So, how do I say this? I think I need to slow down and focus on what is most important to me. It's hard for me to know what makes the cut and what doesn't. It is also hard for me to say no. I tend to think "I can do this." But what isn't hard for me is to know that I have 4 kiddos who need a mother that is not stretched too thin and has made them her top priority. So, where does this leave us? I'm not quitting - I don't think I could ever quit. I'm just stepping back for a bit.
I did just start on instagram, which I love and am still trying to figure it out. It is like easy blogging! I am @laurel_macd and would love to see you over there!
Thanks for understanding.

One week later and we still have SO much candy. Because of our allergies, most of the candy cannot be eaten. We are selling most of our candy to a local dentist, which helps get it out of the house. Still, there is candy that remains. And it is the sticky type - jolly ranchers, laffy taffy, smarties, dum dums, gobstoppers. You know, the kind that your dentist asks you to avoid!
We were given products from Crest Pro-Health to review and what a review we have.
First off, the toothpaste has Jake and the Neverland Pirates on it. Perfect for my little 5 year old who dressed up as Izzy from that show for Halloween.
Yes, she was so excited to use it the first time that she put her costume on!
We like these products because they are designed for kids. There are older products for my older daughter, who doesn't need or want characters on her toothbrush. The flossers are easy to use. The mouthwash doesn't burn. It is these simple things that make oral care much less of a fight and more of something to look forward to!
