Toothy pegs

You might have noticed Lady Grace is sprouting teeth faster than my garden sprouts weeds... and that's fast by anybody's standards. We have been brushing since spotting the first berg back at Christmas only now we are spending more time on it as her smile fills out.

On last count this morning we had 8 mountain peaks. Two minutes of brushing seems like a long time, so we're singing the Brushing Song that I found surfing on google. We sing it to the tune of Row Your Boat and lucky for us, that is one of her ladyships favourties. We try to make the bathroom routine fun so I thought I'd share...

Brush, brush, brush your teeth, at least two times a day.
Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, fighting tooth decay.

Brush, brush, brush your teeth, every single day.
Gently, gently, gently, gently, whisking Plaque away.

Rinse, rinse, rinse your teeth, every singly day.
Swishing, swishing, swishing, swishing, fighting tooth decay.

I believe it wont be long before Grace takes over the brush herself - we let her dabble now and apart from blobbing the toothpaste all over her face and popping the handle in her mouth in the meantime, she's doing pretty well. I imagine she'll master it a long while before she masters the words to the song. A bit like Matt the Husband in a way, only different. He can grasp the words, it's the tune that eludes him :0)
