I’m not quite sure what it is about the toothbrushes or the kids, but we are constantly looking for toothbrushes, or hearing complaints about Sister X using Sister Y’s toothbrush, or picking up toothbrushes off the floor that the toddler has scattered.
My friend Lynn  was so disturbed by my admission that I sometimes tell the kids to just use my toothbrush that she brought me a whole bag of brand new toothbrushes when I met her at Blissdom , earlier this year.
I thought I had a great idea a while back when I bought everyone a cup, labeled it with a Sharpie, and put a brand new (labeled) toothbrush and a little (labeled) tube of toothpaste in each one.
That worked for about a week before the 2 year old climbed on the bathroom counter and knocked all the cups and their contents all over the bathroom floor. Pandemonium ensued.
That’s why when I went to visit my friend with 11 children , one of the issues I wanted to discuss with her is organizing toothbrushes in a large family.
She told me that their family has the same problems with toothbrushes, and they recently tried something that seems to be working.
I was all ears and this is what she shared.
So far, it’s working for me!
