Today, Zachary got spacers on his teeth. Apparently, his arch is more triangular than round, so this will round it out. Hopefully after this, he won't need braces. But he now has a mouth full of metal! My poor kid. He did a really good job while he was in the chair. They numbed him up a little, and then set to work fixing the appliance to his teeth. I forgot to bring my book, so I leafed through the Halloween issue of Martha Stewart Living while I was there. It made me really happy inside. The September issue about decorating bored me. I thought there would be more ideas, but then I found October's issue. I want it. Halloween gives me joy. It just does. It took them about 45 minutes to fix that thing to his teeth. Now, I get to tighten it every three days. I got a pretty cool looking tool to do it with, too. I can't wait for Friday! Muwahahahah! I feel bad for him, though. He can't have a lot of the candy he is going to get while trick-or-treating. No skittles, starbursts, hard caramels, etc. I am bummed for him. But I suppose I will just have to sacrifice, and eat them for him. It will be hard, but I think I can do it. They did say he could have twix and milky way, though. I will have to figure out a way to weasel those away from him, and into my bucket instead.
