This post brought to you by Tom's of Maine. All opinions are 100% mine.
Every morning before school, we deal with a monster. It's an almost 7 year old who refuses to brush his teeth. He will stand at the sink, with a towel around his neck and tooth brush in his hand and do nothing. The clock keeps ticking, getting closer to the time that we absolutely must be out the door. It's rough, it's stressful, and it's driving me nuts!
When I was asked if I wanted to review Tom's of Maine Silly Strawberry toothpaste, I laughed out loud. No really, I did! We've tried everything, would trying another toothpaste work?
Silly Strawberry has no artificial colors, sweeteners, animal ingredients, or preservatives. It's an all-natural, pretty tasty toothpaste (as a mom I'm obligated to try everything first to prove my point). And something more, 10% of all profits go right back to the community and helping others.
It was worth a shot. We put some on his toothbrush and told him he had to try it. He put up a fight, like always, and I figured we were done and walked away. A minute or two later I returned to check on him, and he was brushing his teeth! He said, "This is pretty good!" and went back to brushing.
So maybe we have a winner! I know I like it - with all the news lately of preservatives in our food, I'm ready to switch many of our everyday items to all natural or organic varieties!
On March 14th at 7:30 PM EST. Kristi Yamaguchi will be reading her new children’s book called It’s A Big World, Little Pig. By attending the Silly Strawberry Story Hour, you will have the chance to receive a free sample of Tom’s of Maine Silly Strawberry, and a copy of Kristi’s new book!

Does anyone else deal with a rough morning? Have you had any success with switching things up?
