At Least It Was Flushed This Time

Meredith loves to brush her teeth. I realized this when every time we would pass the bathroom she would point and yell "TEE! TEE!" She can happily while away at least 10 minutes in her crib "brushing" her teeth. This has proven helpful when I want to do something luxurious like pee in private.

This morning Jamie left the gate at the bottom of the steps open and after a few minutes I realized I no longer heard or saw Meredith. As usual she had taken the opportunity to climb quietly up the stairs.

She was standing in the bathroom, holding a toothbrush in each hand, neither of which was hers. One was in the toilet and one was in her mouth. I'm sure it's too much to hope the one in her mouth hadn't visited the toilet previously.

On a positive note, my toilet is minty fresh.

Just how do you get her to like brushing her teeth??? Melody thinks it tickles so will turn her head this way and that to avoid any contact with the toothbrush. Her cheeks have absolutely no tartar on them.

I have no idea. God knows my other two would run a mile to get away from the tooth brush. Maybe give Melody a toothbrush and point her toward the toilet?
