Three mornings per week, our routine involves getting up, dressed, fed, ready and out the door to make it to our workout class by 10AM. Though I only have one child to get out the door, some days it feels merely impossible to be anywhere on time with everything we need for a few hours out of the house in tow. Most mornings, I can remember things like an extra bottle, pacifier, and enough diapers and wipes to handle a small emergency, but remembering personal items for myself has become a bit harder.
I never go anywhere without my diaper bag. It contains all of the essentials I will need for G, and has enough space for me to pack extra essentials for myself. The key is making sure to pack all of the essentials that I'll need in a crunch. Over the last nine months, I have had time and experience to learn what the absolute essentials are for this Mommy. The list contains a pair of sunglasses, a pair of gloves, a few protein packed snacks, my wallet, chapstick, tissues and a few feminine items, i.e. tampons and slim pads.
When it comes to tampons and pads, I want something that is slim, easy to hide, and doesn't have the typical 'feminine product' appearance. After all, I am usually pulling one of these items out at an inopportune time when I only have a minute or two to spare. When I saw the new U by Kotex line at Walmart this week, I was instantly drawn to their sleek designs and packaging. My local Walmart had the entire collection in stock, and their everyday low prices made it an easy decision to toss both the Sleek Tampons and Cleanwear Pads into my shopping cart.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that I received 3 bonus Goody hair elastics with my U by Kotex purchase. It is always a good idea to take an extra hair tie (or three) along with you, especially when you'll be burning calories and working up a sweat. And, while supplies last, you can take advantage of the same deal when you shop for these products at your local Walmart!
The workout class that I attend is one that involves lots of babies, and lots of strollers. In truth, I love being able to take Gavin with me to workout with other Mom's every week. It is a chance for us to get out of the house together, breathe some fresh air and socialize. This class has been a lifesaver for me over the last few months as I perfect my 'Mommy craft.'
I've gotten pretty good at packing our bag(s) in a hurry, and am proud to say that last week, I had every item we needed when I was working out each morning. I even had the emergency tampon that I couldn't have survived class without on Friday. Thank you, Kotex!
