I brush Gooly's teeth.
...while doing a whole lot of other things, usually with some paste and foam and my own toothbrush hanging at the corner of my mouth.
Sometimes I remove my contact lense first. Thus, I squint when I squeeze the paste and I squint when I brush his teeth.
So yesterday I was bending down to Mr. Four Feet with blurry vision. Three seconds into the routine, with paste and foam in his mouth, he suddenly excused himself.
"COME BACK! YOU ARE NOT DONE YET!"
"Wait, mom. I need to get something."
Tsk! What is so important?
I turned around, faced the mirror (not that I can see anything) and brushed my own teeth (remember my tooth brush was already parked inside my mouth?)
Then he tugged at my sleeve. I bent down again and squinted again for I couldn't see him. I managed a "hrummp?" which means "What?" with a mouthful of foam.
And he shoved my spectacles into the rightful place.
Ah.. he knew I couldn't see. I didn't know he noticed things like that. Or rather sometimes people notice but is not bothered to help (like papah). I do spend a lot of time looking for lost glasses and nobody offers help.
But Gooly is different.
He helps without being asked.
Lesson learned: Remove contact lense AFTER brushing teeth.
