A sure sign that Jeni and I are becoming old fuddy-duddies occurred a few weeks ago. Maddy got braces. Jeni also had them when she was 12 and had to wear them for nearly 4 years, complete with every gadget and attachment except the dreaded headgear. Technology has improved as they're thinking Maddy will only need them for just over a year and with no other gizmos required. And, lucky for us, about the time she'll be done, it will be Joey's turn!
