Today I took my 8-year-old son to get braces. After waking up at 5:30 a.m. and spending two hours trying to erase the "thought loop" running in circles around my brain that questioned whether I was doing the right thing by subjecting my poor baby to the horrors of the evil, sadistic orthodontist, I finally fell back to sleep for 10 minutes before the alarm jarred me back to reality. Jack was nervous -NOT NEARLY AS NERVOUS AS HIS MOM - but put on an incredibly brave game face. Two hours later, we walked out of the sweet, gentle orth's office with smiles on both our faces (albeit one a little more silver-y than the other). I swear, the "what ifs" of life will kill you! Jack's doing great and actually thinks he looks BETTER with his braces. Just one of the joys of being a boy.
Meanwhile, KiddyDittys continues in rotation on Rummi Radio and I continue my quest to find bigger and better venues for my hubby's amazing music.
He did come up with a great name for his back-up band - John Jeffrey Hodges and the Big Boyzz. My girlfriend Kate has agreed to design the logo - so all we need is a date and we're good to go.
