He’s Still True to the Nickname

I was discussing braces with the older boys this morning, and The Mercenary asked how much braces usually cost. I told him, “Around five thousand dollars.”

“Five THOUSAND?????” he exclaimed. “All you need is a paper clip and some glue!”

    karla and KY Commonwealth he is definitely adorable. I’ve been enjoying the improved sense of humor lately. We all laughed pretty hard when that popped out of his mouth, it was totally unexpected.

    nissan virtual office makati it’s frightfully expensive! Especially since we might be doing 2 kids at a time. Thankfully we’ve got some time to save up our dollars before the boys actually need any major dental work.
