A new disturbing but hillarious part of our daily routine


Maddie had her new pallette expander installed this week.
Her jaw isn't wide enough to fit all of her teeth in,
so it needs widened over a six-month time period.

What does this entail?
Twice a day, we have to stick a tool into the hole in the center of the expander and crank it
a notch to widen it.  It doesn't hurt, but is uncomfortable.
The biggest trouble she's having is with swallowing.
It gets in the trouble of moving her tongue and chewing.
Poor kid...
hopefully six months will go fast!
