Much to my surprise, all of my children (sans Nate who is not old enough to know yet) are in need of braces. I could go into all of the details of what is wrong with their mouths, and some of you would nod along sagely totaling the astronomical charges as you read. Rather, I'll just say the total dollar amount I need in order to finance beautiful- and healthy- smiles.
You might want to sit down. I keep pinching myself in an attempt to wake up.
$17,000-$20,000. Yes, it hurts. The good news is that Rebi is $5000 of that, so by selling her I can pay for the remaining kids and reduce the total bill to $12-15,000.
