We are counting down the days until school starts here. Literally. We even have the countdown-to-kindergarten chain hanging from this lady to prove it.
I don’t know about you, but back-to-school time always feels like new year’s to me. I make way more resolutions in August than I do in January. (Get up earlier, wake kids up earlier, make healthier breakfasts, always pack lunches the night before, look at homework folders before headed out the door at 7:35am, never scream for people to GET. IN. THE. VAN!, put on real clothes—including a bra—in the morning in case I have a wreck on the way to school. . . You know, just to name a few.) Along with my “resolutions” also comes a few organizing projects around the house:
If there’s one thing that can make a perfectly good morning go awry, it usually goes down in the girls’ bathroom and nine times out of ten involves hair. So, this year, I’m getting a jump on the situation by stocking up on plenty of hair accessories and products that will make our mornings happy happy happy!! (A momma can dream. . . )
I’ve been using these JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® products on the two older girls who have more hair than most shampoo commercial models. They’ve outgrown the baby shampoo I still use on the twins, and these are a great next (gentle) step.
1. A 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner that smells so good without any worries if some suds get in their eyes.
2. A leave in conditioner makes after-bath combing a happier experience for both of us.
3. This detangler is my favorite morning styling product. It makes shiny, clean hair still possible even when someone accidentally sleeps in her ponytail the night before. . .
Ready to tackle the day!
(Or, at least kindergarten. . .)
