Money Well Spent



A little over 17 months ago Lauren got her braces on. It was a much needed thing as you can tell by the before picture. Unfortunatley Parley and I both needed braces (gratefully we both got them), so our kids don't stand a chance. We found a great orthodontist who just completed "phase 1." She now has to wear retainers at night until all of her baby teeth come out and the permanent ones come in. Then we will start the more expensive "phase 2." Thank goodness for braces!!

I'm SOOOO thankful I had braces. James never needed them. I told him I will go into debt to get braces on the kids, if we have to. It's worth it, and life changing. Lauren looks SO old in the second picture! It's probably because she doesn't have braces. :)

I agree. seeing as I spent the money to do it again to myself. It's amazing how early they do all the stuff now. Once paige gets all her teeth in we'll start that process.

It's a beautiful transformation! I WISH we could have afforded braces in my day. I am seriously tempted to do it now. I should have another 25 years to have a smile I'm not embarassed to show
