What a transformation! Here is Boo in 1st grade. Lots of crooked teeth, and big gaps. She got her braces on last February. Each visit she got to pick what colors the brackets (?) were, and it was always a fun surprise to see what she chose.
Today was the great removal day! She was pretty excited.
The orthodontist Dr. Pickard, is in our Stake Presidency. Each patient who gets their braces removed, gets this wonderful candy "cake", with all the sticky things they weren't technically supposed to be eating while wearing braces. (uh-hum)
The whole office comes in and sings this little song to the tune of "The Ants go Marching"
"You got your braces off today, hoo rah! hoo rah!
You got your braces off today, hoo rah! Hoo rah!
You got your braces off today, so now it's time to celebrate,
cause you got your braces off...off...off!"
|The long-awaited Candy "cake"!|
