Funny Fantastical Activity Friday: Brush our Teeth!
Every morning I hold Blip on my hip while I brush my teeth. I let him watch as I brush, brush,brush.
He likes looking in the mirror, and thinks it's funny to examine my tooth brushing up close. When he decided he wanted to grab the brush I re-gifted him a weird flossing handle my dentist gave me years ago.
So there we would be together, me brushing and Blip chewing. I would then grab a soft cloth and clean his gums. He likes this.
I like to think we are staring a nice habit. Brushing our teeth together in the morning. I talk to him about what I'm doing, and show him how I move the brush. He thinks it is great fun.
Today was a big day for Blip, he got his first real toothbrush to brush his two new teeth! He thought this was the neatest thing!
To top it off we sing a little diddy that I make up on the fly.
Maybe it goes like this....
" We gotta br- br-brush your teeth
br - br- brush your teeth
We always remember to brush our teeth
Up on top, and down on he bottom
on your tongue so big and pink"
-Sung to the tune of Rockaway Beach by Ramones
Add this activity to your babies day everyday! It is both fun and healthy!
