A Promise Kept: Arm and Hammer Advanced White Brilliant Sparkle Toothpaste @bhg

On July 19, 2011, by Glenda Embree- BusyAtHome

In a society that constantly bombards us with the idea that “truth is relative”, (I disagree, by the way), it’s a refreshing thing to find a company that delivers what it promises.  That’s how I’m feeling about Arm and Hammer after four weeks of using their Advanced White Brilliant Sparkle Toothpaste.  They didn’t promise that [...]

I love anything that encourages early reading and helps to increase vocabulary in young children.  Memory verses, rhymes, songs and music are all elements that have been proven to help.  As a homeschooling family, we have employed all of them at various stages in our children’s educations.  It has been known for years that children [...]

On June 28, 2011, by Glenda Embree- BusyAtHome

I began  a new 4-week challenge with Arm and Hammer, last week.  I switched from my old brand of toothpaste and started using Arm and Hammer Advanced White Brilliant Sparkle Toothpaste.

On June 22, 2011, by Glenda Embree- BusyAtHome

Stop to consider the plastics that touch your family’s mouths and food every day — plastic bottles with water, soda, juices, sippy cups, baby bottles, plastic dinnerware, serving bowls, cereal bowls, drinking cups, coffee mugs, the containers we buy food in at the store. If those items all have a measure of BPA and the [...]

Grandma’s Apple Salad

On June 17, 2011, by Glenda Embree- BusyAtHome

One of my favorite memories of childhood is chopping apples in my grandma’s kitchen surrounded by my mom and all my aunts who were also working on various aspects of a family dinner.  It was a big kitchen, but it was always crowded because there were LOTS of us.  My dad was one of 11 [...]

Have You Built Your Tribe, Yet? A Newbie’s Perspective on Triberr

On May 22, 2011, by Glenda Embree- BusyAtHome

Well, I had a disastrous afternoon of panic, today, when the monitor SNAPPED off my laptop.  After several failed attempts to stuff metal parts and wires back inside and hold everything together with electrical tape, I had the expected meltdown, ate some chocolate and found an HP on clearance at our local Wal-Mart.  Balance was [...]
