The Listerine Reach Challenge, Are You Ready?

This challenge could not have come at a better time for this household.
Why do you say that, you ask?

Take a look:
That's right. The 5yo lost his first tooth (his first tooth to come in as well..I'm distraught but that's another post).

My family and I were challenged by Listerine and Reach to improve our oral health.
I was up for it and since what I say goes, so was my family.

The first thing the Cheeks wanted to try was his new toothbrush that Reach provided.  It's a Batman toothbrush.  Perfect for the Superhero obsessed child that he is.  The piece de resistance:

Not only was there a picture of Batman on the front but after I explained how mouthwash works (that you get to spit), Cheeks had enthusiam oozing out of his pores.

He has added mouthwash to his morning and nightly brushing routine.  It is going great!

For the rest of the family I informed them of a few things I learned:

    • Brushing your teeth alone misses the germs in 75 percent of your mouth.
  •       15% of people do not kiss their loved ones because of how bad there teeth are.  
  • Nearly 75% of people suffer from gingivitis & do not realize it!

Now they needed more convincing, so I gave them all new toothbrushes, courtesy of Reach and then I showed them this:

Another irrestable item to this family of boys.

So we have all agreed to start new habits by brushing, flossing and mouthwashing.  From the oldest (ahem, me) down to the youngest (Cheeks).  We even have a cool chart that Listerine & Reach provided.  This is keeping Cheeks on track & when he has completed a whole week, he will get a reward.  Of course, something that you do not eat.

I challenge you to do the same:

Check out the challenge yourself over here : CHALLENGE

Let me know though, do you brush & floss & rinse regularly anyway? Or will this be something new for you?  Leave me a comment.

*While I was compensated for this post by The Motherhood, all opinions are 100% mine*


Congratulations!!! I like the fact that you're using mouthwash too. Mouthwash has become extremely underrated in society today. It does an amazing job at cleaning and destroying germs and bacteria that your tooth brush can't get to.

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
