Brace Face

Gavin is excited to announce that he is officially a "Brace Face". He has been very anxious to get these braces. Last month he spent a couple of days on the Orthodontist's website picking out the color of rubber bands he wanted (you can't tell, but he chose to alternate blue and green).

At church on Sunday he leaned over and whispered there were only 46 hours and 37 minutes left until he got his braces and from that point on he was giving me updates every thirty minutes - until I told him to hush up.

He'll only have to wear them for 9-12 months, just in time for Jr. High. Not bad at all, especially because he was so happy to get them in the first place. I expect that enthusiasm to last a day, at which point the pain will start to kick in!

Gavin you are a lucky boy. I had my braces on from 8th grade all the way to 11th grade. I was supposed to wear the head gear for my overbite but I didn't which is why it took so long. Lucky you! I hope you enjoy them.

Oh, if only we could all be so excited about braces . . . I had mine on for three (count them, THREE) years! Yeah, the excitement really doesn't last too long. Just until about the time you want to eat some popcorn.
