After a while (like two days or less), the cap of the new toothpaste tube gets lost. Never fails. So the threads get a little sticky, and gummy, and finally crusty. It's hard for the twins to squeeze toothpaste through the crust, and they run to me for help. "Mom! Can you do Toothpaste Power?" And I summon my super mother powers and help the poor children with dirty teeth.
Toothpaste Power is especially needed when they reach the end of the tube. Getting that last bit out is a challenge for my little people. Getting the last week's worth of toothpaste out of the tube is a challenge. So why don't we use a toothpaste pump or something easier? For the sake of the mess, I don't mind it being a little bit difficult for them.
And I like them to think I am awesome and have Toothpaste Power!
