After 3 long years, Kendall finally got her braces off on Wednesday. I think she was most excited about eating popcorn again and being able to floss and brush her teeth without metal obstacles.
We are so proud of the way she has handled this long process. She has made sacrafices and complained very little. She's handled the responsibility well (very few extra trips to the orthodontist due to wires breaking) and has been extremely patient.
Yesterday she had her first bowl of popcorn in 3 years and I know she is looking forward to having movie popcorn (her favorite again.) She's chewing gum and blowing bubbles and as you can see in the photo below, smiling naturally with her beautiful glow again.
Congratulations Kendall, you have a gorgeous smile!
