Just a little ditty

Posted on | July 13, 2011 | 4 Comments

In the mornings, J and I brush our teeth together.  We dance around the bathroom like crazy folk, me brushing and him basically sucking on his toothpaste.  (I do a little brushing for him after he is finished.) This morning, I tried, yet again, to teach him how to actually “brush” his own teeth.  He did pretty well, scrubbing his front teeth like a pro.  But when it comes to the teeth not in the front? Yeah… not so much.

So today I said “Don’t forget your back teeth!” with a big smile.

And J looked at me and nodded, removed his toothbrush from his mouth, and without hesitation…

He brushed his toothbrush across the back of his shirt.

    And those are the moments motherhood is made of. Thank you for the laugh (and I did burst out and laugh).

    Just wait until he’s 3 and won’t let you brush at all…pretty sure my little darling will be toothless by his 4th birthday! These little fun moments…they make our realities so much more bearable 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
