After a fun summer of sleeping in and being lazy, it’s almost time to get back to school. Back to getting up super early. Back to fighting with my five year old to get dressed and out the door on time.
The changes in routine can be drastic for the kids – as well as the moms. I am not a morning person, and it can be hard to change from sleeping until 8am to my alarm clock blaring at 6:30am. My sleep schedule has to shift in order for this to work.
No longer can I stay up until midnight watching Netflix. The first week or so is difficult, adjusting myself so I can get enough sleep and still get my kiddo to school on time. Not every morning is peachy keen once back to school arrives. I usually deal with a headache or two when getting used to the earlier awakenings.
Thinking about this – and trying to plan ahead, I decided to hit up Target to make a DIY Back to School Kit for myself and Sawyer. Something that would hold all the little necessities in case either of us are having a bad morning.
I headed straight to the pain relief aisle. Probably the most important item in my kit would be pain relievers for headaches and other discomforts! I picked up MOTRIN® IB, which works fast to stop pain where it starts.
I also grabbed a bottle of Extra Strength TYLENOL®, the #1 doctor recommended brand of pain reliever. Since it works on a whole list of things like backache, menstrual cramps, fever, and muscle aches, I knew I wanted to have it on hand.
Get positively prepared with the right pain relief for you and your family at Target!
Since the two pain relievers for me are only for ages 12 and up, I added Children’s MOTRIN® to the back to school kit. This was located on the same aisle, right across from the adult pain relievers.
Help your kids bounce back by relieving their pain or fever with Children’s MOTRIN®. For high fever, nothing works faster or lasts longer.+ Among OTC brands. Lasts up to 8 hours. Plus, I love that it’s available in 3 yummy flavors – bubble gum, grape, or berry!
Also while out shopping, I picked up a few other essentials for our DIY back to school kit. Hard candy and gum for that morning breath, tissues, chapstick, and hand sanitizer all made the cut. You never know what you may be facing as you head to school each morning!
The One Spot of Target happen to have these cute bags as well, which I felt were perfect for our back to school kit.
It’s small enough to fit in my purse and the bright color reminds me to grab it each time I get out of the car…since it gets too hot out there to store the medication in the car at all times.
Once I got home, I put all of the back to school essentials into my cute bag. I popped the kit into my purse and that was it! Now, Sawyer and I are both positively prepared for whatever ordeal back to school mornings throw at us!
What would you include in your back to school kit?
