M2 has been looking forward to getting these.
(Notice she picked ND colors for her bracket bands. Her friend Julie got the same colors in hers yesterday.)
The reason M2 got braces is because her 12 year molars came in all wonky and she is biting into her cheeks on a daily bases. Sadly she has to get a whole mouth full of braces to fix the four teeth. She'll get the bottom ones in January. The orthodontist thinks she'll be done in 18 months. That shouldn't be too bad.
