So far, I've been thanking my lucky stars that Keith inherited his father's teeth. They're straight, spaced evenly, look as though they won't need braces. Having had braces myself for 5 years (and 3 different orthodontists!), I am on cloud nine that we might avoid them for at least one of our children. However, Keith is a different story. I guess some kid on his bus has braces, and Keith thinks they are the coolest thing ever. So cool, in fact, that when I said nope, sorry, you can't have braces for your birthday, he went and made his own.
