Arriba, Cerados, Y Seguros

Anthony is growing older and as time has passed I have had to learn how prevent accidents from happening in our home. Kids are “new here”, and their minds are so inquisitive of things especially things that they shouldn't be getting into…especially in the laundry room. Accidents can happen and this is why Tide® is encouraging parents to 

Keep Them Up, Keep Them Closed, Keep Them Safe.” Ideally somewhere that isn't visible in my home works. If my son hasn't seen it, than he's not thinking about it. If you have cabinets or storage space I encourage you to do the same. Store them above where the kids can’t reach and close the door so they aren't visible and wondering about it.

As much as I love cute clothes, and be out and be social - reality hits when it’s laundry day. And with all the work I have going on, I sometimes forget that I need to wash my favorite clothes separately. Now, I don't have to worry, thanks to Tide® PODS™ + Downy®. Tide® PODS™ + Downy® is the first detergent packet designed to clean and protect clothes from stretching or losing their color. These chemist are so high tech now, that I no longer have to measure and / or forget to add Downy® to the wash because the PODS™ include it….genius! 1 packet, laundry done!

My mother often comes to visit and I love my mom, but as she is getting older her vision is worsening and when she visits she LOVES to wash clothes. I have a lot of clothes and not to mention a lot of cute colorful clothes that she accidentally throws in the wash with not so colorful clothes - luckily for me the Pods contain ingredients that are suitable for fabrics that are traditionally cannot be washed with fabric softeners but can benefit from conditioning, so it’s a win-win! My mom loves the convenience of just grabbing a packet and tossing it into the washer machine. It’s safe, convenient and we’re all happy.

#TimeToSmile Oral Health Month

#TimeToSmile Oral Health Month

“This post was sponsored by Colgate-Palmolive”

I’ve partnered with Colgate to spread the importance of a healthy smile for Oral Health Month #TimeToSmile #SonrisaColgate.

One of the most important things we can do as parents is teach our children the importance of oral hygiene. Anthony- my son, is now 7 years old, he has lost 3 teeth so far and slowly his permanent teeth are coming in. This parenting stuff isn't easy, we don’t have a manual on how to be the best mommy and daddy but we sure have the wits and knowledge to know that a healthy smile is important. I love to spend quality time with my son and the more things I can do with him means the more I can teach him. This month we are focusing on Oral Health. He knows the fundamentals - brushing after meals, flossing these pretty little gums of his daily and his favorite part of the routine….mouth wash!

One thing that I enjoy doing with Anthony is brushing his teeth. Yes, he’s 7. Yes, he’s a little big boy and should already know how to brush but I don't mind doing it for him. At the same time that I am brushing, I am showing him how to brush, telling him the importance of a healthy white smile and I am building a trusting bond with my child. I love how he shows me his pearly whites after every brush.

Did you know that according to a Colgate-Palmolive/Toluna Survey in March 2016, Hispanics report oral health issues at higher rates than the general U.S. population? Yup, 87% of the Hispanic parents surveyed know that early oral care education is very important for their children, however 59% think they can do a better job of it. As a busy mom, I can relate. I am glad I partnered with Colgate to remind me and my family of the importance of a clean mouth. 

Colgate is committed to improving oral health for everyone to have a future they can smile about. Colgate and the American Dental Association (ADA) will continue partnering in the campaign “Oral Health Month: Share More Time, Share More Smiles”.I hope you do the same with your little ones. You can also help spread the word that for every image liked, shared, or posted on social media between June 1, 2017 and June 30, 2017 with the hashtag #TimeToSmile, Colgate will donate $1 (min. $10k, max. $40k) to the ADA Foundation’s Give Kids A Smile® program that provides free oral health care, education and screening to underserved children. 

Colgate, in partnership with the ADA, also offers bilingual oral health education materials such as shareable infographics, activity sheets for kids, and other oral care resources on Bilingual videos, articles, downloadable family activities will also be available on the ADA’s site
