He had to get some baby teeth out, to make room for big teeth to come in. He had a space maintainer.
This Thursday he got braces.
I had braces, for too long really. I just know because my roots are small. They say if your roots are small you've had them for too long.
I remember the pain. Isaak hasn't complained too much.
He did complain when a ball from Goalball hit his mouth. The poor boy started bleeding. For a moment I thought we'd need to go back to the Orthodontist, but he was ok.
He sure looks like a pre teen with them in!
In case you're wondering he lives in this coat. He has a closest full of shirts, and covers them all up with this coat. Ha!
He is still eating soft food for the most part. I'm sick of oatmeal, applesauce, smoothies, soups, yogurt and so on. I'm not even eating all those things when he eats them. I hope he gets used to them soon enough.
Here he is eating a Goodrich Malt. A few years ago he said, "Can we get those mulches?" I had trouble understanding what he was talking about. When he said, "Goodrich Mulches" I knew he meant "Malt". I still call them "Mulches". He goes right along with it! Ha!
Did you have braces when you were a kid?
