Grooming Tactics

Oh! The things kids say! 

 The other night as we were getting the kids ready for bed, I called Chase into the bathroom to brush his teeth. He quickly scanned the toothbrush cup and said his toothbrush wasn't in there.  I told him to go look in the bathtub toys (since many nights I have them brush their teeth during their baths).  He just shrugged and said,
"Eh, I'll just use a random toothbrush." as he reached for one out of the cup.
I said, " WHAT?! A Random toothbrush?!  Eww... Chase, please don't ever use someone else's toothbrush!" 
It left me seriously wondering how long that's been going on!

Then the next day, I was talking to Livvy in preparation for school starting back.  Not wanting her to be sad that she will be the only kid at home this year, I was trying to sound positive.  I said,
 "Livvy, you know that the kids all go back to school in a couple of days and we will have lots of time to spend together-just you and me!" :)
She gave me the cutest grin and squealed and said, "We can have make-overs!" :)
I laughed, not knowing how she even knew what a make-over is.  Maybe it was inspiration. 
 I think I probably need one...
That and a new toothbrush!
