I told you I went to the dentist last week, so this brought a little confession to mind. I hate being reprimanded for anything, and can’t stand when the hygienist tells me it’s obvious I haven’t been flossing daily and I need to start to maintain maximum dental health… yada yada yada…
I should floss everyday. I know I should. I intend to after each visit to the dentist.
And then standing at the mirror brushing before bedtime, I realize that if I skip flossing, I can get in bed a minute earlier. Worth it? For this wiped out mom: totally!
Anyway, to throw the hygienist off our tails, we start flossing daily when we get the reminder cards in the mail about our next dentist appointment. So we floss daily for 1-2 weeks before our appointment and they are none the wiser when we get cleaned! They think we’re faithful flossers!
Whew! Some things you just need to get off your chest!
