In March, my feisty little Kiki turned 2 years old. She’s growing up so fast and that means she is hitting milestones like crazy. She picks out her own clothing every morning (dresses only please) and is trying to master her three-wheeled scooter. Her latest milestone is insisting on brushing her teeth by herself. Since we are a household that uses eco-friendly products, Tom’s of Maine® Silly Strawberry® Anticavity Toothpaste, 4.2oz toothpaste is usually what we reach for when teaching the girls to brush their teeth.
Kiki brushing her teeth means that she mostly just chews on the toothbrush, but with some coaxing from us she grins wide so we can help her brush. Like many of other tasks, we make it into a game with laughter and singing because two can be such difficult age as kids start to flex their independence. PROTIP: We always make sure she can reach the sink with her footstool and has time to “brush” herself before we assist her!
Milestones just remind me how she’s not a tiny baby anymore, but a full-fledged toddler with a mind and opinions of her own. And that, is a truly wonderful thing!
Why Tom’s of Maine toothpaste?
Tom’s of Maine have no preservatives or artificial coloring. They also do not test on animals or use animal ingredients and are produced in the Unites States (yes, you guessed it, Maine!). Tom’s of Maine offers several other natural products like mouthwash, bar soap and deodorant- these items can be found on www.tomsofmaine.com. Tom’s is available at Walmart (check the very top of the toothpaste fixture!) and they are hosting several demonstrations, you can check here to see if they have one in your neighborhood.
Does anyone else find toddler milestones to be as bittersweet as I do? Do you use natural products like the ones from Tom’s of Maine?
