Learning About Keeping Our Teeth Healthy!

Well, I picked my daughter up from school today and was delighted to see she had a big smile on her face, literally. I just had to laugh, she looked adorable and hilarious all at the same time.

I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to share my daughter's healthy smile and a few facts she learned today about keeping her teeth healthy.

Each child was given an activity booklet. The back page was covered with items that could either harm or help your teeth. My daughter was to circle each item she thought would help promote a healthy mouth or cross out the items that could potentially do harm. She did a great job circling things like toothpaste, a toothbrush, the dentist, a carton of milk and so on. Of course like any good 4yr. old she left the picture of a piece of candy without an x or a circle. When I asked her about it she said, "Mom, (little giggle)candy is good for your teeth."

Hearts a-plenty: Valentine Gift Recommendations from Mommies with Style

For your 5ish-year-old: While my 6-year-old still hasn’t lost a tooth, he’ll be prepared to lose one because he’s getting a pillow from The Wiggly Tooth Factory.
Its an adorable mini-pillow-sized tooth with a pocket, available in fun fabrics with a so cute face. Someday (and likely, his dentist predicts, close to his 7th birthday) he’ll hide his tooth in the pocket to be replaced by a magical toothfairy (who already has a stack of golden dollars, hidden away.)

Anyway, I know its a little close to Valentine’s Day, but this one is so cute that I had to mention it. So order now. Because even if you don’t gift on Valentine’s Day, you just never know when you’re going to need a Tooth Fairy Pillow, and you don’t want to be without!

A special thanks to the ladies at the Mommies with Style Blog for taking the time to mention my tooth fairy pillows on
