then it was too late.
    To this day anytime I hear pretty good I remember the dentist and think What is pretty and good about you?
    Sure do love you,
