On Wednesday morning Paige had her braces put on. She chose a colorful ensemble of brackets to get her thru this heavy metal time of life. After 5 days I finally got a little smile from her and took her picture.
To lessen the pain her orthodontists gives the kids a brand new IPod Nano the day they get their braces. That was the highlight of the experience. So she came home with a new IPod, I reminded her that Dr. Mardaga didn't exactly "give" her that IPod. Daddy and Mommy paid for that little sucker.
It was a rough few days for her as she got use to them. She also has an expander across the roof of her mouth. I have the privilege of turning it once a day for six weeks.
In 24-30 months we shall see the results of all this pain and suffering.
