Yeah.... We're still alive!

I've had a few personal requests for a new post. I admit, I've been a horrible blogger. Blame the kids. Blame the dog. Blame summer and traveling! Blame the fact that I'm working again and actually sleeping by 11pm rather than up all hours of the night. Just dont blame laziness. Although that does play a small role.

Rather than be all wordy, I'm going to take the lazy visual route and post some new pics of our summer so far.

Me and my Wee Three

He was watching a worm try and escape the container while fishing.

We've done a lot of fishing... and bobber losing.

There is plenty more. But I will save those for another day.

Wordless Wednesday: Excuse Edition

Please pardon our very noticeable absence.
We have been very busy:

consuming mass quantities of sugar

trying to figure out how to escape

kissing girls behind trees

digging the daddys eye out

starting our lumberjack career 

ordering Dad around after not seeing him for 8 weeks

tasting nature

mastering the ultimate "Cheese" face

Also mastering looking more innocent than we really are

smiling nervously after getting caught picking out nose

and trying to figure out how to become a fish

Maybe... Just Maybe... Things will return to normal around here soon.          Maybe.

BrytonPick Review

Remember all those post where I talk about how completely different my oldest 2 kiddos are? How they never like the same thing and can never agree on any thing? Well we finally found something they both like!

The Bryton Pick is is a string-free, portable and reusable dental space cleaner. The flexible edges are as thin as dental floss. Designed for use after every meal, BrytonPick brings relief to an everyday problem by easily removing food stuck between the teeth. Also, it replaces all improvised and un-hygienic "items" used in an attempt to remove pieces of food from between teeth, such as: paper clips, business cards, matches, or finger nails.

How totally random, right? But they do! We received one of these little bad boys to try out and I was actually jealous that I agreed to let them try it instead of me. The recommeded age is 10. My kids are 9.5 and 6.5. Of course I did not leave them unnattended. NO teeth brushing is unattended after the incident involving a full tube of toothpaste, hair spray, hand soap and a "food fight" style war. Ugh... I digress...

The directions were super easy to follow and I never had to try and pin the kids down to "floss" their teeth. They're reusable, recycleable, and Affordable.

I have since picked up a 3 pack of these at my local pharmacy and use them myself. I keep one in the bathroom, one in the diaper bag and one in my truck. NO excuse not to floss anymore. Our dentists will be so proud! I highly recommend.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make your children wear helmets. This could have been so much worse without one.
