Hello, blog-advisors! I need two suggestions from the world of the web. This post was actually written a year ago, and I kept missing the backwards WFMWs! But I'm still very interested in your replies.
1) My boys are completely dedicated to a particular brand of light soy chocolate milk, which has saved me as it has been a winter of runny noses and avoiding dairy to keep mucus production low. To my own surprise, after a bout of my own sickness, I realized I felt better without dairy too and am contemplating skipping it on a more routine basis. While some things will leave my diet permanently only with immense struggle (hello, pizza, it is you I crave the most), really, on a daily basis, it's the milk in my cereal that I have most frequently. Do you have a soy or rice or almond milk that you adore and have found to be a workable substitute?
2) On a lovey-dovey night recently, my four-year-old son and I were giggling as he was brushing his teeth and I said, "Let me see those pearly whites! You know that's what some people call teeth, because of their pearly-white color." And with the beautiful brown eyes only a four year old can muster, he looked lovingly at me and said, "Yeah! And they can call yours 'golden!'"
Um, Ouch. And I gave up soda and chocolate for Lent! And I don't drink coffee!
So apparently I should be in the market for a tooth whitener. Any you love?
My goldens and I thank you.
