Before I moved to New Hampshire, I always told myself I would never be THAT mom. You know the one…the hardcore sports mom. I figured my kids would play sports at some point, but I never thought sports would end up dominating every aspect of my life for months on end.
I never dreamed I would eat, sleep and breathe sports.
Yet here I am. I’m now THAT mom. The sports mom. The mom who drives a minivan.
My van is now a portable locker room, filled with baseball, tae kwon do, volleyball, track and field and soccer bags all year long! Some of the bags don’t even belong to our kids and instead belong to their friends.
My van is also equipped with a “sports aid kit that includes first aid items, snacks, drinks, etc… because you never know when you’ll need one of those things!
If I’m being honest, even though I never thought I’d be that mom, I’m glad I am now. I would much rather our kids be busy than involved with negative influences.
In addition to being prepared when out and about, I also make sure I’m prepared at home with the things I need to keep their uniforms looking good.
When my kids step out on the field or into the dojang, I want them looking their best.
I want their whites as white as can be. And their colors bright and not faded.
I know when a child plays outdoor sports, their uniforms are more than likely going to get dirty during the game, but before that, I want their uniforms clean and fresh smelling. And I don’t want stains showing on anything they’re wearing! I take great pride in how their uniforms look.
I will admit, though, that whenever the kids get a stain on their uniforms, I undergo a moment of panic! That’s why I’ve had to brush up on my stain-removing talents. I’ve learned how to remove stains from grass, dirt, mud, ice cream, ketchup, blood, you name it.
I can trust that OxiClean™ HD™ Laundry Detergent will get the stains out, meaning I don’t have to buy new clothes because the others are destroyed!
Now that I am using OxiClean™ HD™ Laundry Detergent, I feel more confident than ever that our kids’ uniforms are going to look nice no matter what, and I don’t have to worry about what will happen if a stain doesn’t come out. Spending a little more saved me a little more.
Having kids has taught me a lot about saving money whenever possible, and I’m sure the knowledge within me will only grow as our kids continue to grow. And who knows, maybe one day our grandchildren will teach us something too.
To test out the effectiveness of it, I put some on my eight-year- old’s grass-stained gray baseball pants the other day. I followed the directions and pretreated the stains before washing the pants. About 30 minutes later I pulled the pants out of the wash and took a look at the knees and there was no sign of the grass stains that were present before I washed them. I was one ecstatic mom.
Now when my children step out onto the field, onto the court or into the dojang, I can stand back and watch with pride knowing they look their best. Thanks OxiClean™ HD™ Laundry Detergent for the sense of accomplishment I now feel. I’m winning at this sports mom thing!
