These teeth are BRUSHED

I am a somewhat quirky person. I have a lot of “things”. You know,  those “things” that make perfect sense to you but seem redonkulus to those around you? Yea, those “things”.

I’ve got ‘em.

By the basketful.

I’ve confessed some of my things in the past on this blog. Here for example.

But there are some that have remained a secret to this day.

Like the one I’m about to reveal.

I hate morning breath. Okay, I’m sure we all hate morning breath. If anyone loves morning breath, you’d probably all agree that that person is even more quirky than I.

But, I really really really hate morning breath.

So much so that for as long as I can remember, if I wake up in the night to pee or something, I have trouble falling back to sleep if I can taste, less than fresh breath, shall we say.

Now, with my newfound lifestyle, I tend to wake up be woken up multiple times a night.

And so I brush my teeth. Again and again and again.

Even when Eva was sleeping in our room and feeding her required simply pulling her into our bed and then placing her back in her bassinet, I often found myself sleepily staggering through our house to the bathroom to brush my teeth before I fell back asleep.

Weird? Maybe. But I guess I just like my teeth clean. The only problem is, now we have to spend our life savings on toothpaste.

Haha that IS a little quirky... I don't like fuzzy Trey so brushing is a must, but if it's just for bad breath, have you tried those listerine things that you put on your tongue??

Wow! I have to brush my teeth before bed in order to fall asleep, but I can't say I've ever felt the need to brush them again when I get up in the night to pee. You are one quirky girl! But yeah, maybe there is a better way - like keeping some tic tacs on the bedside table or something. :)

haha!! That's so funny :)
If I eat raw garlic or nacho cheese doritos I end up brushing my teeth once, if not twice in the middle of the night! haha

Can you brush your teeth too much?

Oh my word, I get up so many times to pee that I'd have the cleanest teeth in the world if I did that! Yeah, that is a little quirky ;)

This is so funny - I can't believe you haven't told me about this before!

Gina said...

Quirky indeed. I have only brushed my teeth in the middle of the night when I accidentally fallen asleep without brushing them!

Oh friend. That's a good one. I hope you have a soft tooth brush so you aren't damaging your gums!
