After looking at the molds of Caroline's teeth and saying, "Whoa, buddy, we've got BIG issues here!!" the orthodontist decided to start with an expander, for which he had to fit her today. So no braces yet. But she's cracking me up because he put two tiny spacers in her top back teeth and she's been moaning about it and demanding Motrin all day.
Boy, sister, buckle up. If this hurts, you're in for a world of pain when I start cranking that expander. Eat now, because life as you know it is going to really stink in about a week!
