    Movie Monday (Aka Brush’em, Brush’em, Brush’em)

    AKA Miracle of Miracles!!! This is G brushing his teeth. Miraculous for two reasons:

    1. he’s doing it himself (well… sorta)
    2. he’s tolerating a toothbrush in his mouth!!!

    Yeah, this is the child that just spit out any toothbrush offered to him. And yet, here we are with him thinking this is fun. I actually give full credit to my new dentist for this. At my last appointment she gave me an electric toothbrush for the munchkin. Shaped like a fire-truck, thank you very much. So G out of curiosity let it in… and he let it stay. Now we tag team brushing teeth. I go in first w/ the firetruck, and he follows up with his little brush.

    The other day when S and G went up to G’s room for a didy change, they were upstairs for awhile. When I asked what happened, S told me they had to take a detour to the bathroom because G wanted to brush his teeth!

    Ok, ok, in reality he just likes to suck the water of the bristles, but there is some contact with his teeth and it’s a good first step.

    Thank you new DDS!

      sooo cute! Jasper LOVES his toothbrush (boothbrush as he says) but in reality he really just likes the toothpaste! I actually use teethbrushing as a bribe to get him to let me change his diaper. He keeps asking for “more” by which he means more toothpaste. It also helps that it has elmo on it πŸ™‚

      That’s adorable!!! James loves to brush his teeth, too (with or without the toothpaste). Light-up toothbrushes are a hit with him. πŸ™‚ I do use the Jason/Earth’s Best baby toothpaste… no fluoride, super gentle, strawberry banana flavored. πŸ™‚
