Its been a week now since Disha started insisting on brushing, every hour, on the hour. She wants to either practice her newly acquired skills of brushing her teeth on her own or she just loves eating the tooth paste.
She says burrsh and runs in excitement to the bathroom. You cannot get away with offering her just the toothbrush sans the paste. If one of us refuses to give her the brush telling her that she needs to brush only twice a day, she gets so upset that her eyes glisten with tears and at times she runs away in anger.
We have, as a desperate measure taken to putting away the toothbrush. She looks for it in the whole house and once she is satisfied that it is really missing, relents to doing something else.
We need to see how long this will last!
