Well, I made it...a full week...and my teeth haven't fallen out. YEE HAW.
(Guess my dream was just that...a dream) So...lets recap what I've learned over the last week....
a. my lips can stretch MUCH farther than I ever expected...EVER
b. my back teeth no longer touch..therefor..no meat. bye bye bacon.
c. my oral routine...takes..FOREVER I brush..5 x's a day. WTH.
d. I spend more time with my toothbrush..than with my husband
e. my mouth..is super dry..ALL the time...why is this????
f. my tongue, now has something new to play with
g. I really, quite don't know how to smile,...big,small,all teeth,no teeth?
h. I should probably start buying stock in chap stick
i. the kids think I'm a dork (like I wasn't before, please)
j. don't eat scrambled eggs..you'll be picking them out for ever
k. a liquid diet really DOES work...5lbs as of this morning
l. i know absolutely NOTHING about taking pictures up close..NOTHING
m. i find myself staring at my teeth CONSTANTLY..why is this?
Anyway, those are just a few of the things I have learned over this last week. I'm sure there is more to come.
Thanks to mikesmile and i love my teeth for the advise on using my camera. I'm still not doing very good. Better, but not as good as some of these pics on see on here. It'll come with practice I guess.
My son had 2 baby teeth pulled yesterday. So while I was at the dentist's office I was showing off my braces to everyone and anyone who would even look my way. Even small children and elderly people.
My son informed me that next time....his dad will be taking him, cause I'm just too "weird". "Someone we know might see us"..lololololol. Paybacks a &itch, ain't it???!!!! (all those time's you screamed your head off out in public as a small child, now I'm paying you back)
Eating is getting a little better. Teeth still don't touch in the back and are just a little sensitive, so there's NO WAY I'll be eating anything tough anytime soon.
My husband won't give me any "tongue" when he kisses me...tells me I need to get a "bit" more practice (weeks) in with these things, so I'm feeling deprived in more ways than just food!!
Anyway, going to Chicago next weekend to visit with family. Hope things get good enough so that I can at least enjoy some of those fabulous Italian Restaurants. YUMMIE
Toodles for now peeps
