February is National Children’s Dental Health Month!

We took them to a pediatric dentist in Colorado Springs, and I remember being surprised and excited by how different the experience was from when I was growing up. I went to the same dentist my parents did, and I remember being in a sterile-looking room with scary tools and gross-tasting tooth products. Like most pediatric dental practices, our kids’ dental office here in Northern Virginia has a waiting room full of toys and books, toothpastes and fluoride treatments in a wide range of yummy flavors (think watermelon, chocolate, and grape), fun sunglasses for kids to wear during treatments, and a treasure chest of goodies they can choose from at the end of their appointments. To help aspiring dentists/dental hygienists and those who wish to work in academia afford a college education, Oklahoma dentist Karl Jobst, D. D.S. is offering a $1,000 scholarship to high school seniors who have been accepted into a U.S. college or university.

Creating Good Financial Habits — and Passing Them On to Our Kids!

When they first got married and needed a dining room set, they waited until they saved enough cash to buy it outright rather than charge it to a credit card—and they cherished it all the more because of that. When I graduated from college, I remembered the good financial habits my parents taught me. And we’re committed to teaching our kids the same good financial habits that our parents taught us. One of them is a debt reduction service, like Nationwide Debt Reduction Services.

New Year, New Opportunities

Everyone—myself included—is always so quick to write a one-star Yelp review when the food or service is bad at a restaurant, or to ask to speak to a manager when we receive poor customer service from an employee. I’m going to send an email to Madewell and Amazon to let them know about the outstanding customer service I received from two employees during the holidays. So if you’re in the process of making new year’s resolutions—or simply thinking about some changes you’d like to make in 2018—consider taking the time to leave feedback for great customer service, not just bad customer service. Here’s to positive changes and great customer service in 2018!

Back to School, Plus a Chance to Win a $1,000 College Scholarship from Groza Learning Center!

Our district shifted the school calendar so that school will end a week a week earlier in June and start a week earlier (the week before Labor Day). Lily will start preschool a week after the boys go back and will only go to school 12 hours a week, so I know she’ll be asking for her brothers at first. But as big of an adjustment as I and all of my fellow parents will have once school starts, it can’t compare to the big changes parents with kids heading off to college will go through! So, the center wants to help students reach their goal of attending college or university by offering a $1,000 scholarship to 2017 high school graduates or currently enrolled college or university students.
