This is our first year in “school” (preschool to be exact) and as it turns out, the rumours are true – school time means sick children. Already Princess First Time at School has come home with the sniffles. It’s not like I should be surprised, but I guess I didn’t expect it to happen so quickly. I’ve just had a scratchy throat which didn’t develop into anything too serious (which is great considering I’m trying to stay off medication at all costs while being pregnant). Let’s hope it stops at the sniffles and sneezes – but I think that’s wishful thinking on my part.
What’s the best way to keep those pesky germ buggers away? Hand washing, and lots of it. Thanks to Lysol, we have the No Touch soap dispensers and it gets used A Lot. Princess Hand Washer has to wash her hands plenty of times in a day just so the automatic soap dispenser squirts out some soap – but this mom isn’t complaining. I just usually tell her 3 or 4 squirts is enough, no need to count to 10 (although she has been learning to count in French….and anything that helps is a bonus).
I’m sure your kids touch everything too, I can get some serious dry heaves when I think of some of the places Princess Germy has placed her little fingers (not to mention her mouth licking the bottom of her flip flop). For those kind of kids, Lysol has a $10,000 giveaway for you called “Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap “Is Your Kid a Kid Who Touches Everything?” It’s a photo contest where the winner will win $10,000 cash and $10,000 to donate to a school.
Have you got a photo that shows how “your kid touches everything?” That’s exactly what Lysol is looking for. Submit your photo through Facebook – Good Luck!
I also have a giveaway for you too.
