September 1!

Hey, it's September First, so here's some of this and that...because I've been kind of lax in posting lately.

Son likes second grade so far. He's doing well on his papers and such, and has only had a little homework every night. The good thing about his teacher is that she sends home a homework sheet every night that tells us parents exactly what the kids need to do. This is a good thing, because what seven year old can remember what he needs to do? This sheet has to be signed by us parental figures and returned to school.

And! The kids have to do 15 minutes of reading every night. As a serious book addict, I'm loving this.

Son has also lost three teeth thus far (one at school yesterday). In an effort to stress good dental hygiene, I bought this pre-brush rinse from Listerine that shows kids where the plaque is on their teeth. For Son, at least, this has been a wise investment; he's really gotten in to brushing all the blue plaque from his teeth. Trust me, this is good, because if his adult teeth are anything like mine we'll be spending a small fortune in orthodontia, and no cavities would be like money in the bank.

So, it's September, a very busy month in the Groovy household. It seems like everyone in my family was born this month, including my younglings.

Happy Labor Day weekend!

Same here.....my sister, my husband and myself were also born in September. Now we all know what our parents were doing on New Years's Eve!

I'll have to check out that rinse. Does it taste good (to kids)? I just discovered the Branch has a ton of plaque on his teeth already and he isn't scheduled for the dentist for a couple of months. Wish I'd had that rinse earlier.

Son says it tastes good. It comes in several different flavors; he got "bubble burst" or somesuch.

Daughter gets that same problem, and we have to literally hold her down and brush her teeth!
