Rehm's Career Path

Rehm had an orthodontist appointment yesterday.  It was just a progress check.  He needs to lose teeth and get molars before the next phase - complete braces.  I was asking the Dr. when the next step would need to be done as I am trying to stagger all of our orthodontic needs so that we are only paying for one child at a time.  The Dr. told us we could easily push it out at least two years but that he found many kids wanted to be out of braces before high school.  I laughed and told him I wasn't concerned with Rehm's fashion needs only my budgetary constraints. 

When we got to the car, I was explaining to Rehm that we would only be doing braces if they were for true bite/jaw needs not cosmetic. I went on to say that if he felt the need to fix the cosmetic issues he could do that when he was an adult.  His response, "Yeah, I'll need to do that for the photo shoot."  I questioned what he meant.  He said, "You know if I'm going to be an actor, I'll have to do a photo shoot."

I cracked up as he explained that Ronald Regan was an actor before he was a great politician.  Since Rehm's current career plan is to be a politician he has decided he should follow Regan's path to the White House. 

I do so love this goofy boy!
