I know for the most part,
no one really cares about our dental expenses other than Ryan and I,
but please bear with me here while I chronicle our life.
So...the result of yesterday's ortho consults for Austin and Preston are as follows:
Next week begins the journey down the road of cash flow out the window.
Braces aren't cheap, my friends.
In fact, they're a pretty little penny.
Austin and Preston are scheduled to go in on Tuesday for impressions, x-rays, and to have the little spacers put in to make way for the brackets. The next week will bring with it, the actual braces. Now, along with braces, Austin needs a bite plate and Preston needs an expander to widen his jaws a little...sounds painful, but the end result will be worth it.
Am I really old enough to have children in braces?
They were running around playing tag and calling me "Mommy"
just yesterday...at least it feels like yesterday.
Austin will be in high school in one year. One year, friends. How did this happen so fast?
I was watching Sara's video of sweet little Hudson yesterday...watching him toddle around, playing with blocks, learning to feed himself, singing himself to sleep in his crib, and the sense of loss hit me like a ton of bricks. Now, I'm not saying I don't enjoy the stage we're at because believe me, it does have its perks...major perks...but it's the
realization that those days really are gone.
Done. Over with. Foreva.
Okay, enough of that.
Let's hear it for straight teeth!
Happy hump day!!
