Then they got to work! He had to wear this funny thing to keep his teeth dry while they cemented the brackets on:
We went to McDonald's for lunch afterward to celebrate. Everyone has asked if they hurt, but so far he's always said, "Nope, not at all!" (He has had a very little pain, but all in all it's been relatively easy. Way better than going to the dentist!) I just can't believe how grown up he looks and seems with braces in his mouth. Where has my little guy gone?! I'm so proud of how well he's done and the great attitude he's had, especially giving up hard and chewy candies with Halloween right around the corner.
Way to go, Handsome!
