Toothbrushing success - revisited

A few months ago I blogged about having a new technique for toothbrushing with Kenny, that was very successful. Well, it turns out that over the course of time, it was actually only somewhat successful. Supervising Kenny's toothbrushing was still one of the more stressful parts of my day.

Anyway - I have a new technique, or actually an addition the previous techniques. I pull myself together, try to be less grumpy, and make the toothbrushing into an adventure, by pretending that I can see the "cavity bad guys" in the form of animals. For example, "Look, I see a tiger cavity bad guy! I'm going to brush him him!"

So far, surprisingly successful. We'll see how it works in a week or so.
