Join Me: Project Organize Your ENTIRE Life

I found an absolutely amazing site today, where she’s got a pretty awesome challenge going on… The site is called Modern Parents Messy Kids, and the challenge is called – Project Organize Your ENTIRE Life. Sounds simple enough, right? Lol. But seriously – she takes on an enormous sounding challenge like that, and breaks it down into totally do-able tips. One of my favorites so far is the Mega Cleaning Action Plan. She links up to a seriously huge list of other resources, gives you realistic ideas to make a plan that will work for you, and makes it all actually seem kind of fun. {You know, if cleaning your house can be fun….} But honestly, the main challenge I have in my home is having enough time. Working on her projects will help any of us build better routines, which saves a ton of time = meaning less stress, and happier moms. What more can you ask for?rules for survival: parenting

Project Organize Your ENTIRE Life: Join Me!

I’m going to be making these challenges a part of my weekly routine starting this week. {Love her Parenting Survival Routines above. She’s so cleverly funny.} So, make sure to check out her site, and learn a little more about this project – then I’d LOVE to have some of you ladies follow along too! Every week I’ll take on a new part of the project, like Meal Planning, Routines for Kids, or the Mega Cleaning. I’ll link back to her amazing posts filled with info, and let you guys know what kind of progress I’m making. SUPER excited for this. I really think this is going to help me a ton.

Simple Routine to Brighten Your Family’s Smiles!

Tooth Brushing for Toddlers

Listerine Oral Care Challenge

Oral health is one of those things that you don’t think about a whole lot – Until there’s a problem. Things like cavities, and fillings, and gum disease are not just super painful, they can also be super expensive! I’m always looking for new “Solutions” – products, services, sites, and systems to simplify life, and make things better. When I heard about the Listerine Oral Care Challenge – it definitely sounded like something I wanted to check out!

How it works

The idea behind the challenge is simple – Start a routine of brushing, flossing, and rinsing twice a day for three weeks, and involve the whole family. Sounds easy enough, right? But once we committed to this, and started tracking it on the family calendar, I realized how often we used to skip a step or two. But this routine really is so simple, and so effective, that it’s a great addition to every families schedule!

Toothbrush, floss, and mouthwash

Awesome Products Make it Fun

To build some excitement for this challenge from Listerine, we were sent a big box of cool products – And with characters like Batman, Phineas and Ferb, and Barbie, these were a huge hit with the kids! {My favorite product? The Total Care Whitening Floss – totally different than any other floss I’ve ever tried. Super cool} So, armed with new brushes, fun rinse products, new floss, and great attitudes – We started the challenge 3 weeks ago. I’m happy to report that it was a total success!

Brighten Your Family’s Smiles!

Abby is almost 18 months, and her little teeth are filling it fast. She LOVES brushing her teeth – and as you can see in the picture above, she will steal any toothbrush she finds in the house, and wander around brushing!! We just upgraded her from her Baby Banana Toothbrush, to a new “Big Girl” Barbie toothbrush from Reach. She loves it – and I love that she makes it so easy to brush those little teeth! The boys thought it was super cool to use the Smart Rinse Mouthwash – since it actually tints the particles and germs in your mouth, so you see “proof” of it working in the sink after rinsing. And I’m happy that this challenge made brushing, flossing, and rinsing into a FUN new habit for us all!
