Yes, That is My Son with Braces!!!

Can you believe it...... my little 8 year old is sporting a mouthful of metal. And, he is happy about it. He thinks they are very cool and they apparently do not hurt at all. That is a far cry from what I felt when I had them 20 years ago.

For those of you that think he is awfully young, this is being done in large part because of his jaw. Unfortunately, Brayden inherited from both of us a very bad jaw structure so in order to avoid the surgery John had and I should have had, we are starting early. He will probably end up having the braces put back on as a teenager in Phase 2. Ah, the joys of raising children.....
