Moms of NT girls ages 4 or 5 or so....lol
So, I went to pick up Donovan at school this morning and one of the girls in his class began asking me a barage of questions.
Do you work?
How come you have braces on your teeth? (I have adult orthodontics to correct a bite issue, which I explained to her)
What is your bite?
LOL- I had to explain that too.
How did they put them on?
I explained that as well.
Do they hurt?
I told her "no", even though they are sore after my monthly tune up. I didn't want to scare her in case she ever has to have them. :-)
How do they put them on?
I explained the dentist uses special cement to adhere the brackets to your teeth and then they slide the wire through.
How do they take them off?
I looked at her and told her I had NO IDEA, but when I did get them taken off, she would be the FIRST person I told all about it.
LOL- too cute!!!
Then the teacher came over and made her go to story time and apologized. The teacher has 4 grown children, 2 boys, 2 girls and she told me with her girls after awhile she had to put her hand up and say, "That's it! No more questions!" LOL!
I'm just not USED to it. I know girls probably ask more questions than boys anyway, but even as verbal as I was at age 4/5, I was too shy to ask another adult so many questions.
I got my braces on my teeth LAST July. Just this past March, my son noticed them and asked me what they were. I told him they were braces. He asked if he got to have braces. I told him maybe, maybe not. And that was the end of that conversation. HA HA HA HA!
I know a lot of it has to do with NT vs ASD and some of it has to do with girls vs boys and I could tell their teacher didn't want the little girl to annoy me, but it was quite the opposite. I found it refrshing and amusing.
Any of you moms with more than one child have little NT girl chatterboxes like out there?
If so, give them a big hug and a kiss!!! XO
