We are always reading in our house, so we are super excited to be a #PenguinKidsPartner and share a new book by @robbtopp, called Wink. ⁣
⁣
This hilarious and heart-wrenching story is about surviving middle-school with an unthinkable diagnosis, rare eye cancer. It’s a story of survival and finding the music, magic and laughter in life’s weirdness. ⁣
⁣
Iyla is about half way through it and can’t put it down. She loves it because it shows that no matter what your situation, you can make the best of it! I love the message it shares. I’m always telling the girls to embrace their “weird” because it’s what makes them unique. The world would be such a boring place if we were all the same. ⁣
⁣
If your middle-reader is looking for a new book, we highly recommend Wink from @PenguinKids. It’s available now! ⁣

“What if we capture the beauty of the whole world in ONE big, bold book? A book that will transport readers to countries across the globe, one bedtime story at a time?” AD: What if I told you that book exists? The Book of Cultures is a 120 page book featuring 30 illustrated stories with characters from different countries, alongside activity pages with puzzles and fun facts. With everything going on in the world, now is the time to teach your children how important it is to embrace diverse perspectives, be tolerant and compassionate and understand how to cooperate with people from all corners of the planet. We are all human beings and we all have so much to teach one another. The Book of Cultures is available for the next 15 days on Kickstarter. It’s perfect for ages 3+, and all kids at heart.  @worldwidebuddies #bookofcultures  Pre-order your copy now: www.worldwidebuddies.com  #bookclub #bookobsessed #bookpic #booksbooksbooks #booklife #bookworms #bookstoread #summerjam #summer2020 #readingisfun #readinglist #readingtime #readersofinstagram #ilovereading #instaread #teachkindness #teachthemyoung #colorsplash #streetartist #streetart #wynwoodwalls #miamiart #kickstarter #diversity #diversityandinclusion #loveoneanother #inthistogether #oneworld #beautifulcolors

It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣
⁣
What do you miss most?⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts.

After spending this past week looking at our bills, we realized that our mobile bill is way too high. We need to be able to stay connected, but we don’t need to spend a fortune to do it. We just switched Super Dad over to @mintmobile. ⁣

There are so many reasons to love Mint Mobile (and not just because Ryan Reynolds is the owner… yes, that Ryan Reynolds)! Mint Mobile lets you keep your number. They offer nationwide coverage and their 4G LTE runs on the nation’s fastest, most advanced networks. The company is online only so they cut out the middlemen and can pass the savings onto us! ⁣

Are Your Teeth Getting the Care They Need?

Life gets hectic.  Sometimes it feels like we don’t have enough time in the day to get everything done so we may choose to put our self-care aside to take care of other things like our kids or work.  And while we may put other people’s needs ahead of our own, there is one thing we can’t neglect… our teeth.  We are excited to partner with the American Dental Association to share our daily routine as well as some recommendations when it comes to your oral care. It’s time to get mouth healthy.

Setting a routine helps me to stay consistent when it comes to self-care and staying healthy.  Just like we set a time for breakfast, lunch and dinner, we should also set a time for self-care.  As role models for our kids, we need to make sure that we are doing everything we ask them to do. If they see that we are doing something daily, they will do it and it will become a natural routine.

When we wake up in the morning, we brush our teeth, drink a glass of water and wash our face.  I make sure to use a facial lotion with SPF, to protect my skin from the harsh Florida sun.  While I wait for my daughter at the bus stop, I have a few minutes to floss.  Spending those few minutes wisely makes a huge difference.

During the late afternoon, we walk around the neighborhood to get our daily steps in, shower and prepare and eat a healthy dinner.  Just before bed, we brush our teeth again, use our antiseptic mouth rinse, wash up, read a bit and go to sleep. Knowing that we have taken care of our body, mind and teeth helps us to rest easier.  Plus, good oral health habits lead to better visits to our family dentist.

ADA Recommendations.

Do you ever wonder if you’re doing everything you can to make sure your teeth are getting the proper care?  The ADA has some recommendations:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
  • Clean between your teeth daily
  • Eat a healthy diet that limits sugary beverages and snacks
  • See your dentist regularly for prevention and treat of oral disease
  • Drink fluoridated water
  • Don’t use tobacco of any kind
  • Avoid oral piercings

american dental association, ada, mouth healthy, mouth healthy, teeth, healthy teeth, home oral care, ada recommendations, ada approved, dental hygiene, daily routine, family blog, family blogger, mom blog, mom blogger, 2018

One of the most important things to us is to make sure we choose dental products with the ADA Seal of Acceptance. This Seal lets us know that they are safe for us and for our family.  So, all our products, even the gum we chew, have this important Seal.

Get Mouth Healthy.

While we have mastered our daily routine, remember that each smile is unique. Your routine should be too. Speak to your dentist and create a home oral care routine that is right for you and your family.

When it comes to oral care, what is most important to you? Comment below and let us know!

    Thanks much for this post! Healthy teeth and gums is really important. Thanks for the tips and reminders. Now, I really need to push myself for to get an insurance for my teeth since it’s very expensive to see a dentis regularly. I wish I could go back the time and take care of my teeth. I’m not confident to smile because my teeth are not aligned. Brushing everyday is not enough. But those things you mention helps a lot.

    Oral hygiene is critically important. It not only affects the health of our mouths but our appearances as well. The practices you outlined are invaluable to oral health. I try to brush my teeth twice a day, I use floss and i visit the dentist twice a year. I with need to put limits sugary beverages and snacks however.
