My youngest daughter has never had an easy time with brushing her teeth and flossing. She has a terrible gag reflex and will do just about anything she can to get out of brushing well. She tries hard though.
Tonight she was brushing her teeth and flossing for a long time when she finally came to us and asked for help. She thought she had some popcorn from her bedtime snack stuck in her teeth and she couldn’t get it out. She tried and tried and even had my wife in there trying. I finally went and grabbed a flashlight so that we can see what was going on in there.
Ends up she didn’t have popcorn stuck in here teeth; she had a new tooth coming in. A new molar. So she’s pretty excited about a new tooth since she just lost one of her other teeth, but she was really getting annoyed at the “red stuff” that was coming out of her mouth when she was flossing. I guess we’ll explain that one to her when she is more awake.
