What does your day consist of? Austin and Addie keep me on my toes 24 hours a day. Okay so they are not up 24 hours a day, some days it feels more like 25 but every moment that they are awake they keep me on my toes. I love that they are so active and close. Although we have days when sharing is a challenge, they don’t enjoy being separated. Period. They don’t enjoy watching the other get disciplined and usually take up for each other even if they were the one that tattled.
Our days are full of laughter and giggles, smiles and frowns, occasionally tears and lots and lots of joy. I wouldn’t trade my time with my children for anything in the world!
Having two toddlers that are always on the go, we deal with our fair share of bumps and bruises, scrapes and even a broken bone (already, and here is the proof!) And yes, we go through our fair share of band aids in our home!
Recently when we had a collision with the concrete while we were out and about and realized that we were running low on BAND-AID® bandages. Although we have been using Bandaid brand since the children were born, I was recently introduced to BAND-AID® with Quiltvent Technology. It has been proved that a covered wound heals faster than one constantly exposed to germs.
What is different about the QUILTVENT® Technology in BAND-AID® Brand bandages? They create air channels using a Microvent technology for superior breathability and wick away blood to keep wound clean. Both are important to help aid the healing process.
While at Sam’s Club we decided we would pick up a few items to refresh our first aid kits we store in our cars to help with proper wound care while away from home. They have a great selection of first aid products at an excellent value so I picked up a box of BAND-AID® bandages with 160 count for under $10 (which saves me $2 over purchasing them at Walmart).
I also purchased a two-pack of children’s Motrin, alcohol pads, a 3-pack of neosporin and Clif Crunch Bars. You can see my full Sam’s Club shopping trip in my #HealthyValue Google+ album.
I gathered together a few other items we usually keep in our kits from my stash at home and also added ibuprofen, hand sanitizer, wipes, and water bottles. There are a few more items on my list that I would like to add: children’s Benadryl (mine are expired), nuts, flashlights, plastic bags and matches.
What does your family keep on hand for emergency purposes? Are your children like mine where a BAND-AID® and kisses from Mama makes your little ones feel better?
