Laura had her routine dental exam yesterday, during which the dentist explained to her the importance of brushing at least twice a day for two minutes each time. That night we had the following conversation just before bedtime:

Mom: “Laura, did you brush your teeth?”

Laura [with a heavy sigh]: “Yes. And I brushed for a full two minutes, which took about an hour, my mouth overflowed, and then I got toothpaste on my shirt.”

  1. That two minutes DOES take about an hour. 😉

    Her account reminds me of “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” one of my favorite books. 🙂
