Brush my teeth

Ever since ytd I told Little DinoEgg that I will be putting his toothbrush, toothpaste n a small plastic cup in his bag for him to bring to school, he has been bugging me to let him brush his own teeth.

This morning he request it from me but I was lazy to take out the stuffs, so I sort of distracted him with something else. Just now he bugged me again, not once, not twice but thrice n while I was having my dinner! OMG! When I finished my dinner n washed up the utensils he was actually shouting YEAH! then come up to me and say "Mummy now u can take out my toothbrush and toothpaste for me to brush my teeth right?" I agreed half laughing.

We sat at the sofa, while I am taking out the stuffs from the plastic bag he was mumbling to himself n doing the action. "I will take the toothbrush (he hold on to an imaginary toothbrush) and then put the toothpaste on it (putting imaginary toothpaste on the imaginary toothbrush) and then brush my teeth like this (brush his teeth with the imaginary toothbursh)." After I got the stuffs out, he insisted on doing that, he tried to squeeze the toothpaste out but unable to do it. We squeeze the toothpaste together onto the toothbrush. Then he happily brushes his teeth on his own. I only have to give verbal instructions :)

Its ok that we only managed to cover have the bristle with toothpaste, its perfectly all right that he keep brushing the front teeth, its alright that he cannot manoeuver the toothbrush properly. The important thing is HE BRUSHED HIS TEETH HIMSELF. Great job son!
