that's about the size of it

I had a talk with my 12 year old nephew about braces. About a year ago it looked like he would need them and now his teeth are fine. He said his dentist says he has perfect and he does indeed. It was funny as he jeered him mom for having big teeth, which she does...

He was curious about the braces process and whether it hurt or not, so I filled him in on the whole kit and caboodle. He listened intently asking questions as things did not make sense. He wanted to know how do they get the brackets off, which is a fair question indeed. He also spoke of some of the kids at his school in braces and others who needed braces. He was somewhat critical as kids are at his age.

He was stunned that I'd have them for another 18 months and wondered why it was taking so long to get done.

Well, that was about it for food for the rest of the day apart from a late night snack of carrot pudding. I then brushed without issues and went to bed.
