This is what I did this week

That beautiful, straight smile is what $1,901, and 8 months worth of trips to the orthodontist, buys you these days. Three of those trips were this week; one on Tuesday and two on Wednesday. We are now the proud owners of a semi-permanent retainer and a wire across the back of his front four teeth to keep them in place.

Anyone taking any bets on how long it will be before one or both of those gets broken?

The BoyChild had popcorn this morning right after they took off his braces. Of all the things he couldn’t have because of his braces, that was what he missed the most.

This was Phase I of the work. I shudder to think what Phase II is going to cost in terms of time, money and tears. Phase II they are going to pull his jaw forward so his teeth meet properly in the back.

Phase II, however, will wait until the BoyChild is a little older and has lost all his baby teeth. Which, at the rate he is going, doesn’t seem like it is ever going to happen.
