Good morning! How do your mornings go? Now that school is in session, our morning routine starts earlier and with a smile!
Our Morning Routine Starts Earlier and with a Smile!
We have a Kindergartner in the house!! So you probably know what that means. Yep, it’s time for us to get up earlier to start our morning routine. We get up at the crack of dawn to begin our day…and yes, my little one does too. The minute he hears our footsteps he is up…and with a smile. Our school year has started off with a bang!! Hope yours has too.
I want the best for my family – that’s a given. We eat good, we snack healthy, we get adequate exercise, drink lots of water (no soda), we get a good night’s sleep, and we take care of our teeth!
I honestly thought I’d never switch toothpaste from what I used since childhood. I was a stickler for things like that until a couple of years ago. I’ve done a lot of research on what’s good and what’s not, now I’ve become a little “crunchy” and that’s a good thing! If I want the best for my family, I will need to stick to natural ingredients as much as I can. That’s why we use Tom’s of Maine in our home.
Tom’s of Maine has been our choice for toothpaste for at least 2 yrs now. Why? Because of its natural ingredients. The first I heard of Tom’s natural toothpaste, I bought Tom’s of Maine® Silly Strawberry® Anticavity Toothpaste for my son. Brody loves his strawberry toothpaste and I love that it’s free of all the bad stuff. When Brody likes something, I don’t have to make him use it. I no longer have to tell Brody to sing his ABC’s while brushing his teeth. I hear him from a distance singing the song, and that makes me proud. He cares about his teeth as much as I do.
Tom’s of Maine® Oral Hygiene Products:
- Do not contain artificial colors, flavors, fragrances, preservatives
- No animal testing or animal ingredients
- Sustainable practices are a priority
- All ingredients are shared with the public
- Their toothpaste is made in Maine
*They make other natural products, such as deodorant, bar soap, and mouthwash.
Our morning routine starts out with eating breakfast, getting dressed, brushing our teeth, and then fixing our hair. Oh boy, Brody has got to fix his hair just right. What have I started here!!! He will not let me do it either. There’s a certain way he likes it and that’s it. I suppose I’ve taught him good hygiene with brushing his own teeth and wanting to have nice hair. Now if I can get him to wear the clothes I lay out for him!!
Capture life’s everyday moments with a smile.
And….we’re off to school like a herd of turtles!! Every day is a new day with our little one. He and I both have choices we make daily.
My mom always told me if you have 3 of something that’s a start of a collection. I think I’m in good shape here! Next, I’m going to try another variety of Tom’s of Maine deodorant and a few other items I haven’t tried yet.
Our Morning Routine Starts Earlier and with a Smile! Hope yours does too!!
