Brushing Teeth

I will be the first to admit that I am the worst mother when it comes to brushing my daughters teeth. Madison got some cavities, ok not some, 2o (she only has 18 teeth!). I decided that I needed to be better. After racking my brain to decide how I could remember to brush their teeth everyday, let alone twice a day, I came up with an award system. I made a graph on the computer and bought a 200 pack of small stickers. Every time the girls brush their teeth they get to put a sticker on. They are so excited they are reminding me that they need to brush their teeth. Now hopefully I have made a habit that we can keep up. I can't afford to pay for cavities to be fixed.

We have a chart like that for potty training right now (it doesn't have that many stickers on it right now). On a side note Kaelyn has the same pjs as Payton. I bet they are the same size too :)
