I Can’t Believe My Kid Said This…


I will get to that thing my kid said, but first I have to set it up.

Remember when I had The Ugly Contest? No? You really should come around more often.

Well, anyway, that hilarious, hilarious contest was sponsored by Smile Brilliant. (You MUST go look at those pictures. You just MUST.) They sent me a teeth whitening system that I used and loved. Instead of updating that post, I thought I would just show you the “before” and “after” photos here.
(You can read that post and find out more about the products and how it all works HERE.)

Can you believe that that teeth whitening product made me look like this? I was pretty shocked, too, but I guess it’s okay since it is almost Halloween anyway. It happened all of a sudden during my last night of using the product. If you want to see a picture of me just before that all happened, look at this one:

I really do like the products. I think they are easy to use and of a professional grade quality. My mother-in-law even said so. She’s a dental hygienist. When I got the products in the mail, she looked a little bit annoyed. She said that companies like Smile Brilliant were going to put dentist offices out of business because people could just whiten their teeth at home. What makes this company different than many is that you actually make impressions of your teeth, send it in and wait for them to send you back a tray that matches your teeth perfectly.

But, if I’m being honest, the main reason I used this teeth whitening system is so I can possibly avoid the embarrassment caused to me by my older son when he was a little guy.

We went to visit family one afternoon. Kids are pretty bad about personal space. He was all up in it with my relative. He leaned into her after staring at her teeth for a long, awkward moment and asked as innocently as he possibly could, “WHY YOU JUST EAT BUTTER?”


He said she just ate BUTTER.

Like, a stick of butter.

Lawduhmercy, where’s a big hole to jump into when you need it?

The kid was telling the truth, though. Her teeth weren’t white or anywhere near it, really. They were a nice shade of YELLA and there’s no way around it. So yellow, in fact, that a little boy thought she had smeared butter over her teeth.

That’s bad. That’s real bad.

Thankfully, she didn’t catch on, or at least I don’t think so. I think she said something to the effect of, “Well, honey, I didn’t just eat butter. Hahaha!”


As you might imagine, especially if you are a parent yourself, that wasn’t the first of embarrassing things my kids have said. In fact, I made a list of the top 9 ones for NickMom once called “The Top 9 Most Embarrassing Things My Kids Have Said While The Person Was Standing RIGHT THERE”. Maybe you can relate?

If you’d like to get your hands on Smile Brilliant’s products, which are, seriously, like being at a dentist and getting your teeth whitened, except without all the drool, then check their website and check them out on Facebook. You will not be disappointed!
