so what does one do when every morning and every night i am confronted with a 20 month old who will not let me or g brush her teeth. she insists on doing it herself.
we started this whole brushing teeth business with a game. she brushes my teeth i brush hers. it was wonderful until she saw that after she brushes my teeth i go on to brush my own teeth! te game came crashing. now i am not allowed access to her teeth. the irony, she allows anyone other than g or me access to those not-so-pearly-whites-anymore. in bangalore, sush, bhavana, ami, ravi, all were allowed to brush her teeth for as long as they wanted. back home, there is a huge tantrum if i dont let her brush her own teeth.
inventive ideas needed fast before those tiny teeth begin decaying.
