Lost Retainer – “I Swear I Had It!”
One down, and I assume several to go.
My daughter, Emma, just got her retainer after getting her braces off.
That was a couple of weeks ago. We have already lost a retainer. We noticed it last night, right before bed. We turned the house upside down trying to find it with no luck.
I remember when I had mine, and going through the garbage several times to find it.
She SWEARS she had it on when she came home from school. I have my doubts. My house is pretty organized (right now), we went through the garbage, seat cushions, etc., and no retainer!
I’ve decided that I will pay for the new one. She gets one lost one on my tab, then it’s her responsibility to pay for it. She’s a good kid, and usually keeps track of her stuff.
Do you have any good tricks for keeping track of a retainer?
