It’s finally back-to-school time and the whole family is doing better. There is something about the beginning of summer that creates so much happiness and excitement yet by the time it is August, we all are craving schedules and routines.
We had a lazy, great summer. My friends are right though, my definition of lazy may differ a little from everyone else’s. My lazy means that we were home for a few hours a day instead of our normal gone-all-day schedule. It was nice to be able to eat a meal or two at home every day though and maybe even take a nap (I think I had about 3 naps total during the summer!) if time allowed.
Now that we’re back in school, our lives are incredibly busy again. I forgot why I don’t see my friends often enough during the school year and that’s because I’m always working or on the go.
Thinking back to last year at this time, the only thing I really remember is having the kids come home that first week of school with runny noses and coughs. Because I don’t sleep much and I share way too much food with them, I caught the back-to-school sickness and caught it a million times worse than the kids. We happened to have a vacation planned over Labor Day and had family come into town to stay at our house while we were gone so it was the worst weekend. I cleaned the house a lot to make sure no one else got sick and then we left on an adventure-packed weekend.
Well, that was not going to happen to us this year. I “stopped” by Target, and by “stopped,” I mean made my usual weekly shopping spree at Target, to pick up Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Multivitamin Gummies. We’ve made it a routine for my 4 and 6 year old every morning to create a healthy habit by taking one. My kids look forward to it each day because they know that we are doing our best to stay healthy and they enjoy the taste.
Lucky for us, this time around is going much better for us. Labor Day is coming up and we’re still feeling great. We have another adventure-packed weekend and are looking forward to bringing our Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Multivitamin Gummies with us as they are a part of our everyday life now.
As the school year continues, I am definitely looking forward to staying on a stricter schedule. It has been so nice to have the children learning at school and enjoying the social aspects as well.
Here’s a peak at our schedule (have I mentioned I love schedules?!):
5:45: I wake up to exercise
7:00: Wake up the children (and the husband)
7:30: Leave for elementary school
8:30: Leave for preschool
9:00: I get to work
11:30: Preschool is out
3:00: Elementary is out
This is just a rough schedule and it changes a little from day to day but it is so nice to know what to expect from each day and what we’ll be doing.
If you want to check out Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Multivitamin Gummies for yourself, find them at Target. I found them in the vitamin section of Target near the pharmacy, but every Target may be different.
