Thanksgiving dinner. We were turkey-ed out from slaughtering our turkeys recently so we decided to have a pork roast for dinner. I came out from doing the dinner dishes one evening and saw all the kids reading. I love seeing the kids read books. A beautiful site. A very cold day, but beautiful nonetheless.
Homemade toothpaste. If you are prone to canker sores, don’t buy toothpaste with Sodium Laurel Sulfate. It “causes” canker sores. And most toothpastes contain SLS. Sensodyne Pro Enamel doesn’t have SLS, nor does some of the Toms of Maine. Toms of Maine carries a strawberry toothpaste for kids that is clean.
My recipe for my own toothpaste that the kids love? Coconut oil, dolomite powder (calcium carbonate), baking soda, touch of vanilla and a couple of drops of stevia. Make sure they don’t EAT the toothpaste. : ) It’s yummy!
