Hrmph.

Forgot about this posting but I ment to say this is a sad statement, makes me want to shake my head.

The egg timer gave her that visual she needed to see that there was a end coming, I think. I recall in my schooling days where we all had to chew those tablets which highlighted to plaque on our teeth and the impression it gave me at the time.

This does bring up a thought though about all those things they had us do 30 odd years ago which I don't happen to see my kids doing. It might all be stuff that LC handles but it seemed like in public school there was a needle here and there waiting to poke my arm, hmm.

I've got a Sonicare and it does a little pulse thing every 30 seconds to tell you to switch quadrants, then shuts off after 2 minutes. Seems like it would work for kids. I assume he's old enough to have adult teeth?



I've been lucky, I took shitty care of my teeth for too long and have never had a cavity. I still hate flossing.

he is 6, they are only childrens teeth. its mostly about teaching him how to properly care for his teeth, and make sure the adult teeth grow in right. also to keep the dentists bill to a minimum. he cant handle 2 minutes of brushing yet, but his older sister uses one of those, so does my wife. they are great. i dont think ours have those fancy timers though.

did someone say flossing?

I broke down and bought some DayQuil. If it does not help, I might go on a rampage or something of that nature.

Getting married in June and have a block of rooms reserved for guests at a historic hotel that is walking distance from the reception venue and the bars downtown. Just received word that the university has purchased the hotel and they will be closing in May. mad.gif
