Yep..so I came up with the story of the teeth for the brat to brush her teeth!
RM: Abhi R if you dont brush your teeth fast, your teeth will cry
RM: They will get dirty na…
RM: Errr…because you have eaten all stuff na
as if I give her bad stuff to eat…no its not me..its only RD..me…well..I am a Saint mama 🙂
Anyways, so here goes the story
One day there was a little girl (LG – I said little girl everytime but its too much to write so shortening it to LG) who never used to brush her teeth..the teeth would always cry to her amma saying ‘LG’s Amma, LG’s amma’ please ask LG to clean us because the germs are attacking us…
LG’s Amma used to keep telling the LG to clean her teeth but she would never listen..slowly her teeth started becoming yellow and then brown
R: Kyun amma
RM: Becuase the germs started attacking them and then they started getting dirty and then slowly slowly all the teeth started rotting (Errr…this needs to be said with a scary voice like how they have in the bhoot movies)
RM: then the LG wanted to eat one apple one day..as soon as she bit into the juicy red apple, her teeth pained..ouch said the LG…what happened to my teeth? why am I not able to bite into the apple…
So the teeth cried ‘clean us clean us’
Aeee! said LG…who is this shouting
Teeth say ‘ hum, hum, your teeth’
LG goes running to her amma and says amma amma my teeth are brown and I cant bite into an apple and my teeth are crying..
Amma asks her to open her mouth and then says ‘see I told you na, that your teeth are getting spoilt’ now the germs have started eating it and slowly slowly you cant eat anything (to be said in a sinister tone)
LG starts crying and says no no amma I want good teeth…
Amma says ‘okie so now brush your teeth properly for some days and see if they are getting any better’
In the meantime, the LG saw a small dirty brown coloured speck walking like a king near her mouth…
LG said hey hey who are you, why are you coming inside my mouth
The dirt said, I am a germ and you cant do anything to hurt me, I am going to get into your teeth and dig big big holes in them..hahahahahhaha! (Please add the hahahah effect okie?)
LG gets scared and quickly takes a LOT of toothpaste on her brush and starts cleaning up and down and round and round..
Phew say the teeth, finally she is cleaning us
She starts cleaning her bottom teeth, when her upper teeth say ‘arey clean us also clean us also’
LG says ‘but woh toh bore hota hai’ (Pretty much what the brat says!!!)
so the lower teeth say’ Arey LG if you dont clean our friends the upper teeth, then all the germs from there will attack us again’ please clean the upper teeth as well, they are such nice friends of ours…
So the LG starts cleaning the upper teeth
and then starting from Sunday till next Saturday, ie sunday, monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, thursday, friday and saturday (teach the kiddo days of the week), the LG cleans her teeth twice a day..once in the morning and once in the night…
R: But Sunday is holiday na amma? *Can you believe how much of the laziness gene this girl had inherited!*
RM: Toh kya hua..you have to clean your teeth EVERYDAY
R: Like on Sunday, monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, thursday, friday and saturday
RM: yes yes..good see now you know the days of week 😉
Slowly her teeth start getting yellow…and then one more week she brushes her teeth everyday two times and then her teeth start shining white
LG is very happy and she is able to bite into anything..
Her Amma is also very happy and LG says ‘amma, main everyday teeth clean karungi..once in the morning and once in the night’
The things you do as a mother!
