Back to School season is officially ON in our household! In fact, I already started with a few Not-so-Obvious Back to School Essentials last month during Amazon’s Prime Day sale. If you know me, you’d be well aware of how much I enjoy snagging deals and finding the best bargain through the online retail giant. If I forget anything, they have a two-day (or even same-day) delivery. Great for mama’s like me who somehow ends up missing an item (or two!) despite having a checklist.
Sounds like you too? Welcome to the club.
Are you done school shopping?
How confident are you that you didn’t miss anything?
More likely than not, your child’s school has sent over or even handed out a checklist that they will need for their class. Some of you are seasoned parents already that this task is like a walk in the park. But the majority of the parents that I know, are very much like me. Cramming and leans toward last-minute shopping. The basics will always be obvious –pencil, crayons, markers, folders, backpack, and the list keeps going. Yet, there are a few but absolutely ESSENTIAL that are not-so-obvious and need to be included!
You read that right, NEED … because it is not a luxury, but a NECESSITY. Wondering what could it be? Then read on ahead! I swear, it will surely help.
Keep them Clean and Healthy with Yipes! Face and Hand Wipes. After all, kids will be kids AND will always be messy. If your little one(s) are anything like my boys, they will be touching, poking, climbing, and if around rocks or dirt, 10 out of 10 they will be digging … so they get icky and yucky real quick. That’s where Yipes! face & hand wipes for kids comes in super handy for life’s unpredictable surprises and sticky situation. It is specifically designed to teach kids who are ready to “graduate” from their baby wipes to develop INDEPENDENT HEALTHY HABITS with a wipe that is designed just for them
What I love the most with Yipes Wipes is that it is Plant-Based, Vegan, Hypoallergenic, Dermatologist-Tested, Compostable, and Plastic-Free Wipes. To top it all, it is convenient for everything ON-THE-GO with every wet wipe individually wrapped that takes care of every messy, dirty, sticky situation. Even more, it is perfect for backpacks, lunchboxes, pockets, and more!
When you’re a toddler, every day is an adventure. A chance to explore and make more memories. Running around is mandatory, and jumping about is a requirement to become a full-pledged big kid. He enjoys picking out his clothes, matching (or mismatching at that), and choosing his footwear too! Josiah prefers lightweight shoes and as he puts it “light helps me go fast”, which is also why we love Stride Rite Made2Play Journey 2.0 Sneaker.
Top 3 reasons why Stride Rite M2P Journey 2.0 Sneaker is a household favorite …
* Adjustable closure for a comfortable and easy fit.
* Machine washable! The sneakers also have special treatment to help reduce odors.
* Footbed or the insoles is crafted with Ortholite® memory foam for enhanced, superior comfort.

For a kindergartner, many activities require hand strength. Improving his grip is crucial, so one of the activities that we incorporate into his daily routine is hand strengthening exercise through play! We’re all about making things FUN so the kids would be more engaged.

Above everything else, it is of absolute importance that we start the day right. To be frank, Josiah can sometimes be picky with his food. Especially when it comes to veggies. Fruits aren’t much of an issue. I honestly strive to give the boys a balanced healthy meal, but I am not about to make it a battlefield if they choose not to eat certain food. In order to make sure he stays healthy throughout the school year we give him Standard Process SP Children’s™ Immune, a chewable supplement for kids ages 4 and older. It delivers key nutrients for proper immune system functioning and development.
Since mama is also the one to keep up with the kids day in and day out, I personally take Immuplex® to support a healthy immune system.
Standard Process has been making whole food-based supplements for more than 90 years and wanted to make sure the whole family is taken care of by supporting the health of the entire household.
