Back to school is coming. Like an unspoken holiday to some of us. It doesn't mean we love our kids any less but let's face it, for the most part we all thrive on routine. Lazy summer days are great and all but the time comes when we all need to get our acts together and head into the Fall. Full of routine and expected schedules. Thankfully back to school always seems to come at the perfect time...somewhere in between my kids making me crazy and being ready for a crisp Fall day.
One of my favorite parts of back to school? Supply shopping. Fresh pencils and clean notebooks. New crayons and supplies of all sorts just add so much excitement and hope for the year ahead. I adore shopping for back to school supplies. I love heading into the aisles with a list and checking each item off. The boys even love it.
And just as important as crayons and pencils, as markers and rulers, binders and folders are the Clorox wipes. The teachers request them every year and throughout the year. And I always buy extra for home use as well. Part of our transition from Summer lazy to Fall routine is dealing with the fresh influx of germs that comes with getting all those kids together in the same room again.
I know that at school desks and doorknobs get a regular wipe down with Clorox wipes. The same at home. Knobs and counters, sinks and toilets are regular subject of cleaning. And not just cleaning, disinfecting. If you hope to stay ahead of the germs at all, it just has to be done. And my personal philosophy? If a toilet isn't cleaned with Clorox, is just isn't clean at all.
Teachers and parents not only work on keeping minds sharp and learning but also keeping kids healthy and in the classroom...not the doctors office. It's an important part of what makes kids successful during the year.
And a little props to Clorox...
