#FreeToBe messy

by - Sunday, June 07, 2015

I'm a homeschooling mama and we're through our kindergarten curriculum for the year. Onto first grade in a few months! Whoa, so that means that I'm becoming an entertainer to a 6 year old for the next few months. I don't have lesson plans or worksheets lined up for him but that's exactly what we need. We are #FreeToBe whatever it is we want to be. Lately, our life has been "messy." It could be summed up as chaotic, but I think it's more of my boy being a messaholic. He dabbles in one thing, then when he finishes that he's onto the next thing. He's still learning the clean up part!

When we're not at home, we're out getting "messy" other places. We venture to the farmer's market and he finds the good stuff! Good stuff = sticky donuts, water fountains and friendly animals! =) So you can probably guess the first thing that happens when we arrive back home. Yeah, we throw his clothing in the wash machine for an easy cleanup. That's part of my job. He makes the messes, we I clean them up!

A few days a week, the boy gets to practice his swim skills at a local pool. Thankfully we found a great saltwater pool so when he's done with his class he smells like the beach and not chemicals. That is important to me because his skin is more sensitive than most. When we get home his towel and swimming gear goes straight into the wash machine.

I've been lucky to have found out about and to have partnered with all free clear, the #1 recommended detergent brand by Dermatologists, Allergists, and Pediatricians for sensitive skin. It's tough on stains yet gentle enough for the whole family. I love that it's 100% free of dyes and perfumes and is so gentle on our skin. Safe for all washing machines. I just tried their NEW OXI mighty pacs! Each little mighty pac is full of the concentrated cleaning power of OXI with the gentleness of free clear, providing a powerful clean that’s safe for the whole family. If you buy it in liquid form instead of the pacs, you can use it to remove stains around the house (it can be used on carpet, upholstery and patio furniture, just to name a few! all free clear has only 9 ingredients, that’s less than half the ingredients of Tide Free & Gentle! Another reason I have a smile on my face!

When we're not making messes at our normal hangouts, we're chasing down fun things to do. One experience was hearing about this food truck race that came through our town. We had to hunt down the Waffle Truck. It was so delicious! How do you think that ended? It was a mess but we enjoyed it! I'm so thankful to have a wash machine!

  1. I've never heard of a salt water swimming pool before. My son and I are both sensitive to chlorine, so it sounds awesome.
