Lookin' Good

31 months from start to finish. It was supposed to be only 24 months, but we have a very meticulous orthodontist.

One of Dr. Bourne's favorite sayings is "retainers are forever". Meaning you are supposed to wear them for the rest of your life? He has worn his for something like 11 or 12 years. Probably why he became an orthodontist.

We go back on Thursday to get his retainers. I only hope I don't have to go dumpster diving like I had to do THREE times for Danny's retainer. Of course, Danny was only 10 when he had his retainers, since Alex is 17 surely he could do all the dumpster diving himself.

Looking forward to seeing his smile more often.

All bets are off--that boy looks dateable, seriously!

My orthodontist sent me home with a Snickers bar and a pack of gum--did Alex get anything besides the balloons?

Our Orthodontist gives out quite a haul:

Jerky, gum, Butterfingers, popcorn, fruit leather, gummy fruit, Nestle Crunch Bar, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.

Next stop - the dentist!
