It's All In The Smiles

My parents and I never went to sleep after her round of chemo Monday afternoon, we loaded down the rental and took off in the storm late that night. We drove non stop through our 10 hour trip which had us back home around 10:00am Tuesday morning. I instantly had to get back in the car and drive to see my son as he was getting braces for the very first time. I spent the next few hours sitting in his orthodontists office reflecting on what good news my parents and I were told previous hours before. It still doesn’t feel real, after all the hard times we have gone through. To hear my mom is now in REMISSION.

It’s not that I’m ungrateful by any means of life but it just doesn’t feel real, after hearing bad news for so long and trying to face the fact cancer was in my mom. I’m still so shocked. How on earth do you thank Jesus for a miracle in your life. Not once but twice. First with my son and now with my mother. I’m surely blessed.
I promise when the words come to me, I’m going to write the best blog on remission I know how to write and I can’t wait to share it with all of you.

In the meantime, I want to share my son on the blog tonight. Other than cancer I want to start sharing my personal life on the blog. I can’t wait for 2016 to roll around, I promise I won’t miss you 2015.

Now I can only imagine how beautiful his smile is going to be as he gets older. He is going to have so much in his life to smile about: here is a list of things he is already smiling about now.

First off, if you guys have had braces or know any tricks and tips that would help us first timers out, I would love to read your comments below

  1. His nanny is cancer free
  2. His love for animals
  3. Singing … This kiddo loves to sing and will be trying out for choir this coming up year
  4. chocolate chip cookies
  5. His nannys meat loaf
  6. Sports of any kind
  7. summertime
  8. Money
  9. Will Ferrell and Adam Sandler
  10. Jesus – of course this is number one above all

Cameron had a serious under bite and one of his teeth was sticking really far back or should I say far out. I could tell he was really starting to have a complex about this. I’m so happy he will not have to have braces in his jr high and high school days and we are taking care of this matter now. I believe I child should never have to hide behind their smiles.



He was a little nervous


He picked midnight glow



At first he had a choice of clear or metal but unfortunately his teeth were so badly uneven on the top that he had no choice but to go with metal.



There’s that smile, I know he has!
