Kids are so damn expensive

Cheeks has been losing teeth left and right for the past two months. She's lost a total of eight teeth (4 on top and 4 on bottom). She just lost her 4th tooth on the top, which allowed one of her top middle teeth to come in. I noticed that it was big and seemed to be blocking the tooth next to it.

Today Jack took both kids to their semi-annual dental appointment. They took a panoramic x-ray of Cheeks and have referred her to the orthodontist.


Mother-f-er. SRSLY? W already had to get a butt load of ortho work done. He's 8 years old and has already had braces. He has space maintainers on the top and he's getting them for the bottom on Friday. We switched insurance at the beginning of the year. I figured since we were already maxed out on ortho for W, we wouldn't need it anyway. Now the insurance we have, ortho is excluded.

Does it ever end? I mean, really. I need to sell a kidney or some shit. Any takers?

Wow that sucks! I'm sorry to hear your ortho is excluded on your your new insurance cuz that WILL be a butt load of money! Hang in there!

Hell no! I can't buy yours cause it would be a conflict of interest. Mine's already on the market, LOL!

Doesn't it suck how expensive it is? They used to charge you based on the work you needed done. Now, they charge everyone the same, and figure that the kids who need a lot of work done get off cheaply, and the ones who don't need as much done make it up. Which really sucks, cause mine are in the 2nd bracket. Where is the equity in that? $4200 each for 18 months each. Gah!! Hope it's cheaper in your neck of the woods!
