Goodbye Braces!

Today was a big day in the Weinrich household. A trip to the orthodontist produced a smiling, brace-free Benjaminm! Although his teeth feel "slimy," he is happy to have them off. He was worried that he would hate the retainer, but he's found it is better than the braces.

That's the good news about Benjamin. The bad news is that last night he used his destructive powers in our garage. While trying to get a game, he pulled on our metal shelves and ripped them off the wall. This resulted in the mess you see above, as well as two very grumpy parents. Benjamin spent the rest of the afternoon sorting out the games and playing pieces, which he thought was completely unfair. Just wait until we fix them and he has to spend the whole day working on it. "I didn't mean to" has become a familiar refrain in our house.

For your amusement, I also am posting a picture of Jonathan in his Buzz Lightyear costume. I bought the costume at 90% off after Halloween, and then he got a set of masks for Christmas. Very cute.
