Keeping Smiles Healthy with Listerine Smart Rinse- Review and Giveaway *Closed*

Did you know that according to the US Department of Health and Human Services 50 percent of children will have a cavity or filling between the ages of five and nine? That is a pretty scary statistic when you think about it. As parents it is our job to ensure that our kids are taking proper oral care steps to ensure that they're not part of that 50%... That's where Listerine Smart Rinse comes in!

While brushing your teeth is an important habit, brushing alone misses 75 percent of your mouth! Daily flossing and rinsing with a fluoridated mouthrinse, like Listerine Smart Rinse, are essential in keeping kids’ smiles bright, beaming and healthy. Providing 12-hour cavity protection, Listerine Smart Rinse strengthens teeth 99 percent better than brushing alone.

Listerine Smart Rinse features your kids favorite characters like Phineas and Ferb and Barbie and comes in super yummy flavors including bubble gum and bubble blast. We were recently sent a bottle of Phineas and Ferb Listerine Smart Rinse to review and the characters alone are enough to make Brayden want to use it. Plus he says that it tastes great which is always a plus when it comes to kids!

Keep Kids Creative with a Crayola Ultimate Art Supply Case

I don't know a single kid who doesn't like to color and draw pictures... I know my boys love it! And as a parent it is my job to encourage that and provide them with the materials they need to be as creative as possible. Crayola has always been my go-to brand when it comes to coloring supplies so when they offered to send us the new Ultimate Art Supply Case to review I was super excited!

The Ultimate Art Supply Case comes with everything kids need to draw, color, and create a masterpiece including 24 crayons, 8 markers, 12 colored pencils, 8 ct. watercolors with a brush, 30 sheets of colored paper, school glue, scissors and a plastic storage case with an organizing tray. It even has a built in easel to make it easy for kids to create pictures.

Wee Can Too Edible Art Supplies {Keeping Kids Creative Sponsor Spotlight}

It is important to encourage creativity in your kids no matter what age they are, but some products simply aren't safe when it comes to infants and toddlers. I'm sure at some point every parent has had an incident where their little ones put something in their mouths that they shouldn't have... I know we have on more than one occasion. So the question is, how do you allow your 6 month old or even your 1 year old to be creative worrying about them sticking their fingers covered with toxic paint in their mouth? The answer... Wee Can Too edible art supplies!

Wee Can Too art supplies are made with food-based organic ingredients so they're 100% safe for those curious little Picasso's! You can allow your 1 year old to finger paint without worrying that they'll stick their fingers in their mouths because that's exactly what Wee Can Too products were made for.

Luckily, we are past those stages in life but I was still very excited when Wee Can Too offered to send us a few art supplies to try out. We received the Naturally Safe Tempera Paint and the Veggie Sidewalk Chalk to review.

Nutrisystem Weigh-In Week #18

It's been an extremely stressful few weeks in our house and because of that weight loss and blogging has kinda taken a back burner. You may have noticed that I skipped my Nutrisystem weigh-in last week and I apologize for that! Unfortunately sometimes life just gets in the way!

Two weeks ago I was so close to my next milestone and I thought for sure I would have made it by now but all of this stress has set me back. You see, everyone manages stress in their own way and my way just happens to be eating! Now I know I should go for fruits or veggies but I always manage to go for the unhealthy stuff and because of that I managed to gain close to 2 pounds last week (UGH!).

Well, it's a new week and although the stress on the homefront hasn't exactly subsided yet I have decided that I'm not going to let it stop me! I buckled down and managed to get back to the same exact weight I was 2 weeks ago at my weigh-in... Still so close to that 20 pound mark and I am determined to reach it by next week!
