Someone needs to invent clear toothpaste.  You’d think that the blue-gel version would be “clear” enough to help my boys get their teeth brushed without much mess, but that is just not the case.  Every day as we walk into school I notice the white smudges all over the front of their tshirts and just cringe.  Teachers-I promise we wash our clothes every single time they are worn!  But somewhere between the sink, the car, and the school, the white mess of toothpaste appears and plagues their outfits without fail.

So, clear toothpaste–that’s the answer.  Toothpaste the color of spit would definitely solve this problem.  Perhaps I should start the researching and marketing now because surely I’m not the only mom out there with the toothpaste-on-the-collar problem.  Surely.
