But now, braces are everywhere. Sometimes I wonder why some children even need braces at all. Their teeth look perfect to me. And the price of fixing one of these is another story. I had to ask the doctor to repeat the cost to me twice just to make sure I heard him right. I can buy an Hermes Birkin with the same amount of money! I guess things were simpler back then..

Retro - When things were simpler..
Today was dentist day for the twins. Apparently they need braces for their teeth. Maybe I’m ancient but during my days wearing braces was not the norm among the children. I remember one of those years in school, a new girl joined in and she had braces on. We were looking at her like she was from another planet because they (braces) were rare! Whispers like “Ouch! It must hurt so bad!” or “I wonder what kind of tooth brush she uses” were going on for weeks after she came, not in a bad way but mostly out of curiosity.
Well, on the positive note, the boys seem to be alright with the idea of wearing braces. Better now than later.
