Listerine Smart Rinse Challenge part 2

It's been 28 days since we started the Listerine Smart Rinse Sweet Smart Challenge and what a difference 28 days can make. Getting my kids to brush was second only to potty training in frustration. Why would anyone want to go in a diaper instead of the toilet? Why would anyone want to walk around with grime on their teeth? I couldn't answer that question so

Listerine Smart Rinse Sweet Smart Challenge

We are excited to be participating in the Listerine Smart Rinse Sweet Smart Challenge. Wow, what a mouthful! If you've read my blog for more than a year you might have read this little ditty about ex#2 accusing me of feeding our child epoxy. Don't worry, I didn't. We have a bit of a tartar problem. That's the royal 'we', I don't have a problem

Daughter Gets 5 Teeth Removed With Laughing Gas

Last week my daughter had to have 5 teeth removed. Apparently there is a little crowding going on and because she won't let her baby teeth fall out we had to have some of them removed. This is a video of the nurse (who was wonderful) prepping her for the surgery. Because Maddie is a little nervous about needles we decided that a little laughing

We’re Taking The Metro Dentalcare Two Week Challenge to Brighter Smiles!

Yep, we are up to the challenge. Metro Dentalcare is challenging Minnesota families to brush their teeth twice a day for two minutes each day. Sounds easy enough but if you have kids, getting them to brush their teeth can be a challenge in itself. Metro Dentalcare has given me this awesome care package to help me get my kids to brush their teeth. As

We’ve Lost Another Tooth

Some of you might remember back in April I wrote about the tooth that would not come out. Eventually it did come out and we celebrated the event. She lost another tooth not too long after the first one and it was a complete non issue. She was a pro at losing teeth. And that was it for a while. Her two top teeth were

The Tooth Fairy Dropped The Ball

My daughter lost her second tooth yesterday. It was not even remotely close to the drama we had with the first tooth in fact I didn't even know it was loose. She lost the tooth on her dad's watch but apparently she was inspired by her friend who just rips her loose teeth out. Daughter wedged a toothpick between her tooth and gum

The Tooth Came Out!

It finally happened, after months and months of agony, the tooth finally let go and fell out. I'm so proud, I feel as if my daughter just graduated from medical school or passed the bar. I still can't believe it actually happened. I was beginning to think the tooth had regrown roots and was forever going to be part of her. It all happened so

100 Days

No, not President Obama's first 100 days. It's been 100 days of the tooth. The tooth has still not fallen out. When it was first noticed that the tooth was loose it was exciting. We talked of the Tooth Fairy and money under the pillow. We talked about growing up. Which is, I think, were we lost her. The girl does not want to grow

The Tooth

A while back I mentioned that my daughter had a loose tooth. Her first loose tooth. I was somewhat emotional about the idea that my baby was growing up. Getting her real teeth was just a reminder to me that they don't stay young forever and I needed to enjoy what little time I had with her while she was young (before she
