Cars had his last "expander" appointment at the orthodontist today. He will keep the expander in as a "retainer" and we'll go back in three months to see if his lateral incisors have grown in by then. The baby ones were knocked out in May 2010 and the orthodontist says there is a chance the adult teeth are impacted. Hopefully not because I don't want him to have to have oral surgery!
After the ortho appointment, I took all three kids for their flu shots. Dex said he would go first then got all teary-eyed because he was scared. I think in the end he was rather shocked that the shot did not hurt much. Jax said it did not hurt at all but later complained that his arm was tired. Cars freaked a bit too and cried.
But I took them to the frozen yogurt place (which is awesomely allergy-friendly!!). All is good.
