Brace Face

It was a big day for my littlest guy.
 For some reason, he's been begging me to start his braces. I even required him to complete a chart of 30 straight days of brushing to prove to me he was serious about this whole orthodontia business. When he proudly presented me with the chart (31 days after I request it), I made the first appointment.

He eagerly walked back to the chair to be fitted first for an expander then with his full set of braces.
 And now he looks older and ready for junior high, right?
His transition to braces has been harder than my other kids'. I think it's the combination with the expander, but he's been pretty miserable.

Drowning his misery in ice cream, Slurpees, and Madras Lentils from Costco.

Two days down, two years to go.
