Braces 101

I LOVE mine but I must say that they leave a whole LOT of info out of having braces and what is entailed.  Anyway...I'm not complaining you have to just know that.  However it has made me feel like a super weenie.  Turns out I'm a super weenie!


A few things that I have learned. 

1.) It hurts like the dickens getting your tongue stuck in the braces!!! Had to have Frank help me get my tongue un-stuck.  That one...yeah you know already, but it really did hurt. 

2.) To floss my teeth with braces I have to be a contortionist.  I have laughed SO many times at myself. Watching myself floss my teeth...yeah I could be a runner up in America's Funniest Home Videos...really I could!

3.) When you get bigger hurts.  3+ years to go!  GO BABY! Also, your teeth move...which aren't such a big deal unless your me.  Holy cow! The tooth sensitivity will drop you to your knees!!! WOW! So I get to take a week  off from wearing my bands (4 of them) and I'm to invest in the toothpaste called Sensodine.  Yup! I was also told that since I'm older my teeth are more sensitive. I'M OLD! BHAHAHAHA!

Well so far that's my two bits of having braces for 4 months!  A whole lot of nothing!



  1. LOL you left out one you made me laugh :) God bless you!

  2. You are going to love your smile when it's done!

So on March 20Th at 3:42 AM, my baby turned 8 this year!!! I just can not believe this! Where has the time gone? Absolutely blows my mind!

Here is Ian...he's about 4-6 months old. I still get this look...what!?!Here is my son 8 years later! SOB! Time for birthday spankings from daddy! Quite fun!
Dru joined in the fun...they really do enjoy it when daddy holds the big brother down, easy target!
Lee really going for it...check his stance out!Even Eli got in on the fun...he didn't spank nearly as hard as the other brothers...of course he wasn't quite sure what was going on anyway...he just wanted to do it too!Ian and his birthday ice cream cake! He lives for ice cream cake! What a handsome fella!
He had a good day and got a gift he's been waiting for since he saw it and Grandpa Lee and Grandma Paulson's house on Christmas day....thank goodness they came through and got it for him! He got some money and some great outdoor games and items! He had a great day! I l…

Someone is FINALLY 4!!!

A good morning from Big brother Lee on Eli's birthday!  Mighty is so excited that something is going on!! Whatever it is its worth getting up for!
 My birthday boy!  Has 4 years really gone by so quickly!?!  This year his birthday was the day before Thanksgiving...I am NOT cooking a birthday dinner tonight!  We will be going to Pizza Hut and having a party there...Eli is SO excited and is so happy that his day is finally here!!  It's been a long year of everyone else having their birthdays and not him.
 Birthday boy, Mighty and Mom...a good picture I think
 This is my favorite picture of the day!
 Birthday spankings!!  Thank goodness it is only 4 and a pinch to grow an inch!
Happy birthday Sparky!

Goose Egg is what I did for fun on Friday!  Had a blast...however I'm not sure I'll do it again.
That is my goose egg...jealous?  Yeah I knew you would be.  Want to know how to get one?  Well I'll tell you how to get one.  Help your husband load the truck up for a dump run and then get a bungee or two and help strap down said garbage.  While working on strapping things down, hold one end of the bungee while said husband works to get the other side down.  Make sure it is either hooked or it slips out of your hand, that way it can lung back at you.  THAT is how you get a goose egg like mine!  This picture was pretty much right after it happened...Frank took a picture...I thought I was bleeding profusely from my head, however that was just my head swelling.  Gorgeous!!!
Here I am later than night after an hour or so of icing it.  I had a pretty good headache going and way tender!
Now you see by Sunday night the pretty colors of the rainbow are making their appearance.  It&…
