The kid brushes, flosses, and uses mouthwash twice a day, no fail, with no prompting. Pretty impressive for a 5 year old! Even our dentist, Dr. McKay (who Ethan lovingly refers to as Dr. Decay) was amazed at how well he does with his teeth.
That is why I shouldn't have been surprised when Ethan, well, pulled a typical Ethan.
Yesterday, while speaking with the butt-cleavage-displaying drywall man, Ethan said matter of factly, "Hey! You are missing a few of your teeth!"
I could have crawled under my couch and died amongst the discarded goldfish that have gone belly up.
Fortunately, dry wall man is a very gentlemanly man who has many children and grandchildren. He handled Ethan's comment with grace and said, "You are right! I didn't take care of my teeth and that is why you should!"
Ethan, of course, detailed his teeth routine, and then gave drywall man a glowing recommendation for Dr. Decay.
At least he hasn't noticed the man's butt . . . I do not know how that one would have played out!
