    Brusha… Brusha… Brusha

    February 17, 2007

    K:  You wanna go upstairs first and get ready for bed?  Or are you ready?
    D:  No, I gotta brush.
    K:  “Brusha, brusha, brusha, With the new Ipana.”
    D:  Where the HELL did that song come from?  What the hell is an Ipana?  Why do you insist on singing that song every time you ask our son to brush his teeth or when you brush your teeth?  Where did you learn it?
    K:  I don’t know.  It’s the song they sang when we were in school to get us to brush our teeth.  Right before they would give us those pink tablets to chew on so we could see how effective our brushing was.

    My husband rolled his eyes.  I knew he was blaming my behavior on a lack of public school education.

    Who knew?  First that I have been singing it wrong all these years and that it’s a toothpaste from 1915.  But the jingle is just so CATCHY!!

      My husband makes up songs all the time. It’s always the “little whatever it is he’s doing song”. Drives me batty.

      My dad used to sing that song! It was a jingle for an old brand of toothpaste, like you said. He sang it with a twinkle in his eye, as a joke because the kids were always like, “What the heck is dad singing?” He loved that reaction. 🙂

      Awwww, you made me think of my dad. Thank you.
