So I've decided to get honest with my fellow bloggers.
I'm going to post a series of "confession blogs" confessing my deepest darkest secrets to all of my faithful blog readers.
First confession: I am slightly obsessed with brushing my teeth.
No joke, I brush my teeth after every meal. Sometimes it's up to 5 times a day. I know, I know, it's not good for your teeth to brush this much, yadda yadda yadda. I don't care. They don't call it an OBSESSION for nothing! So, aside from the fact that I love brushing my teeth, I have a little routine that I go through every time I brush. First, I have to use ICE COLD water. I let the tap run for a bit to ensure the correct temperature. Once the water is set, I run my tooth brush under the water for at least 30 seconds. I need my brush to be very wet before I apply the tooth paste. After I put the perfect amount of tooth paste on my brush (not too much, YUCK!) I have to run the brush under the water again for another 30 seconds minimum. After I've prepared my tooth brush with the tooth paste, I begin the brushing. I usually start on the right side of my mouth. Moving from top to bottom to top to bottom, and so on. After about a minute, I switch sides and continue my routine. After both sides are done, I work on the front teeth. Sometimes I have to put more tooth paste on the brush to ensure that I give all teeth equal attention... I usually brush for a good 3 minutes. Then I rinse my mouth out two times, rinse my tooth brush out, and that concludes my favorite daily activity. If I could, I would brush my teeth countless times in a day. I love it. I also love getting new tooth brushes, and new tooth paste. I have to be sure to buy the right brands and styles... I've basically got it down to a science. I know it's a bit ridiculous, but this is a confession people. I'm bearing my soul to you. My deepest darkest secrets. Remember that! Stay posted for the next confession.... I promise, it will be good!

That's funny. Better clean then not, right? I like confession blogs, I have a series "confessions of a clean freak". It sounds like you and I are a lot alike when it comes to liking things clean! :)

I say that you cannot ever brush your teeth enough and I LOVE the feeling of a freshly cleaned mouth. :) I commend you for your confession and obsession. Ha! Oh, and I TOTALLY have a routine when I brush too. Love ya!

Emily I always thought that I loved something about your smile. Now I know really clean white teeth. I brush my teeth forever too. It feels good to me.
