Tooth brushing has become even more important in our house now that everyone has at least a few permanent teeth in their mouth. Remember the post about our bathroom redo and my fantasizing about the vanities from CSN stores? Well, as a result of that post, I was given a gift certificate to use in any one of their 200+ online stores.
Took me a while to choose, but one thing I finally decided on was the My Prince Toothbrush Holder and Timer. It's cute, cute, cute, and the kids love flipping the timer and watching the sand run down as we brush teeth. 3 minutes is a long time, but with all the rinsing and flossing, you really do need all those seconds, and this helps me the kids take their time and not rush. It matches our bathroom so well, and I just love looking at it. It's instantly cheery. When I was a kid, I *hated* brushing my teeth. And as an adult, brushing my kids' teeth is a chore I like less than most others. So anything that makes it a little more pleasant gets a big thumbs up in my book!
