I think there are some of my kids who wish the above were on the menu @ the restaurant de la Full House. I intercepted all three of these delicious tubes of toothpaste within a matter of an hour. How they are getting their hands on this stuff is beyond me. To try and kick them of their toothpaste habit I introduced them to Kefir and not as in Sutherland. I'm pretty sure that was the trick that helped them to forget about the toothpaste. Have you ever had Kefir? If not, you really should because it's quite tasty and apparently it is a miracle drink. Actually besides it tasting good I really wouldn't know about its health promises and I was half way joking about the miracle drink part but if you believe google then the below are some of the things it had to say:
The benefits of consuming kefir regularly in the diet according to Kefir.net
Easily digested, it cleanses the intestines, provides beneficial bacteria and yeast, vitamins and minerals, and complete proteins. Because kefir is such a balanced and nourishing food, it contributes to a healthy immune system and has been used to help patients suffering from AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome, herpes, and cancer. Its tranquilizing effect on the nervous system has benefited many who suffer from sleep disorders, depression, and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).
The regular use of kefir can help relieve all intestinal disorders, promote bowel movement, reduce flatulence and create a healthier digestive system. In addition, its cleansing effect on the whole body helps to establish a balanced inner ecosystem for optimum health and longevity.
Kefir can also help eliminate unhealthy food cravings by making the body more nourished and balanced. Its excellent nutritional content offers healing and health-maintenance benefits to people in every type of condition.
I wonder if Kefir will help my little girl sleep in every morning......
Then we were eating dinner I was trying to sell the idea to the kids on why they should eat all of their dinner. "If you eat all of your dinner you will have lots of energy to go to Disneyland" or "If you eat all of your food you will grow big and strong like Momma & Daddy". Then my little girl said, "If I eat all my dinner will I grow a big tummy like you too?" Hmmm....I really wasn't ever offended by her question but it all made sense especially after I saw her playing Mommy with her baby doll. I will forever be honored to have her refer to my big tummy because I think she thinks that anything that has to do with Mom is A-1. We'll just let her keep thinking that way. Although I do have to say I think she just came programmed with mothering instincts.
