Braces!!

It is time!
Patrick is now 13 and it is time for braces. I don't know a single kid who wants braces...

but to get that beautiful smile on they go. He looks thrilled right?!?

Give us a pre-smile kiddo!
Now you can see the need for the metal mouth. I think he is Dracula!

Off to the Orthodontist we go. Patrick was not thrilled that I took the camera but he should know by now that Mom brings the camera to all life altering events and he has just got to get used to it!

They put this thing in his mouth called a cheek stretcher so that his teeth stay dry while they put on the brackets. It is too funny to see him! He even posed for me.

Everything went smoothly and now he is getting over the pain of having metal in his mouth rubbing on his cheeks he is one handsome dude!
