What a night.....

video

Owen had us laughing last night. He insisted on brushing his teeth over and over again. I couldn't get him to go to bed and stop brushing. First, I tried having him say goodnight to his toothbrush and toothpaste and put them in the drawer. He screamed, cried and was so sad about it. Second, I thought putting him in bed would help him forget about it. Not so lucky! After 10 minutes of heavy screaming and crying I finally went and got him. I let him continue to brush his teeth until he had his fill. Problem: He never got his fill. He would've slept with his toothbrush and toothpaste had I let him. I had to capture on video how much he was into brushing his teeth. After I got the video, we put away his toothbrush and toothpaste and he cried himself to sleep in 15 minutes. I felt horrible but didn't know how else to handle it. He hasn't ever been this attached to something before. I can't complain that he desires good hygiene....
