We started out the day like this.
Nice, fresh, clean, empty teeth.
But now, we are a little more like this.
It wasn't their favorite afternoon ever, but now my two oldest sprites are the proud owners of a couple of sets of braces.
They are both slurring words to varying degrees and getting used to a mouth full of metal. There is a bit of inadvertent drooling going on and some struggling with chewing with impediments but they have had a good attitude about it all so far. I'm actually pretty proud of the way they have managed things. One was more nervous than the other and one is more self-conscious about his or her appearance but they both did great.
And now their faces have railroad tracks.
Poor babies. No one loves they day they get braces.
