Eliza has finally added some bling to her day. Banilla Bling that is.
Most kids' toothpaste is made with those same foul tasting cherry/grape/bubble gum flavors that the makers of Tylenol think kids, all kids, just love. Not so here at Casa Richter. Eliza has a very, very discerning palate and would never lower her standards to allow such pedestrian flavors to touch her palate. OK, so that is a nice way of saying Eliza has a feeding disorder that extends to not permitting me to brush her teeth (yes of course I could brush her teeth if I hired two off duty cops to hold her down for me, but it really wouldn't be worth the emotional trauma).
But Dr. Best, Eliza's beloved dentist, brought some Banilla Bling to our lives. This stuff is awesome. It tastes like vanilla frosting, so who wouldn't want to brush their teeth. It is far tastier than the dreck that Oral B has been pawning off as a "flavored" toothpaste.
So a new record has been set here: We have now had ONE WEEK of tooth brushing. Not too impressive considering Eliza has been with us for over 200 weeks, but hey, it is a start:
Plus a little Elmo:
Equals some pearly whites:
