Well, this is certainly a bummer… After nearly having nearly lost it on vacation this past summer, it appears that the world’s luckiest retainer has gone on the lam.
About a week ago we noticed that Son #1 was hadn’t put in his retainer at bedtime. As it turns out, he couldn’t find it — and neither could we. The frustrating thing is that we know it has to be somewhere in the house because he only wears it to bed. But we can’t find it anywhere. It’s starting to look like we might have to head to the orthodontist for a new one.
While these things aren’t made of gold (and who would ever buy a gold retainer necklace like the one in the picture?), they’ll still cost a pretty penny. In our case, a replacement will run somewhere in the neighborhood of $175… Ahh, the joys of parenthood.
