They're always throwing you for loop.
Tomorrow DQ gets part of her braces off, all of them will be off in 2 weeks.
She's been wearing them for about 4 years.
Apparently she's bonded with them.
I thought she would be thrilled.
Considering she has a double whammy of glasses and braces at an age where a pimple could destroy your self-esteem!
She doesn't want them off.
She wants them on forever.
Phase one of her braces stint is over. It's time.
But, when you think about it, if there's a phase one...it's usually followed by phase two.
Well, that is $3700 more dollars. We paid $3700 for the first phase, 4 years worth. Now they want to begin and end phase two over the course of one year. We said no.
We don't have orthodontic or dental insurance so the only other option is to remove the braces until we decide phase 2 will begin.
If it does at all.
We may look at her teeth and say, "fabulous, you can live with that!" I mean it's leaps and bounds better than when we started. She only has a few teeth that have yet to be bracketed due to just having lost her last of her babies last year.
Not to mention, My Boy.
He's next in line for the tin grin.
I guess neither parent brought the naturally straight tooth gene.
Our orthodontist isn't happy with us, apparently she isn't aware of the state of the economy.
She doesn't want to give us a retainer either, saying it only comes at the end of all phases of braces.
I'll have to get the "heavy" in there to talk to her.
Hubby, that means YOU.
So be ready, honey!
