Braces


My daughter has a beautiful smile. She is the most beautiful girl, even with braces. She has this crazy spring thing that sticks out. She was hoping that today she would get to lose the spring, but unfortunately she had to keep it.

She was not a happy girl about it! She made some comment, and I thought she just had her normal teenage attitude. Then she made the comment again, and I looked at her and asked her what her real problem was. I asked if the spring was hurting her teeth. She said “no” and started crying because some boy was making fun of her! Jerk! I will tell you, I wanted to go to the school, grab that little jerk by the collar and smack him. But I can’t…

I hate having issues that I can’t solve. I hate when someone hurts my daughter. That kid is lucky I couldn’t put the smack down on him. Look are pretty my girl is with braces!!

That's a MOM thing! Getchu mouth offa my angel!! She is beautiful and the kid who is making fun of her probably has a crush on her...wouldn't be surprised. I hated being a teen. But I hated worse raising them...I hurt for my kids more than they did..

As Christians we need to take a biblical approach to things like the creep teasing your daughter -- Psalm 58:6 comes to mind for the young gentleman.

Oh. You haven't memorized that reference?

It starts, "Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth; break out the great teeth of the young lion, O Lord"

Just thought I'd be helpful.
