I'm not sure how we got to this point in our kids lives so quickly but sure enough we are here. Here as in at the Orthodontist. Morgan has started the process of braces, Before she could get the actual braces on she had to have a high rack put in for about 8 weeks to widen her mouth some. She has teeth coming in at all directions on top of each other and more. Poor kid. I never had braces and I have a bit of a "other people's mouth" phobia so for me to have to adjust this thing twice a day for two weeks? *ugh* The things you do as a mom. But then again I had major snot and vomit issues before kids as well and now I just clean up and move on. OK maybe a little gagging along the way.
