Oh my gosh....I just got back from the orthodontist. Jake and Carly are both starting treatment. Carly got braces last week, and Jake is in the process of getting started in "phase 1" which is getting an expander put in. I will now be paying about $270 dollars a month. Ugh. I swear I should have never quit my job. I am going to have to find a way to earn some money. I will probably start subbing at Jake's school a couple of times a week, I guess.

STRESS!!!

I know braces are expensive but kudos to you for putting your children first. This was not my experience and I still, as an adult, want to get braces or veneers. But, now I have a child and he will come first.

that's so spendy! I remember my expander and brace face days. OUCH! I was always in pain. It has to be really hard to have 2 kids going through this at the same time.

Oh, I feel for you, Beth Anne. I experienced that last year when my kids had to undergo several dental procedures all in one month. Well, it's actually my fault. If I only planned well the schedule of my kids' trip to our dentist (Las Vegas, Nevada-based) for the whole year, it wouldn't have been financially problematic. Lucky me, our dentist in Las Vegas, NV discussed to us our payment options, and that made things much less complicated for me.
