For 2&1/2 years, we got to see these lovely ladies each month. (Notice their beautiful teeth. You'd think they worked for an orthodontist or something.) They always greet us with warm smiles and friendly chit-chat. They really work as a team so well. Respect, and love for each other. Hard work and commitment to excellence in their job. We have been so blessed to have them in our comminity. Today, Sweet Baby Girl got her braces off, and so our monthly trip to their office will come to an end. We will miss them. Ladies, your dedication to your work goes way beyond your job, and into the hearts of each patient and parent. Please know that through all these years, you have made a wonderful difference in many lives and our community. This grateful mom, Thanks You. (side note, yes, that is my friend Mary from highschool that you've seen in other posts. Neat huh? I just love small town living!)
Yup, I did it. I teared up this morning when Sweet Baby Girl was having her braces off. I teared up. All over the waiting room and all. Silly...
I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because she's my baby. Maybe it's been a long 2 1/2 years and I'm glad for her... Or maybe it's the $4,500 we spent on her mouth, and what comes out of it isn't too nice since she became a teenager?! Well it looks good anyway.
I think it is because she is my Babygirl, and she is one more step closer to growing up and I don't like it all that much.
But she is and always will be our Sweet Baby Girl no matter how much she grows up.That I do like.
Hugs from Maine
