Our friend Miley Cyrus has a new song "we can't stop." I'm feeling the song. The video...

Today Alexander had his first trip to the dentist. It was a smashing success! We took him to Kids Dental Care in Windsor. He's 2 1/2 years old and we knew that they had lots of child friendly activities, but we didn't know how he'd handle everything. The staff was so fun, friendly, and warm. They made him comfortable immediately and he had a great time! Here's what went down.
We arrived at the office. It was real easy to find. I91 to exit 38. Just off the exit between Price Chopper and Buffalo Wild Wings. The first thing that caught Alexander's attention was the aquarium and all the fishees.
Then he saw the slide and wanted to go down....over and over and over. See the smile on his face in this video!
Then we went upstairs and he got to brush Norman's teeth. He learned about how important brushing is and to make sure he gets all the teeth good.
Then Alexander practiced opening his mouth like a lion.
Then the dentist counted his teeth, brushed his teeth, and gave him some "vitamins" for his teeth. He loved it. He even got to go home with a new toothbrush, toothpaste, and some floss!
Afterwards, Alexander went down on the 2 story slide another 5 times. We'll be back, soon!
I'd definitely recommend Kids Dental in Windsor or Bristol. Check out their site here -> KIDS DENTAL <-. Your kid will love it and so will you!

Here are some general tips that help
with some savings basics.
Saving $ is making $. A great way to
save serious $ is at the grocery store. I figure if I can
save $200 a month, I can invest that money in a college fund for
Alex. Cautiously, over 15 years that $200 a month will be
worth $75,000. That should cover half his college. Hopefully
he'll be smart, or a star athlete, or go to a state school to maybe
even make that money last all 4 years :-)
Here are some keys to saving the most $ with
the least effort:
*** If you have the time, clipping coupons is
a great way to accelerate your savings. I'd recommend getting
a few coupon inserts per week. Also, Coupon Mom is
a great site that will do the leg work for you. They'll tell
you which items you can save BIG MONEY on, in some cases 100% off),
when you combine the weekly sale with a coupon from a recent
insert. They also have coupons you can print on your own
printer. CHeck out their site here. ***
