Sponsored: Move to the “Head” of the Class – Visit ExpertAdviceOnLice.com for Head Lice Resources

The below content is sponsored by Sanofi Pasteur’s Headfirst! Expert Advice on Lice campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.     Unfortunately, head lice are common in elementary schools – about one out of every 100 elementary school children becomes infested. Most parents would agree, the letter home informing of a head lice outbreak is not a welcome sight. The question of “What do I do?” is common….

Apothederm™ is a high tech line of skin care products specializing in peptide technology. Their patented SmartPeptides™ are designed to target specific skin problems like crow’s feet, laugh lines or stretch marks. I was approached to try out their product not too long ago and while I normally would have turned it away (I have just never been into all the beauty and skin products before), but the reality of age has caught up with me with a vengeance and has…

LISTERINE Oral Care Challenge

LISTERINE Oral Care Challenge

My girls and I have been participating in the OCTOBER ORAL CARE CHALLENGE from Listerine and Reach. We received a box full of goodies, full of the different types of mouthwash, cool toothbrushes, and floss. I have teenagers so when I saw the kiddie tooth brushes and rinses, I was already thinking of which kids in the family I would pass them on to. But as soon as my big girls got home from school, they were all over the…
