What do I say to my darling daughter.. when she comes up to me with a semi wet face, wearing a proud grin.
"Mommy, I just cleaned my face"
Me: "Oh good job!"
"Mommy, I used your toothbrush!"
Me: "You..used my toothbrush to clean your face????" I feel the bile rising in my throat.
Me: "Why is your hair wet?" I ask quickly.. noticing streaks.. of damp hair.
She touches her hair. Smiling again. "I used your toothbrush to brush my hair too"
This is one of those "Oh honey..I know you meant well.." moments. You know the kind.. where you try to explain..to your child..they did so good trying to do right.. but.. not to ever use mommy's toothbrush again.
Even as I type I am semi gagging at the thought of what other things my toothbrush has been used for... Goodbye dear toothbrush!
