Protect Your Teeth and Gums From All Those Sweets and Treats

It is the time of year where we all tend to over indulge a bit. Halloween candy, Thanksgiving pie, and Christmas cookies will all soon be abundantly flowing.  I don't know about you, but I find them a bit difficult to resist.

There is nothing wrong with a little indulgence here and there, but be sure not to neglect the pearly whites!  Sugar can cause cavities and destroy your teeth, so it is important to keep your teeth thoroughly clean.

Doctor Plotka's Mouthwatchers are unique teeth cleaning brushes.  They have floss like bristles that are 10x thinner than an average toothbrush bristle.  The bristles are soft and gentle.  It really does feel like I just came from the dentist after using this toothbrush.

Another great thing about the Mouthwatchers tooth brush is that it costs less than $5.00 and its electric version is less than $25!  There is also a travel version for $5.99.  I personally feel like they are worth more than that. The brushes can be purchased individually or i…

My Interview with Ella Ballentine from Anne of Green Gables

Ella Ballentine is well know for her role as Anne Shirley in the classic Anne of Green Gables.  I was given the opportunity to interview Ella recently.  Here is my interview:
How has your stage acting helped you in your current career?
Stage acting really helped me develop my tools I use as an actor. I started with stage, not film, so it gave me an introduction into what it would mean to be an actor. I guess also because mustical theater has many songs and dances you have to learn, it helped me now when I have to learn so many lines.
How do you or did you relate to your character Anne Shirley?
I get that question a lot and I find as times goes by I always have different answers.  I think while shooting the first film Anne and I were very outgoing, curious young girls.  I was always bubbly and excited to meet new people.  I found shooting the second two films I related to Anne much more than before.  Her dynamic changes with her relationship with people.  she has struggles balancing fri…

Giveaway: Birdy Boutique's Car Seat Poncho Promotes Car Seat Safety

Child seat safety is very serious and there are some things that parents may not know.  For example, were you are that you're NOT supposed to buckle your child over a winter coat in their car seat? Most winter coats add about 4 inches of bulk to the car seat harness straps.  This can leave the harness too loose to be effective in a crash, leaving children at risk to be ejected from the car seat. A simple solution is Birdy Boutique's Car Seat Poncho.  This poncho is smartly designed by a group of women from Michigan, to allow you to buckle your child safely into their car seats, because of its smart design.  This poncho simply goes on over the buckles and strap belts. It is very easy to maneuver the car seat process with the Car Seat Poncho.  Simply sit your child in their car seat, flip the back of the poncho over the top of the car seat, while holding the front of the poncho, buckle your child into their seat, and then place the poncho over the buckled seat belts. The poncho is a…

Great Pet Products from Chewy

I love the convenience of and love that they carry all of the brands that I buy for my pet.  Another great thing about Chewy is that I can save money by buying in bulk if I choose to do so.
Chewy carries all of the popular brands that I buy in my local grocery and big box stores.  Every time I place an order with Chewy, it arrives to my home within a day or  two.  That is impressive.
Chewy not only carries dog and cat brands, they also carry products for birds, reptiles and more.  They carry food, accessories, toys and medications for pets.
This month, as a Chewy Ambassador, I chose 2 items that will be very useful to my pet family.  

This Frisco car hammock is perfect for taking my pet on rides, without having to worry about their hair shedding on my seats and carpet in my vehicles.  It is easy to set up and is machine washable.  It is designed to fit most vehicles and can be used with pet vehicle restraints.  It is comfy too!

15 Things You Should Give Up to Be a Happy Parent

You want to be a happy parent—but your countless responsibilities make this goal challenging! Don’t lose hope just yet. I have a list of 15 things that keep you from happy parenting. Read through them. Be honest with yourself. Then let them go. Allow yourself to be a happy parent for your child—and yourself!

By Carol Tuttle,  author of The Child Whisperer
*Here’s a list of 15 things you should give up—and then watch your happiness take off:

1. Give up “supposed to”

We were conditioned by our own early family experiences to believe that parenthood or childhood are supposed to look a certain way. But if you hold onto the way things are “supposed” to be, you may miss enjoying how they actually are. Be willing to question what you prioritize as a parent and why.

2. Give up keeping score
What does your mental score-card keep track of: which parent does more? Who’s most consistent? Which mom contributes most in your child’s class? Who’s most involved in your homeschool group?

Keeping score…
