Teeth brushing fun!

Teaching a 2 year old to brush their teeth has so far been a regular battle of wills. While the idea sounds fun and the tooth brush itself provides lots of entertainment, the act itself is far from enjoyed!
Unfortunately my little one does not like it when daddy takes over the playing and attempts to actually brush the teeth clean. Currently sucking the brush is the preferred method.
So tonight breakthrough. Give them the new toothpaste tub and let them load the brush. Now this method might be slightly more costly, after most of the tub is emptied in one go! However after deftly removing the excess paste, our little one proceeded to have a real great effort at copying daddy. Result!
Once happily occupied I was able to quietly finish of the job with minimal fuss, job done, everyone still happy.
Fingers crossed for next time!
