“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…

I can see sparkle coming out from his teeth.

Joyce says: LOL! You can??!!! Hehe…that’s the whole idea!

see, he was seriosuly doing that, good practice, not miss a step…

Joyce says: Yes, he loves brushing his teeth!

very good sure no decayed tooth!

Joyce says: Yeah!

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!

hehe…looks like koko is biting the tootbrush!! :-D
Joyce says: Nola, he is trying to reach every part of his teeth!

Hope he’ll continue to love brushing his teeth forever. Bye bye tooth decay. :)
Joyce says: Yes, we would very much like that.

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.

Ethan is growing to be a cute handsome big boy dear, good job to mummy and daddy !!

Good to hear that he’s talking you all to the ground, hahahaaa! Must be a joy, entertainment, and quite an exercise to answer all the questions…

May Ethan soon have fun teaching your No. 2 :-)
Joyce says: Thanks dearie! He brings us so much joy every day!

i wonder how many times you have to brush your teeth? haha…

Joyce says: Thankfully just once :) But he will insist till we do it!

so cute of him looking at himself in the mirror :p

Joyce says: LOL yeah..
