toothing away!

just about a month ago, i saw at least one of erika tooth had already half melted away! aiyooo!! she still need those molars to last another 1 to 3 years before the "real" thing appears.

the brushing drill have not worked on her, i have tried getting her pink toothbrushes, let her choose barbie one, princess one...after getting them, they line the kitchen sink parading like beauty queens - see no touch! then i thot maybe she didn't like the baby toothpaste (apple banana flavour - sweet stuff) that cost more then $20 a tube, so went to get a princess one la (complain it's "hot" wor), dunno what else to do.

so she end up brushing without toothpaste, my philosophy - it's better then not brushing at all!

you can say - still no success...then finally last week, popo went and got a toothpaste that's not prettily package and is "hot", but she luuurve it! and has been brushing at least twice a day...popo amazing to the rescue again!!

yahhoooo, end of the rotting tooth i hope! thankfully this good habit starts before any new permanent tooth comes out...

as frenly reminder...tsk tsk tsk....all those aunties, uncles, grandparents (note the bigger font) and frens who are reading, pleazzz restain yourself, i know it hard hahaha resist the temptation of giving my girls the forbidden stuff! hehehee

shern loves brushin his teeth, i bought the batt op toothbrush for him and he must brush his teeth twice a day. he actually asked for it. ::puttin his finger in his mouth and say eeeee::
ya the toothpaste cost a bomb, but then that's the only one safe for swallowin. no wonder parents nowadays cannot save a lot of money.

You realised or not sometimes we just pamper our kids too much with things we tot are good for them; whereas actual fact they may be contented with just the simplest thing we could never have came across at first place...

Aye... you can actually have some kind of "cap" (of course they don't call that lah) to cover the molars so that they can tahan till they are replaced by their permanents. Btw, Molars are supposed to last till they are about 11 lah.. so still looooooong way to go. Better go see a dentist NOW to do it.
