Make Brushing More Fun with Minions!

Being the “single aunt” in the family can sometimes be challenging since you’re obliged to babysit the kids from time to time. Last March, my nephews from Australia stayed with us for 2 weeks and that made me the official babysitter when the parents are away. It was not easy because I don’t have a kid of my own yet (unless you count my dogs as my kids) and both of them are boys (so extra playful). I did all, from preparing food, bathing, playing with the boys and toothbrush.

What I noticed is that my nephews just like doing stuff together and loves cartoons. Making kids brush their teeth can sometimes be challenging especially when they are not in the mood. So our solution to make brushing time fun for the kids and the family is to do it together. Make it seem like a fun game you can all do and don’t forget to bring their favorite cartoon toy with them of course.

That is what I love about Colgate’s Minions toothbrush and Minions toothpaste. Because kids loves “The Minions” and it can add fun to their brushing. Bringing in some minion vibe in their boring old toothpaste and toothbrushes (plus the Bubble Fruit flavor looks yum!!!).

So next time you're in search for a fun way to do tooth brushing, don't forget Colgate's Minion Oral Care Pack. Available in two variants:

Colgate Minions Kids 2-5 Years Old (Junior) Oral Care Pack       
Colgate Minions Kids 5-9 Years Old (Youth) Oral Care Pack

Happy Brushing with Colgate!!!!

Photos of a Cute Dachshund Puppy That Stole our Heart

A week ago we met a charming Dachshund named Chelsea whom we will be fostering until my Brother pick her up to take home to Baguio City. Chelsea was a happy pup with a pure heart. She loves to jump around, chase balls, play with squeaky toys and sleep. I’m used to taking care of Dachshund dogs since I already have two of my own. What makes Chelsea extra special for me is that she’s my life partner’s first actual puppy to take care of. My partner was not used to being around dogs and just got accustomed to it because of me.  Chelsea is her first puppy love and we even had conversations where we consider of keeping her for us. But Chelsea was destined for someone else and it breaks our heart to let her go.

Today is the last day we’ll be spending with the cute Dachshund puppy that stole our heart, so we decided to go on a picnic with her on a local park. Tomorrow she will be with her family and my prayers are that she fits in happily to them and may they have lots of patience and love for this little one.

This blog post is intended to be a precious memory for me where I get to share our Chelsea’s photos as she sits on my lap and slowly fall asleep. Happiness and big love comes in small package :)
