We're paying $6000 for what??
Lovely, I know! Yes, after a more than a year of braces, this is what Molly looks like!
Okay, maybe not quite. She showed me this neat little trick she can do with her "appliances" and it makes her, oh, so attractive.
For those that are wondering, those metal pieces holding back her mouth are part of something called a MARA, which is just another word for "let's see how much metal we can cram into young peoples' mouths, to cause pain and suffering and, oh yeah, to push their lower jaw forward." The good news in all of this is that the MARA is coming off next month. YAY! Only to be replaced by bands on all her lower teeth.
Hang in there, Molly, it WILL all be worth it :-)
