Damn. The picture says it all. I didn't know they still put kids in these torture devices!
The worst part was, he didn't even know it was coming. He had an orthodontist appointment yesterday morning that I thought was just a quick check on his retainer. I dropped him off on my way to work and told him "No worries Zach, just a quick look at your retainer to make sure you haven't broken anything. Call Mona (our nanny) when you are done and she will come get you."
I came home from work to find him in the above get up. I felt so bad for him. He has to wear it 14 hours a day, sleeping in it. He took it in stride though and hasn't complained once. And I promise to pay a little more attention to what is coming up during his treatment!
