That's right, folks .... BRACES. Our 2nd went in today for spacers and for us to sign a contract saying we'll pay for the tortuous contraption going in my son's mouth. He has an under bite. In about 4 weeks, he'll be getting some kind of "W" shaped appliance on the roof of his mouth to help it grow. After a couple of months of that, he'll have to wear headgear to help pull his upper jaw out. Then around Feb or Mar of next year, he'll get the braces on. Derek and I tried to act excited about it; but as soon as we stepped in the place, we were reminded of the PAIN brought upon us as children. Goodbye sticky, ooey, gooey foods ..... hello mashed potatoes and Jello.
