Listerine Total Care

So, I have been crazy busy lately. I won't go into all the reasons why right now, but trust me on this one.  With so much going on, sometimes things go undone a little longer that I would like. Things have been forgotten. 
For example - I forgot when Annabelle had pajama day at school not too long ago. Long story short, a trip to Target and about 15 minutes later (I was in and out of Target in less than 15 minutes. Amazing, I know) I redeemed myself. 
One thing that I don't want to forget about, or slack off on, is our teeth. The kids are actually great about brushing, will let me floss once in a while, and even love to use their rinse. I, on the other hand, usually forget to do more than brush morning and night. I am always looking for ways to multitask and my dental health is no exception.
When Mom Central and Johnson's asked me to tell you all about LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE, I was more than happy to do so.  I feel so much better about the state of my dental health now that I am using it. Here are six benefits from LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE:
*Helps Prevent Cavities
*Restores Enamel
*Strengthens Teeth
*Kills Bad Breath Germs
*Freshens Breath
*Fights Unsightly Plaque Above the Gum Line
And, when I wake up groggy from not enough sleep, LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE is a nice wake up for the senses.  

I know I need to floss, and maybe visit the dentist once in while, but this is certainly a start. Go to to learn more.

The Man Child

I am not sure when it happened, but Michael has become a big, giant boy. Please excuse the drool - he is also cutting some big, giant teeth.

Disney on Ice

For those of you that don't know, I spent my childhood on the ice. And every year right around this time, the club put on an ice show. This was the greatest thing EVER growing up. I have so many great memories - including being a Chimney Sweep for a number one year, as depicted in the fabulous picture below.

So when I was asked to spread the word about Disney on Ice, I could not resist. The girls have seen a few videos of me, but somehow I think they would rather watch Jasmine and Ariel and company. And since your kids can't watch my videos, they will definitely want to check out Disney on Ice. I even have a few discounts to pass along as well.

Johnson's Celebrates 50 Years of No More Tears

When Mom Central asked if I would like to participate in a blog tour celebrating Johnson's 50 Years of No More Tears, I jumped at the chance.  I have many memories of my mom using the detangling spray on my hair when I was a little girl. And now twenty some years later, I am using it on my girls. 

Michael has incredibly sensitive skin (even more so than the girls, if you can believe that) and one of their new products has been great for him. JOHNSON'S® HEAD-TO-TOE Foaming Wash is soap-free, dye-free, hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested, and is specially designed for newborns. Bonus: it smells so nice I want to use it on myself. 

It is very simple to use, so if you are bathing a newborn you can keep one hand on the baby, and use the other to dispense the foam easily. I do have to make sure I keep it away from the girls, though, because the foam is apparently *REALLY* fun to play with.  

Check out their YouTube channel for tons of great information on Johnson's products and more.
