Can't afford them (well, I could before all the nice taxes went up/market went down), can't well, you know. . .
It is official - the oldest needs braces. . . - OUCH
and the joke my company calls dental insurance will cover $1500 lifetime max. . . . better than nothing but only 20% or so of what this will cost. . . never mind anything else that comes up like if any teeth need to be pulled.
What a racket. . . .
Well, just another happy day as a parent. . . . Sure, like I have money left after the government and the mortgage. . . now if I can just get the kids to stop eating everything will be fine. Food - it is an addiction really. . . .
