Jake finally got his braces off (on Friday). His appointment was first thing in the morning and I scheduled a dental appointment for the two of us for late morning. He had the braces on for almost 2.5 years. That is a long time. He has to wear a retainer constantly for the next 6 months, then at night for the rest of his life (or, as they like to say at the orthodontist's office, wear it as long as you'd like to have straight teeth).
I took the day off work, but don't really have anything else to report about the day. I did nothing when I got home--knitted for a bit and then took a nap. Kind of a wasted day, really.
