This past week we have had some amazing weather here in Maryland! I'm so excited we're finally able to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and heat! In a house with kids, that means getting dirty. To me, that's what being a kid is all about. Getting messy means you're having fun!
Our boys are messy! No doubt about that. That's fine by me though, especially when it comes to playing outside!
It hit 80º this week and we finally made it out back to play with all our outside toys! We made it to the store to get play sand to fill up their sandbox with clean sand for the year, but that's about as far as the prepping has gotten. The lawnmower hasn't wanted to start this year, so it's kind of a weedy jungle out there and the swingset hasn't been cleaned yet. Don't worry though, that won't stop these boys from playing!
The back of this car was absolutely disgusting. And of course, Owen had to play in it and then rub it all over himself. That's what boys (or any kid really) are going to do. I'm not going to stop him from having fun and exploring just because I don't want him to get dirty.
I have all free clear to help me take care of those dirty clothes when they're done playing. We actually use all free clear with OXI because we need all the cleaning power we can get. What I really love is that I get all the gentleness of all free clear, but all the stain-fighting power! all free clear is the #1 recommended detergent brand by Dermatologists, Allergists, and Pediatricians for sensitive skin. It rinses clean and has a gentle, hypoallergenic formula.
Both boys have sensitive skin like Daddy, so we try to be careful what we use on them directly and what we use to wash those messy clothes. all free clear has received the National Eczema Associate (NEA) Seal of Acceptance™, which means that they avoid certain chemicals, dyes, perfumes and residues that are known to be unsuitable for use by persons with eczema or a sensitive skin condition.
At the end of the day, the boys are messy, but they've had fun! That generally means they'll sleep better, too! If only we could get Charlie to sleep in his own bed all night, but that's another issue. Those dirty clothes I can tackle! Notice that is a LEGO shirt Charlie's wearing? If one of his favorite shirts get messy, there are sometimes tears. He knows Mommy clean them up though. No one said drama is reserved for little girls.
Did you know you can also get all free clear fabric softener and dryer sheets? Again, they received the NEA Seal of Acceptance™. You can find them right in the fabric conditioner aisle of your local store!
Summer means playing outdoors and getting messy! Sure, you can have certain clothes that are “play clothes”, but when you come across an opportunity to play, I'm not going to pass it by because they might get their clothes dirty. Let Kids Be Kids!
Lucky for you, I'm giving away $15 in Paypal Cash to one reader so they can pick up some all free clear products to try, courtesy of Mom's Messy Miracles!
There will be sweepstakes kicking off in mid-May called #withmyblanket. Keep an eye on the all free clear Facebook page for more information.
What are some of your little one's favorite ways to get messy?
