May The Fourth Be With You – Star Wars Toothbrushes From Firefly

Firefly Darth Vader Toothbrush

I normally don’t do reviews for small things like toothbrushes and personal care items but I am a HUGE Star Wars fan and I knew my 6 year old would get a kick out of them. What I didn’t expect was that my teenage son’s friend would BEG the six year old for one of the toothbrushes. In his defense they are pretty cool. Aiden chose the Darth Vader brush.

Older Kids, Laundry Piles and Being #FreeToBe


My children are 17, 12 and 6. I am the mean mom that makes the 12 and 17 year old’s do their own laundry! I had to take care of mine when I became a teenager.
