R.I.P. Dear Toothbrush...

My 3 year old daughter is growing up so fast.  She is quite the little lady, who is fashion forward and quite opinionated about almost everything.  She likes her hair just so, and thankfully likes to keep her face and hands clean.  

What do I say to my darling daughter.. when she comes up to me with a semi wet face, wearing a proud grin.

"Mommy, I just cleaned my face"

Me:  "Oh good job!"

"Mommy, I used your toothbrush!"

Me:  "You..used my toothbrush to clean your face????" I feel the bile rising in my throat.

"Uh huh"

Me:  "Why is your hair wet?"  I ask quickly.. noticing streaks.. of damp hair.

She touches her hair.  Smiling again.  "I used your toothbrush to brush my hair too"


This is one of those "Oh honey..I know you meant well.." moments.  You know the kind.. where you try to your child..they did so good trying to do right.. but.. not to ever use mommy's toothbrush again.  

Even as I type I am semi gagging at the thought of what other things my toothbrush has been used for... Goodbye dear toothbrush!

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
