Too Smart By Half

First thing in the morning, I go in to check on Iain. He's up, I'm up, we're both smiling.

So I say, "How about we get up, brush our teeth, have some brekkie, and then play!" He looks at me funny. "We all have to brush our teeth, dude. It's part of life. Let's go do it and then have brekkie and play!" I like repetition as a parenting tool.

He says, "How 'bout clean diaper?"

Oh. Right.

Sure we should all brush our teeth in the morning, but first things first. I love it.
