Did I say toddler, I meant a Rabid Dog!
Brushing my sons teeth is my least favorite thing about parenting so far. Give me all the poop diapers just don't. make. me. brush. his. teeth!
"it tastes bad"
As he scream-cries, pushes me away and drools all over the whole world. I just wish he knew the importance-Mama he's 2! He will learn one day.
If this is anything like your experience, you know the morning and night time brushing can go from rainbows and butterflies to who let the dogs out!
Well, I was determined to stop this nightmare!
Max is a new big brother, so I've been using the "you're a big boy" phrase ALL. DAY. LONG!
I sat him down and said "now that you're a big boy I think you need a big boy toothbrush!"
He jumped right up with so much excitement!
We went to the store, found the isle and oh boy, I wish I could get as excited as him over a new toothbrush! Oh the innocence, I love it!
I decided that we were going to try out an electric toothbrush! I showed him the ones to choose from and he chose, Black Panther! My boy loves everything Super Hero!
He was so happy that I let him pick it out himself! I told him how proud I was and that he's such a good young man! Something so simple makes me sob! Why do they have to grow up so fast!
We got home and he immediately wanted to brush his teeth!
My little man insists on doing the entire process by himself... ya we all know how that goes.
We have a timer we received from the dentist and Max loves it! Loves to play with it that is! I think we've only made it to 2 minutes once! But that's okay we celebrate every win- every time!
Okay moment of truth! Max flips the button and his face lit up!
He brushed for the full 2 minutes! FRONT BACK SIDE TO SIDE-okay, joking but WOW! Just such a simple switch of putting him "in control", rewarding him with something only "big boys" have, and as always being their cheerleader- this nightmare routine has turned into a fun, rewarding routine!
Going from a manual toothbrush to an electric has been such a game changer for our household! Max brushes twice a day with no hassle since switching!
Black Panther, electric tooth brush for the win!
I found this on Amazon! It has the rinsing cup, the timer and of course the electric toothbrush- one click away from a complete routine turn around!!
This could be a great stocking stuffer, a 'big boy reward' or hey if it's time to replace your kids toothbrush and you're ready to try an electric brush HERE YA GO!!
