Who knew braces cost so much? I never had them. My hubby had them 20 years ago. They were a little cheaper back then! I took K. to the orthodontist yesterday. She has a beautiful smile but her 14 year old self doesn't see it that way. Her teeth really aren't bad--only a slight 'crook'. The not-fun part is that even after our insurance pays 50%, we are still looking at $2.5K! Ugh. My husband and I agree, though, that if it makes her feel better, it will be worth it. Not that she is so insecure--she's not, but she does have typical girl issues! Wish I had had the foresight to start a "braces" fund when the kids were little!
