I said these words to Little Bear on Sunday evening when the battery started to go on his Minions toothbrush mid clean. And here it is, Friday, and I’ve said those words every day since Sunday. Surely today is the day I can achieve this small task??
It’s just been one of those weeks where an hour at the park has turned into 3 or 4 lazy hazy hours with friends, where the rain has tumbled down and we’ve busied ourselves with Hama beads, where a 30 minute swimming lesson has turned into a day trip. And so the toothbrush has been sidelined.
Twice a day I’ve cursed myself for this oversight. No one enjoys brushing their teeth with an electric toothbrush that has no battery, least of all Little Bear, especially when it’s couple with “the world’s yuckiest toothpaste”.
So today we have very few plans and my sole objective, the only thing on the list, in big bold letters, is to Buy a toothbrush! Surely I can’t fail.
