Flipping the Switch

Its interesting how a child can flip a switch so fast. They can be tired and cranky one moment and then up and ready to go the next. For example, my little one was just laying down watching Disney’s The Princess and the Frog, about to fall asleep. She lost it because she didn’t want to sleep. So she jumped up grabbed her stool, went to the kitchen and attempting to find the cookies.. What a winner!

We were at the park today as well, she meet a new little girl to play with. She started running away from her because the little girl wanted to play with her sticks and rock, then she was holding her hand calling her little friend to come one, lets do this, lets go swing.

I wish it was that easy to switch it on or off like that and get away with it. Sad to say i can not do that now because i have parent. Oh man!

Brusha Brusha Brusha!!!

How many times have you told your little one(s) to brush your teeth? With my toddler, this is a constant. “Lets go get those teeth clean” “Can we go brush our teeth with Mickey?’

Yes you heard that right, Mickey.

We spend about 4 mins a day, enjoying brush time with the Oral-B Disney Magic Timer App.

In this app, the child gets to choose from their many favorite Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars Characters, to brush with. As of 4 days ago we have switched to Mickey, but started with Sully from Monsters Inc., then to Elsa from Frozen, then the Hulk, and so on and so forth.

The App

Once you open the app, you can add as many “Brushers” as you want. Select your “brusher” and it will bring you to their personal brushing page. On this page has the “Glowing Toothbrush” a Calendar, and an Album. Each of these buttons has its own hidden gems.

Who doesn’t want to push a button the glows! I know my daughter does. Even when she doesn’t want to brush but wants to pretend. She gest the cool rewards for brushing. The glowing toothbrush opens up to a timer of 2 minutes. It starts with an opening video, of the chosen book of rewards your child had selected. As the timer starts, the toothbrush slowly reveals the picture under all the foamy bubbles of virtual toothpaste fun.

Oh! The calendar of fun. This calendar keeps track of your child(s) brushing progress. The child receives stars the days he or she brushes. Its pretty fool proof to understand, but no stars are given when there was not a successful day of brushing. Half a star is given to them if they brushed once a day. A full star is rewarded to your little brusher when he or she has had an full successful day of brushing 2 times a day.

Within the calendar it keeps track of the dates and what reward your brusher received. Some of the rewards are first time brusher, to brights smiles, to pro brushers.

Picture Books

Besides the golden toothbrush button, the Album button is my daughters favorite feature. This is where your little one get to look through all their albums. The albums are a collection of stickers that relate to the book that they are working on. Once they have completed a book, a new one unlocks.

My daughter has been trying to open up the Star Wars book for a while, but she must finish Frozen first.

“I brushed my teeth!!!”

Every bit of this App is awesome. My daughter loves to brush her teeth and because of the Magic Timer App, brushing her teeth has turned into a fun time. She smiles, laughs, and dances to the songs in the back ground. I even find myself brushing my teeth with her, dancing along side her, because we all know how hard it is to take 2 minutes out of our rushed day to brush via Daily Prompt: Toothbrush
