No...it's not the music I'm listening to right now.
Nor am I building a skyscraper out of big pieces of steel.
It's a reference to a milestone that happened to Hesley this week.
Nothing major, like potty training, or first words, or even that first little gassy grin.
He got braces!! You know,
your teeth are jacked up we want to make your smile pretty, kind of braces.
He's only 7, so we were in no way prepared to do this at such a young age, but a visit to the dentist a few weeks ago deemed it necessary.
Here he is before....
And here he is after...
And he is quite proud of his braces!!
buggin' the snot out of me tapping me on the shoulder and grinning at me to show me. I smile back and nod giving my full support of his proudiness when what I really want to say is...
"Yes son, I know you have braces!! I wrote the check...remember!!"
