For awhile I have been saying that I would make our homemade toothpaste. Honestly, I knew that I needed to make our own. Or to at least find a healthier option than regular toothpaste. However, I also wanted the toothpaste to work. I know it is silly of me, but I have always been proud of my teeth. My parents taught me to take care of my teeth. They got braces for me so that I would have a straight strong beautiful smile. I was worried that if I just switched to any homemade toothpaste recipe that it would not be good enough to help maintain the health of my and my family's' teeth and gums. I also wanted the recipe to not have anything in it that my children shouldn't use. So I took my time with some research, speaking with the Dentist, and other people who made homemade toothpaste to make sure that I would be very happy with our homemade toothpaste recipe. I am so glad I did all this, because I am very happy with our new toothpaste. Another plus is that it is so simple!

This past month we have had some new experiences with our children. One thing that I have never experienced is a Spider Bite. I check my children over at least once a day when I am bathing them, getting them dressed, or undressing them. I try to keep up with all the bumps, bruises, scratches, and so forth. I think this is a common thing among parents. One Saturday my oldest was running around in her diaper. I noticed she had what looked like a mosquito bump coming up on her side. I asked he if it bothered her. She said, "No Mommy." I love her little voice, I smile thinking about it....
