I was talking to 2 other moms this morning while our boys were all playing. We all have sons born within 2 months of each other.
Mom 1: "You missed a spot when you were brushing your teeth."
Mom 2: "I don't let him brush his teeth. I do it for him."
They both turned to me to see the tie breaking vote. I let The Bear brush his teeth by himself because he loves it and I want him to learn. Then, I re-brush his teeth for him so it gets done well.
It's not often I find myself feeling brilliant these days. I wonder who else has any cool genius tips for child rearing. Any one want to share?
