The past few nights (to be honest, ever since the pediatrician put the fear of God in us last week that we MUST brush Dylan's teeth every night... or else!) we have had to instill another event in the PM routine: the sonicare teethbrushing extravaganza.

Fade in. Dylan interested for a brief moment in his own toothbrush while we brush our teeth with our sonicare toothbrush. Fade out.

Fade in. Dylan sees us with the obviously-superior-to-the-lame-baby-toothbrush (electric-fun-feeling sonicare) and swarms in for the grab. Mommy and Daddy decide that it would be cute to let him try it out and see what he thinks of it. Dylan falls in love. Now Dylan MUST have the sonicare whenever it makes an appearance. Fade out.

Fade in. Dylan melting down the moment said sonicare is taken away. Fade out.

Needless to say, that is the precise moment when the bedtime routine shifts into baby-goes-to-bed-NOW mode.

Maybe we need to wait to brush our own teeth till after he is in bed for the night. But then again, then there won't be that special "we all have our toothbrushes and are brushing before bed together" moment anymore. What a dilemma.



You can drop $2 on some cheapy normal toothbrushes for you two and fake him out, saving the primo sonicare fun for after hours. Just a thought. So cute.


Ever since I noticed that the electric toothbrush wakes Katie up, I switched back to the old "manual" kind, and actually like it better now. Plus now there's the Katie-daddy-toothbrush thing :) Katie likes to trade brushes with me, too.
