Do I need to start looking for a Good Vibrations - Kidz store?

Zeke likes to brush his teeth while he's taking a bath.  Or, more accurately, he likes it when I put kids' toothpaste -- which tastes like Juicy Fruit gum -- on a toothbrush so he can suck the toothpaste off the brush, and then ask for more.

Last night in the tub, he said "toothbrush?" (or something approximating that in Zeke-ese), so I put some toothpaste on his Incredible Hulk toothbrush with the rotating brush.  

"No," he said, shaking his head.  He pointed to the vanity counter at my toothbrush, which is one of those Philips SoniCare brushes.  

"Do you want mama's toothbrush?"


I don't have toothbrush issues, so I handed him my toothbrush and he pushed the button to turn it on.

The SoniCare works because the brush vibrates at a really high speed.  So if you put it on your tongue or your gums, it kind of tickles, as Zeke quickly discovered.  He kept putting it in his mouth and giggling.

I turned around and started putting on some face cream.  (And for those gasping in horror at a mother turning her back on a child in a bathtub, I could hear him giggling behind me, so I knew he wasn't drowning.)

"Ha!  Hahaha!"  Giggle giggle.  Giggle.  Squeal.

I turned around, only to discover that he was holding the head of the vibrating brush on his penis.  He looked up at me and gave me a huge grin.

"Aw, dude...come on, now!  Really??"


I admire his ingenuity.  But my lack of toothbrush issues only goes so far.  I guess I'm in the market for a new one.

    One of my sons, although several years older than Zeke, has found that the pool jets feel pretty good in his netherregions too when standing in front of them ;) He asked me that was normal :) Carolyn

    Just keep him away from the shoebox under the bed or at the back of the closet or wherever you keep it!

    Just saying...



  3. Carolyn - so funny. I guess it is normal, in a "that's what human beings do" kind of way.

    Sherice -- done and done.
