Bedtime Nachas

February 28th, 2009

My five year old, Yaacov Yosef, finds bedtime the best time for him to ask his deep and lengthy questions. Tonight he used his brilliant five year old logic to salve a problem he has been having. Before he goes to sleep he usually realizes that he it either hungry or thirsty. I tell him I can’t give him anything other then water because I brushed his teeth already and anything else then water will give him cavities (which he calls holes in the teeth). This is a problem for him because he hates water. So finally after thinking about it he told me to give him apple juice and some crackers and he’ll just lay in his bed but won’t close his eyes so he won’t fall asleep. He said he’ll rest until morning. Then I informed him while giggling that it’s not the sleep that makes the holes, it’s the food that sits on the teeth all night, so even if he doesn’t fall asleep he could still get cavities. He sighed and then gave up and fell asleep.

    Why don’t you just show him a video of a dentist drilling from youtube. That should do it!
