We have recently been taking Griffin and Peyton to visit our orthodontist.(well mine, Josh was blessed with a perfect smile!) Did you know that you should take your child to see an orthodontist by the age of 7? Because I didn’t! The boys both had to have night guards because they grind their teeth at night. Peyton does it so bad that his teeth look like a 40 year old man’s teeth in the back. It has not been fun trying to remember to put those things in at night. Of course they don’t remember or care and my brain does not function well at night! ;) You would think the $300+ that we paid for EACH of them would remind me. Um no.

I love our dentist, but he didn’t even let us know about the teeth grinding problem! And we see him twice a year! A little annoyed about that.

The work Griffin will have to have done is more extensive than Peyton’s. Because, well, his bite is jacked up. In more ways than one.IMG_20120828_081136

He’s still the cutest!

So, today he and I spent our morning getting an appliance put in on his upper teeth that will have to be turned twice a day. Oh goody. The appliance has a name but I can’t remember it so we’ll call it the thingamabob.

The thingamabob is going to be a little bit of an adjustment! It’s hard to swallow with it and hard to talk. Not to mention you can see it when he smiles and they have school pictures tomorrow and we have a family photo shoot soon!

Oh well, it’s just part of growing up…and that’s just how he looks until December!

Oh man I had one of those (if it's what I'm thinking it is). It will give him a headache when you turn it, so maybe some tylenol or something?!

:( Boo. And he already has headaches from his ADHD medication. At least we only have to turn it for a week.
