starting off the crazy back to school days the right way

This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.

I may still be in denial about the whole thing, but we are officially “back to school” and dealing with everything that comes with it. In our case that means Monday through Friday involves an intricate dance between routine and randomness for every single family member.

On Monday/Tuesday/Thursday/Friday, I’m up at 5:40am to workout. When I return home at 7:00am, the rest of the house is awake and moving.

Mr. M is getting ready for work, and Miss L sets her timer for 10 minutes to get ready and head downstairs dressed for school, and I run to take a shower.  

Breakfast for everyone is a bowl of cereal, either eaten in hurry if we’re late or with a book if we’ve got a spare minute to relax. Miss L, however, gets a bonus to her breakfast: Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Multivitamin GummiesOnce breakfast is done, it’s time to pack up lunch for the day and head out the door to school dropoff at 8am and we head off to work.

So why add Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Multivitamin Gummies to her morning routine? Well, Miss L stays at school until 2:30, then heads to her active afterschool program until 5:30pm. That means she’s got little time to relax and rest until we make it home. And on certain days, that might not be until after 8pm. On Tuesdays, I scoop her up, make a mad dash home to change and shove dinner in our mouths, then head back downtown for 2 hours of dance. She’s also got midweek tennis lessons at 6pm on other days. And… with the NBA season approaching, we’ll be out of the house for those games as well!

While her day may just be beginning, it’s about to be 1000x more active than either of her parents. And we’re happy to do anything that we can do to support her and keep her happy and healthy back at school.

They’re crazy convenient for us to pick up at our local Target store, and Miss L really enjoys the flavors. In fact, she’s the one that’s now reminding us to keep them stocked in the cabinet and to eat with breakfast!

If your schedule is as crazy as ours, I’d encourage you to pick up some Nature Made® KIDS FIRST® Multivitamin Gummies on your next visit to Target too and see how well they work for your family!
