When 3-year-olds attack

After hearing suspiciously uproarious laughter coming from the bathroom one evening, my wife and I came upon this scene:

She is an artist, and her medium is Dentifrice
Show of hands, how many of you have had this happen?


Editor's Note: For the record, this is only what was left after the perpetrator and her highly amused accomplice tried desperately to destroy the evidence. Also for the record, we have a deceptively large bathroom sink-- that right there is about a third of a large tube of toothpaste.

I have tried every toothpaste in every type of 'container.' Nothing prevents this. Trust me.

Have you tried supervision? (I don't, but I hear it's somewhat effective)

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Which is why we keep the toothpaste on a shelf out of reach of small hands.

I was tending my two-year-old nephew when he somehow imbibed half a bottle of bubble bath in about 30 seconds. He was frothy for the rest of the night, kind of like a washing machine with too much detergent added. Classic family tale now.

Only every time we brush teeth! Mr. B enjoys the spitting too much.

I've given up on this fight...I now buy different color toothpaste just to switch things up a bit. You know red blobs instead of blue. It's how I roll.

Everyday. (I have two hands up right now)

Dude. It does not really improve when they are 9. Or sometimes 14.
Maybe when I start making the little angels re-use that toothpaste...
Mwahaha

My wife has the same problem as your kids.

Sadly, this is what my girls' bathroom sink looks like when they've finished brusing their teeth.

They're 7 and 9, by the way.

I got one of those toothpaste dispensers that you hang on the wall, touch n brush I think it's called. Supposed to eliminate the mess. Only the toothpaste won't come out because it gets dried up in the dispenser and clogs it.
