I am not being paid for this entry. Nor did I receive a free sample to test it, as so many others are getting lucky to do.
I am however, telling you that I paid full price for a hygiene item I saw advertised, just because I wanted to see if it worked. I guess Listerine made a product similar but it got recalled. The one we have is by Orajel Kids. It even has Scooby Doo on the cover...one one Noah's favorites at the moment. It is a product that helps kids to brush their teeth more effectively.
I was lax in getting Noah to learn to brush his teeth the right way. I let him use the toddler, safe to swallow, toothpaste until he turned six a few weeks ago. I know it was wrong, but it was just easier.
So he finally learned how to spit.
Then I saw this in my Parents magazine. What a great idea. So I showed it to Noah and he was so excited. I was planing to wait for it to go on sale, but I decided to go ahead and try it.
Noah literally RAN inside at 3:00 in the afternoon to brush his teeth and try it.
First he swished it around in his mouth for 30 seconds
Then he had to see what his blue mouth looked like
Then came the regular brushing (and spitting)
Notice Aaron standing by watching...he's still too young
And after a few checks, all clean.
The kid is BEGGING to brush his teeth at least three times a day. I am absolutely willing to feed this fetish for awhile. I figure by the time the novelty wears off, he will be an expert at teeth brushing and have established the twice a day habit that I have been lacking in from the day they were born.
A lot to gain from $4.99.
