5 Tips to a Healthier Mouth for Baby, Mommy and the Entire Family + a FREEBIE #healthytongue

We were at a ceremony at the kids' school and a familiar face sat in the row behind us.  A woman tapped my son on his shoulder to say "Hello."  It was our family dentist.

My kids have been going to the same dentist since we moved into our neighborhood over a decade ago and it's been fun watching our kids grow up together.  Her youngest daughter and our twin sons are in the same grade. She's helped keep our kids cavity free and she reinforces these good dental habit tips hubby and I share with our kids. 

1.  Brush your teeth at least 2 times a day
2.  Floss daily
3.  Protect your mouth with a mouthguard when playing  
4.  Minimize sugary treats and drinks.  Snack healthy.
5.  Fluoridated toothpaste and fluoridated water

When I was asked to review the TUNG Brush, I asked our family dentist what her thoughts were on tongue brushes.  I had never heard of a brush designed specifically for cleaning the tongue and guess what neither had she.  I always brushed my tongue with my toothbrush whenever I brushed my teeth and guess what, so did she.  

Our dentist told us the levels of bacteria on my tongue were way more than those on my teeth.  GROSS!!! 

Every time I brush my tongue with my toothbrush I gag.  The TUNG Brush is designed to clean your tongue without gagging.  It's wide shape helps prevent the dreaded "gag reflex".

TUNG recommends that we brush your tongue every time you brush your teeth and replace your TUNG brush every three months just as you would your toothbrush.

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
