We don't want to baby our kids but we are interested in saving them from unnecessary pain. And what the hell, we didn't need that $3,000 anyway.
Today was the big day and E was on the verge of tears. Understandable considering his last major dental work was done with yankers. But the promise of a slurpee and assurances from his sister, a braces vet, calmed him enough to go willingly.
A few painless blue braces later and he is on the road to straight teeth! Only years and thousands more dollars to go.
