Adventures of Steve's Toothbrush

Every morning I wake up, get Cailin dressed, fed, teeth brushed, hair done and then she is allowed to fill her brain with mindless TV watching for 1 hour while I get ready for the day. Avrie, however is not as easily entertained except for with 1 item...Steve's toothbrush. I have tried giving her her own toothbrush, she has a princess one, a Dragon Tales one, a purple one, but they are all quite inferior in Avrie's mind to Daddy's toothbrush. I have thrown my hands in the air and given in. So, as I wash my face, brush my own teeth, put on makeup, do my hair. Avrie has her morning ritual with Steve's toothbrush.
First she brushes her own 6 teeth...



Then she brushes her hair...



Then, of course, she has to clean up after herself, so she gives the sink a little scrub down...




When we are both finished with our morning routines, we replace it back in its original location, and nobody knows a thing. Steve goes right on using that toothbrush and Avrie goes right on sharing it with him...he has no idea. At least he didn't until he reads this. The funniest thing about all of this. If I know my husband, and I know I do. He will go right on using that toothbrush with no hesitations about it. For two reasons: 1. He's too lazy to buy a new one 2. He really doesn't care.
What a great dad!

It must run in the family. I'm pretty sure that Cailin used my toothbrush when I was visiting. I didn't care and still use it. Although I would hope she didn't use it to clean the bathroom like Avrie does. :)
