Hopes and Dreams Giveaway! - Aquafresh Advanced Blog Tour

One of the first things we did after having our kids and filling out all the paper work that goes along with having kids, is fill out more paperwork.  This second round of paper work was not for birth registrations, or Social Insurance Numbers, this paper work was to help save for their futures.  My husband and I both know first hand that the costs of post-secondary education is huge!  But without it, the outlook for the future is small.  We also know that with 3 kids it's quite possible that we could have all three attending at the same time.  That's a lot of money!  I think most parents want what is good for their kids.  They want to give them the best possible start for their future.  That's why we started putting money into RESP's for all 3 of them.  It's not a lot of money each month, but we figured if we didn't start now, the costs would hit us too much in the future.  Each of their certificates contains the same verse on it:  For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  -Jeremiah 29:11.  We believe that to be true and we want to give our kids the best possible shot at a good future. 
Because of that belief, I'm happy to partner up once again with Mom Central to tell you about an opportunity to win up to $10 000 towards an RESP for your child.  Wouldn't that be great?  Who wouldn't want free money towards their child's education?  To enter that contest, just visit Aquafresh Advanced Futures, it's that easy.  I did.

Well you know that we like to give away stuff ourselves at Clever Mamas, so in conjunction with  Aquafresh Advanced and Mom Central, we are giving away a Philips Sonicare for Kids Toothbrush valued at $70(MSRP) and a sample of Aquafresh Advanced toothpaste!  Here's how to enter:  in our comments section, just let us know one tip for getting your kids to brush their teeth (we have a "teeth time" song in out house).  Don't forget to leave your contact info too!  Contest closes November 22. 

Disclosure - I am participating in the Aquafresh Advanced Futures program by Mom Central on behalf of GSK. I received a sample of Aquafresh Advanced and gift card as a thank you for my participation. The opinions on this blog are my own.


  1. We let Lochlan brush his own teeth after we have given them a good (quick) scrub, we also sing the Raffi song and have made "show us your teeth" a game since he has had teeth.

    We have an RESP for him as well and have put one of our monthly government checks in it since he was born (so we never missed it). At the moment we have a family RRSP, which means anyone in our family could use it (even Andrew or I).

  2. Use a timer put a sticker on the Grin Guy calender!!

  3. My little one is only 16 months old, but brushing teeth is incredibly tough! The best way to get her to do it is to brush our teeth right along with her. She likes to "help" me brush my teeth, and then I let her "help" brush her own as well.

  4. I started my son at 5 months so he'll keep his mouth open for short times so I just have to be really fast and when I'm done I let him chew on the toothbrush.
