I taught my child the importance of oral health care with LISTERINE® SMARTRINSE, as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #besweetsmart.  With 6 children in our home, it’s important that we set morning and nighttime routines.  In the mornings, they have “chores” that they complete.  These chores include brushing their teeth, brushing...

Last year I wrote about “Living with Multiple Sclerosis” and I left off needing to go in for more tests. Well, these last 12 months have been an emotional and physical roller coaster for me. Going into my annual appointment with my Neurologist, I was feeling great.   She said “you’re too healthy,” normally I would […]...

I remember how excited I was when I took my oldest son to go shopping for soccer gear.  I was officially a soccer mom.  Brian was super excited about his “chin” guards, new shoes and ball that he could kick all around the yard.  He was even more excited when he got his official uniform! […]...

I don’t know about your kids, but our kids love to play on their Samsung tablets, on the Playstation and on our iPhones.  I think the usage of technology is a lot higher now than it was when I was a kid, and that being the case, there is a higher need for our children to […]...
