I have a little toothbrush
I hold it very tight
I brush my teeth each morning,
And then again at night
I wish this were true. I know my daughter is supposed to brush her teeth twice a day but too be honest we only usually do it once a day and sometimes we forget all together. I can only blame it on the mayhem that comes from having a 3 year old in the house. Some days getting her dressed is enough to get me sectioned. In my defence, they’re all going to fall out anyhow and maybe I can get a reduction from the Tooth Fairy for sub standard merchandise?
Joking aside, I’ve taken her to the dentist to have her teeth counted and to get her used to visiting the dentist. The dentist, who is also a very good friend, was happy with her oral hygiene. However, I do need to make more of an effort instilling regular dental hygiene habits.
We were sent a Hello Kitty Firefly Toothbrush, you press a button and the light flashes for 1 minute, which is the recommended time they spend brushing either their top or bottom teeth. As you will see in the video below, we still have a long way to go but it’s a start. I like how she uses her shirt as a flannel! Nice!
I think they only cost a couple of quid and would make great stocking stuffers and are available from Argos and Lloyds pharmacies.
PS. The reason she is brushing her teeth is because she had just had some chocolate. I’m sure you noticed it on her PJs!
