Just in the nick of time

Listerine Oral Care and Reach gave us the chance to take the Oral Care 2 week Challenge.

You see The Boy had recently decided that brushing his teeth just wasn't for him.
Have you ever tried to pry the mouth open of a child who didn't want their teeth brushed?
It's not pretty. And leads to both of you having a melt down.
Our challenge was to brush, floss and rinse every day, twice a day. I thought "yea, right". But I was desperate. I needed something, anything!
So they sent us cool Reach tooth brushes, a calendar with TEETH STICKERS, floss and rinse.
I had nothing to loose.
When he opened the box and saw the stickers and cool tooth brushes, The Boy wanted to start right then and there. Who knew a box of tooth brushes and some stickers would be all it took to get the kid to brush his teeth? or will give you more information about the challenge.
I can tell you it's one of the best things we've ever done. The Boy can't wait to show you how "squeaky clean" his teeth are after using the cool tooth brush. THANK YOU Listerine & Reach!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by on behalf of Listerine and Reach and received Listerine and Reach products for the Oral Care Challenge and a gift certificate for to thank me for taking the time to participate

All is Quiet on the home front

But I guess that's not anything to complain about.
The 10 month old's Bmom is working hard on her case plan. Harder than I've seen any parent work before. It's something new to me.
I was cleaning off our hard drive and found photos of her son we had in care about 5 yrs ago. She lost him because of some very bad choices she made. but I still felt it would be a wonderful gift to give her the pictures we had of her son at the time we had him. I know she will love them and cherish them.
The 18 month old I'm afraid will be with us for some time to come. Bad choices all around by this poor baby's Bparents. I'm not too sure they'll make it.
Now I will spend my time trying hard to organize and not misplace my mind while trying to get ready for our long awaited Disney Cruise. I don't know who is more excited me or The Boy.
It's just plain boring around here. Of which, I will not complain!

Life In A Small Town or If Mama's ruled the World

I had to go down to the local police dept yesterday, for a little bitness. Nothing exciting I assure you.
From the counter you can see inside one of the holding rooms. From my vantage point I could only hear voices, no faces. But I could hear every word.
Evidently Jimmy (names have been changed to protect the guilty) was just picked up for being a little too drunk. Having fallen asleep right outside the police station. Jimmy was none to happy to be there. It seems he was now running late for work and was going to be in alot of trouble, it seems he has a problem with lateness. So he was trying to leave the holding room & go about his business. but the sheriff was having none of that. Other cops were milling around & didn't seem too concerned about Jimmy. Jimmy kept saying, "Tommy, just let me go to work". Finally after many attempts to get Jimmy to sit down and act right, Tommy the sheriff said, "Jimmy, I saw your mama at church Sunday and she had her whole Sunday school class praying for you. Now are going to sit down and shut up or am I gonna have to call your mama to come down here and talk to you?"
(Jimmy was about 40, by the way)
Jimmy said," No, don't call her, she's on her way to women's Bible study. She'll be mad if I keep her from that. But could you just hurry with the paper work? I gotta get to work"
While Tommy was doing whatever he does. Jimmy said,"That sure was a good sermon on Sunday, wasn't it?"
I didn't get to hear the rest, dang it. I'd already stood at the counter waaaay too long after being helped, just so I could hear if Jimmy's mama was coming down to talk to him and if he got to go to work or not.
I started thinking. Maybe if all these crime ridden cities told the people they arrested they were going to call their mama's to come down and talk to them, there would be alot less crime in the world.

Caffeine...How much does it take to kill you?

It's fun to find out.
I don't think I'll be drinking 260 pepsis anytime soon.
