Bible Verse of the Day

“I wanna brush teeth!”


…and he does it HIS way…
… asking for his toothbrush and toothpaste
… complete with gargle and spit action using his own cup

… and yes, *sometimes* (actually more often than not nowadays) he would insist that Daddy and Mommy brush our teeth too, after he has completed his task!

How can we turn down a “Mommy, brush teeth!” or “Daddy, brush teeth!” request that comes with a gentle shove towards the bathroom?

Ethan is a big boy now…

    gentle shove?
    my rooster boy will PUSH me to the bathroom, fill the mug with water, take the toothpaste and my toothbrush and command, “Nah. Take, squeeze the toothpaste yourself, I’ve put water for you already.”
    Then matched out as if he had completed the most honorable task. *laugh*

    Joyce says: I was being *diplomatic* when I said “gentle shove”. hehehe….
    but not to the same extent as your boy la!

    That’s great he can even spit! Mine is swallowing at the mom (flouride free). Hey, looks like Ethan and Bryan are currently using the same toothbrush – Oral B Stage 2? i HAVE to brush with him everynight 🙂

    Joyce says: Yes, he gargles and spits pretty well, but I think he does swallow a bit of the toothpaste while brushing. And he won’t allow me to brush for him now! Yes, Ethan is using Oral B, though I can’t remember if it’s Stage 2 or 3.
