Brushing up!

I wonder how long this would last, but am I proud of her for initiating it in first place. Yes, I am talking about my daughter who for the past 2 nights has been asking me to brush her teeth before bedtime.

Usually I brush her teeth early in the morning when she wakes up and once in the evening during bath time. Then at night, she would usually takes 2 milk feedings (usually one is around 7 something and one is exactly before she goes to bed). So for the past 2 nights after finishes her milk, she requested me to brush her teeth. And of course, I obliged to her request!

Few weeks ago, her school organized a dental care and the students are taught of how to brush teeth. When I asked her how she supposed to brush her teeth, she told me “round and round and round, mummy” with her hand gesture. Well, when I let her handle the tooth brush herself, she just move it a bit on her front teeth and the other teeth were left untouched. I guess I better do the brushing job for her for time being, till she is capable enough to handle it herself.

Some parents don't take care of the children teeth. It is good that u train our kid to do so.
