Austin recently got his long awaited braces. Yes, I agree that it seems a bit strange for an eight-year-old to have braces. But, the genius UW orthodontist that he’s seeing seems to think it’s a great idea. Austin’s apparently got quite the under-bite and if we get on the braces early, they believe it can be corrected without having to "break his jaw" later…
He was very excited, then nervous, and now extremely excited to have his braces.
He got to go on a date with mommy before the big appointment – he’s quite the goof-ball.
