After many tears, screams and tantrums, Lincoln finally doesn’t mind us brushing his teeth. I wouldn’t say he likes it just yet but he will let me brush the tops, the bottoms and the backs (my technical terms for his teeth). The one thing he does like about the process is the toothpaste. It doesn’t matter if it’s his bubblegum flavoured toothpaste, or mom and dad’s minty stuff, he really enjoys the taste – maybe a little too much.

Doesn’t he look like such a little boy standing on his stool at the sink?

We let him do a little of his own brushing but we take over for the real cleaning.

Time for a drink of water…

On second thought, I’ll just dump it out.

Boys will be boys

Lincoln loves playing in the dirt and mud. I joked with the health nurse the other day that he probably wouldn’t need his one-year needles because of all the dirt he has eaten in the past month. She thinks it’s great that he loves being outside and is being exposed to dirt and germs, but he’ll still get his needles – shhh, don’t tell him.

We bought Lincoln a $5 pool because he loves to splash around in the water, and we all know what a love of dirt and water creates…MUD!  He decided the other day that it would be a good idea to climb into his wading pool fully clothed.

The dryer ball is good for everything except preventing static on clothes.

He got nice and dirty and was oh so proud of himself. I missed his actually time in the pool but the aftermath was definitely captured.


Lincoln decided that mom needed a hug after he was done. I think he just wanted to get me dirty too but I took the hug anyway – how can you say no to a face like this…

Hi mom!

His clothes went straight in the washing machine and came out sparkling clean – thanks Seventh Generation! I can’t wait until the weather gets nicer so he can play outside without clothes on.
