One thing I’ve come to appreciate about the Arm & Hammer Spinbrush ProClean & kids Spinbrush is that it takes the guess work out of brushing your teeth. I know it’s getting to places I otherwise couldn’t as long as I move it around my entire mouth.
Even though it seems to get the job done faster, I want to make sure my kids are still brushing for the same amount of time to really ensure they’re getting ALL their teeth clean. So I like to turn brushing time into learning time!
This is one of those rare moments in the day where I have them both captive in the same place at the same time 🙂 Since my kids are 5 & 7, they’re technically old enough to brush their teeth by themselves, but I still like to be there for the process as part of our bedtime routine. So I take advantage of this teachable moment and often sing to them in French while they brush.
Usually it’s something as simple as their “ABC’s” or “1-2-3’s” in French, but it’s the perfect amount of time to brush and it reinforces the language and concepts they already know without seeming like I’m “babying” them.
On that note, I also love writing notes on our bathroom mirror with dry erase pens. Sometimes it’s Bible verses, other times it’s characteristics I hope they’ll embody. Sometimes it’s even as simple as writing “I <3 you” and making the heart big enough so their face will fit inside! Whatever it is, I make sure to do everything I can to turn the ‘dull’ into ‘delightful’ at the end of our day!
How do you make your dull moments delightful? I want to know!
