synchronizing databases across two machines

I have a laptop and desktop development machine, I'm trying to always be in sync with both data in database and files.

I fixed my file issue by running unison scripts which works beautifully.
My issue is my database now. Is there any graceful way to handle that or do I need to dump and reinsert every time i want to refresh updates?
I'm using mysql server.

Database synchronization need to be done on database level, not on filesystem level.
You can setup replication for Master and slave (one way, from master to slave),
Or the database dump and restore (not bad with small database ),
