Come link up with the Chief over at Hiding from the Kids! Hurry up….she has threatened people with the MeMe Mafia or somthing like that!!
Go!! What are you waiting for?????
So, I’ve noticed that the tween doesn’t always wear her retainer. Yeah, the one that is supposed to keep her pretty teeth in line after spending a few thousand dollars on expanders, braces and such. I have been reminding her every time I notice. A few weeks ago I asked her where it was. She said…
“I lost it.”
I said, “huh??”
What I meant to say is>>>>
“Holy fucking monkey balls!! Are you kidding me?? YOU, my sweet child, need to find it and I mean NOW!! Check your book bag!! Check under your bed!! Check in your laundry basket!! Check Check Check everywhere!! Because, my darling first born, if you do not find that green sparkly molded piece of shit plastic I am going to make a new one for you myself and it ain’t gonna be pretty and it certainly won’t be painless!! Do you understand????”
The retainer has since been found in her laundry. Unfortunately, it has been out of her mouth long enough for her teeth to have shifted. Someone said to have her force it in…yes, it will hurt, but it SHOULD HURT.
It’s not like I can say we will just forget about it and not go back to the orthodontist because she still has an appliance on her bottom teeth!! Yep…so there will be no getting out of this one, and she is sooooo not happy.
What else can I say? I do know that I will not be paying for another one. And she can look her orthodontist in the eye and admit that she didn’t do as she was instructed.
I think this will be one of the first times she is going to have to take full responsibility for her actions. Up to this point, she has squeaked by……
Ohhhh….it’s hell growing up, isn’t it??
