He now allows me to brush his teeth thoroughly and he is also getting pro in spitting.
I blogged about my latest visit to the dentist here.
This morning when he woke up, we had this conversation:
TL#1: Mommy, what happened to your missing teeth?
He wanted to hear the story again.
Me: They were eaten by germs. They were filled with cavities so the dentist pulled them out.
TL#1: But why, what did you do? You did not listen to your mommy?
Me: Yes, I was hardheaded. I did not like to brush my teeth.
TL#1: What did you say?
Me: I said (imitating him) Waaah! No, I don't want to brush my teeth. I don't want to!
TL#1: Me, I listen to you mommy. I brush my teeth. They are clean. See, I have 20 teeth!
(And he opens his mouth wide to make his point)
I hope he grows up with good habits on dental hygiene. At least (for now) he doesn't eat candies.
I was not conscious of my dental health until recently and I'm regretting it.
Next step: Try to bring him to the dentist for his first check up.
