You don't really want to know this, but I will tell you anyhow

I admit that we struggle with reminding our children to brush their teeth. We can barely remember all things important to survival, toothbrushing is not as high on the priority list as eating and sleeping quite frankly. Well, yesterday Reece had a bout with a stomach bug that made him …

"Mom look at this!"
