I am seeing from my site meter that people are visiting my blog, only to find that I have not updated since their last visit. This post is to remedy this (for the time being).
So. Today I took Julia to have her braces put on. In order to understand the next bit of my post , you must be familiar with this:
Beyonce/Justin Timberlake SNL Skit
So. Julia is a little upset about how her speech is affected by her new braces. She had to have some barriers put on her back teeth to prevent her mouth from closing all the way, because her top teeth could knock the brackets off her bottom teeth without them.
So, she is talking with a little bit of a lisp, until she gets used to it.
On the way from the orthondontist, I asked her to say for me, "We're the dancers."
She said it.
It sounded just like Justin Timberlake in the skit.
We cracked up.
Then, while we were still laughing, I asked her to say, "Dance biscuits."
We cracked up again.
This calmed her down, and boosted her confidence to go to school with her new braces. If any stupid jerkbag made fun of her or laughed at her, at least she could say that she had laughed at it first.
Social crisis averted.
I am so fortunate to have such a cool daughter.
