If you come to visit, I suggest you bring your own toothbrush.

From upstairs, sounds of merriment. A little too much merriment. Beloved goes up to investigate.


*indignant sounds from Beloved*


I look up as Beloved comes back down the stairs, his eyeballs visibly rolling. I’m almost afraid to ask.

“Remember those new electric toothbrushes I bought last week?” he asks.

I nod.

“They were racing them across the bathroom floor.”

I pause, considering. “Um, they had wheels?”

I always bring ny toothbrush anywhere I go to sleep but this does make it even clearer as a necessity.
Althought, most electric toothbrushes have replacement brushes…

For a long time I wondered when my kids would develop that sense of revulsion that one gets regarding touching every surface in a bathroom. From my small sampling size, it seems to be around age 7/8.
Hilarious anecdote….

Finola, I’m not convinced boys *ever* develop that sense of revulsion. Certainly no sign of it here — and very odd looks from them when they see me expressing it, too!
