Do you have big hopes and dreams for your kids' futures? I'm sure you do. We all have them. Some of these wishes that we wish on the evening star, or dreams we dream as we drift off at night, some of them are big and broad and general, simply wishing for health and happiness and long life for our children. Some of those wishes and dreams are more specific - entering the family business, becoming a doctor, attending a certain university, and so on.
Some of them can get kinda expensive. Which is why so many of us parents have started contributing to an RESP for our kids, to help them on their way. And which is why Aquafresh has announced their Aquafresh Advanced Futures contest, The grand prize is a $10,000 RESP! To enter, just visit www.aquafresh.ca/contest, register your contact information (takes like 30 seconds) and then share your wish for your child. The contest closes on Nov. 30, so go now! (Winner will be chosen by a random draw from among all entries.) You can also read through other parents' wishes in the Wish Gallery.
I have entered the contest, and have my fingers crossed! My dreams for Little Boo and The Teenager are pretty general. Basically I want them to be happy in whatever they do, to be financially secure (sure, rich would rock, but secure is what they need), and to find love. I also wish that they both find partners that I like, and that they provide lots of grandkids. But that wish is really more about me than it is them :-) I don't care what they do for a living, so long as it is legal, fulfills them, and keeps them comfortable.
This contest from Aquafresh is pretty super, but of course their main business is healthy teeth and gums. They have recently launched a new product, Aquafresh Advanced toothpaste, an enamel-strengthening formula that contains active fluoride to penetrate deep into tooth enamel and strengthen teeth from the inside out. Tooth brushing is an important part of our daily hygiene and sometimes a difficult skill to teach our small children to do well. Up until they are about 6 years old children need parental supervision and some assistance to make sure the job is getting done right. I like to let Little Boo have the first turn, and then I go in to try to hit the spots he may have missed.
Now for some more fun … One lucky reader of this blog will receive a Philips Sonicare for Kids Toothbrush, valued at $70 (MSRP) plus a sample of Aquafresh Advanced Toothpaste! Sound good?
