I’m trying to post less personal stuff for those interested in *baking* (Rock on!), but today’s an exciting day for Fuzz. She’s getting her tongue guard out! A little over a year ago on a day I made vegan chocolate cupcakes, I talked about how hard it was for her emotionally and how she was doing her best to deal with it.
A lot can happen in a year. Her open bite, which was caused by her habit of thrusting her tongue against her front teeth when she spoke, is completely gone. And over the course of a year she became so comfortable with the tongue guard that she says it feels like part of her body and wants to keep it by her bedside forever.
So kids — if you happen to be getting tongue guard, it’s not so bad.
Today Fuzz gets fitted for a retainer, and then we are going to the grocery store to buy a cartload of popcorn.
