"Mom? When I get my braces am I going to look weird?"
"Nope. You'll be handsome as ever."
"It's going to hurt though, right?"
"Probably a little at first while you're getting used to them."
"What if I change my mind about it after I get them on."
"That's not an option."
"You'll be really glad you had them once you have nice straight teeth."
"That could be potentially overrated."
