she does have her own toothbrush that she can hold and chew on and 'brush' with. and she has had blinking light toothbrushes and singing toothbrushes and toothbrushes with kitties (she loves kitties). Sometimes we brush her bear's teeth or another animal she has with her. She pretends to brush our teeth and she asks to help me brush my teeth, which means she yanks on the brush a few times and feels proud of herself.
They always get brushed, but not right before bed. Usually in the morning, I admit. It consists of us chasing him down, trying to make it a game, and on and on and on. He used to love to do it, but now that he says NO and knows the meaning, its just such a fight!
