For nearly two years of your life you fought getting your teeth brushed. You cried, pushed, fell to the ground, and bite down on the tooth brush.
The Pediatrician recommended a motorized brush.
That didn’t work. Plus when you would bite down on the brush you turned a simple brush into a machine that sounded sickeningly similar to the dentist drill. (Probably one of mommy’s least favorite sounds.)
And then, randomly I picked up a replacement toothbrush.
It happened to have Batman on it.
(Truthfully it was on clearance for $2.)
I don’t know why I picked it up. You didn’t even know who Batman was.
It didn’t have a motor. It wasn’t fancy. It didn’t sing…
But I did.
I sang the Batman theme song.
And you loved it.
And you opened your mouth wide.
And you let me brush your teeth.
And you still let me brush your teeth.
Of course, I still have to sing every time.
BATMAN – who knew!
Da Na Na Na Na NA BATMAN!
