. . . almost peed my pants!!

As a mom, I'm a little anal retentive on the oral hygiene!  After spending several thousands of dollars on 'straight' teeth I think it's important to look after them!  I can frequently be heard asking "Did you brush your teeth?" or chanting various other teeth brushing reminders as my kids walk out the door.

The other morning was a little different as the tooth brushing conversation had 'NOT' been initiated by me.  I could hear my oldest two children discussing (well, arguing, maybe fist a cuffing, and possible utterance of profanities) downstairs . . . . blah, blah, blah, 'stupid tooth brush', blah, blah, blah.  I thought . . . AHA, mom's advise is wearing off!  I head towards the front door enroute to schools and work and can hear my son ranting, he is extremelly annoyed and doesn't appear to be very happy with his sister . . . hmmmmm!  How can something so right, like brushing your teeth, go sooooo wrong?  They appear to be bent out of shape over a 'stupid' tooth brush!

So here's what happened . . . Morgan had apparently placed one of her tooth brushes in her brothers 'area' of their shared bathroom and he used it.  Basically no big deal, right??  Well turns out the tooth brush Tyson used, had been used by Morgan . . . to clean her shoes!!  YIKES!!  Well I did my best to refrain from gagging, it was all I could do to hold myself together.


T . . . why'd you put it with my stuff??

M . . . well, I didn't want the dog to get it!

T . . . ohhhhh, but it was okay for me to use it???

M . . . blah, blah, blah

T . . . STUPID tooth brush!

As Tyson and Morgan continue to bicker back and forth, Mikayla pipes up and says . . . "Is this show almost over?  Cuz we gotta get to school!" . . . and out the door she walks!  I was thankful for her jolt of energy and we all headed to the vehicle.  Rest assured these two continued to argue . . . for days!!!

The morale of the story . . . learn to laugh at your mistakes!!  I Believe . . . if you laugh at your mistakes, you'll never run out of things to laugh at!  Believe ME!

You don't have to brush all your teeth - just the ones you want to keep.  - Author Unknown
