the stars are his teeth

i have been to the pediatric dentist three times this week. the second time, i took this boy (seen below reading a berenstain bears book in the waiting room).






















to get his braces snipped off!






















unfortunately, the process also involves a semi-permanent retainer on his bottom teeth (zoë still has hers; it's to prevent the bottom teeth from going all crookedy as they are wont to do), and a temporary clear top retainer (also known as an ubby gubby, and i have my fingers crossed that minnow doesn't eat this one). next month he'll get the longer term real retainer, which he is pretty annoyed about.






















i tried to get him to smile for some pictures, but he grabbed my phone and did some self portraits instead.
