As his Mom I want him to be proud. He's a great kid and super cute. The orthodontist gave us a few options.
- Wait for his teeth to fall out naturally. The orthodontist told us if this does not happen naturally in 6 months to work with a pediatric dentist and get them pulled. He should have all his teeth in a year and a half.
- Two rounds of braces. This would have poor Joe in braces for 5 years. Costing us a pretty price of $8000.
Now I'm regretting in the biggest way quitting AT&T. Feeling very selfish pursuing my own dreams. My kids need. I'm sure braces on kid #3 isn't the last of our massive costs of raising kids. Just the first step. Yikes!
My little shop will have to wait. Not closed just be moved down in priority. I may have to go to school at night to improve my appeal to employers. As my skills are very telephone related. Pray for a Pell Grant. I need another job! Full-time so my kid can grow up confidant and pain free. Now would be great!
