Braces: Round 2

We knew it was coming. We just didn't know it was coming so soon. But here we are. The boys have been seeing the Orthodontist every six months just to keep on top of things knowing full well that eventually they'll both probably need braces.

The verdict came in last week.

Zooks99 needs to have braces now.

As you can see from this before picture he will definitely benefit from some braces. He's in for about 9-12 months of no gummy vitamins, starbursts, tootsie rolls, laffy taffy, etc. Bummer dude.

It was picture day at school today. He was so excited that I let him where his Colts jersey for his pictures that he had to get matching bands: blue and silver! I'm pretty sure that Old Gold & Black will be next.

What a babe magnet!

he's such a great looking kid! love those big blue eyes.

my 8 yo just got braces in december. she's in for the same haul as your son--8-12 months with possibly another round in the early teen years, depending on what the teeth do. surprisingly, she's been doing very well with her lack of sticky and hard candy.

good luck!

Isn't it amazing that they are putting braces on 8 years olds?!?!?!

And he too might have them again later as well!

Unfortunately, you seem to have misunderstood the bet. You had me as a horse, I had you. You won, and you were my horse, thus you owe me a picture!
