Today I took DS to his consultation with the orthodontist. As the people here on the blogs told me, it will be around $6000, the amount I saved. If we didn't pay up front the cost would be $6180, but since we are we get a 5% discount. That is $309 off. So our total is $5871. Which means I have $129 to figure out what to do with. He will be doing Invisalign, but the cost of regular braces was only $200 cheaper and I don't think he would tolerate them well, due to having a tender mouth.
Randomly, dinner tonight was delicous. We had baked chicken that I rubbed with olive oil, salt pepper, and sazon seasoning. Then we had herbed mashed potatoes, and steamed broccoli. Simple but full of flavor and one of my favorite meals.
