Almost two weeks ago, Hunter had his two teeth pulled. It created a HUGE gap, since he had also lost two other teeth right next to the pulled teeth.
He says eating hasn’t been to bad, he just has to be careful. Poor kid, he is already so skinny. He doesn’t need anything to stop the eating.
Friday, he gets his Spacers. The Orthodontists says these don’t hurt, but do they?? A mom knows these things, and the Ortho doesn’t always know what it feels like.
So, after spacers we get the braces…oh joy.
Next Friday morning Hunter and I will be off to get his braces put on, and he will then spend the rest of the day low key with his Dad. He’ll be sore, and not want to eat anything hard at all.
I must say that this is foreign soil to me. I never had braces, only a retainer when I was little. Big Sis had braces, so will be leaning on her for advise. Hunter’s Step-Sister also did, so he knows some of what is coming.
Any good food ideas for Hunter? Something soft with lots of fat and protein…the kids is a twig! I will stock up on yogurt and jello (he would live on that if we let him) but he needs more.
