Picture it: This morning, our bathroom. Mommy trying to get ready for work. Curly Sue decides to brush her teeth. She gets hold of the big boys' Spongebob Flouride toothpaste, unscrews the cap, and starts sucking on the end.
Me: Don't do that. Too much toothpaste will make you sick. Put that down.
CS: (Pouts as if I had just kicked her puppy)
Me: Don't you be looking at me like that. You can't eat the toothpaste.
CS: (welling up) I sowwy, Mommy. (crying, trying to open the bathroom door) I go to my woom now.
