I’m Windy the lungs! Can you believe another month of 2011 has already flown by?! Sometimes when so much is going on, between school, friends, sports, and other after-school activities, I forget to do some of the little things, like brush my teeth. I know, it seems crazy that a pair of lungs would forget to brush her teeth. I certainly don’t want to be exhaling bad breath all day!! But last week, I forgot to brush my teeth before school so, of course, I had horrible breath all day! Now I put a sticky-note on my mirror that asks, “Windy, have you brushed your teeth this morning?” Now when I see that, I remember that I want to have fresh-smelling breath while I enjoy the fresh air! And to make brushing my teeth more exciting, I made up a little song that I sing in my head while I brush my pearly whites:
Windy, Windy, she’s the best!She loves the air that fills our chest!
Windy, Windy, she’s our gal!With such fresh breath, she’s everyone’s pal!
It’s a bit silly, I know, but it makes me smile (and flash those beautiful teeth)! You all should come up with a song that you sing while brushing your teeth! To get you all in the teeth-brushing mode, there is a cool activity sheet where you can design your own toothbrush—and one for me as well!
Keep Breathing! (Not that there really is a choice – but you can choose to make it a “breath of fresh air – giggle-giggle.)
