Maggie is still resisting it often, but I let her brush them first, and then I do it again to make sure they all get brushed, and that the toothpaste just hasn't been a great early morning treat.

This morning I finally told her that I have to do it too because if we don't brush them all, they'll fall out and we don't want that. LOL...I'm so going to be paying the piper for that in a few years when they really do fall out, but at this point, I'll deal with it when it happens too!

I usually let him brush his own teeth, sometimes I will run over them quickly myself before he flips out at me.

I brush them for her. If I wouldn't she would gnaw on the toothbrush and suck on the toothpaste and the toothbrush would look like a 20 year old toothbrush with bristles to the sides.

After I finish she can "brush" or gnaw on the toothbrush for a little but then I take it away b/c she kills the toothbrush really fast. I just went to the store and bought 3 packs of toothbrushes b/c she kills them so fast.

Tommy does the same thing, then when I try to do it, he freaks out! I don't want him get cavities, I have really soft teeth and get them easily, so does Lily. I hope he has teeth like his daddy, no cavities in 39 years...LOL

She insists on doing it, but I try to catch her off guard- like when she's fresh out of the tub and wrapped snugly in the towel.

The Toothfairy won't pay for rotten teeth! Only top of the line Grade A teeth will do
