No one tells you when you have as many kids as we do the amount of laundry you will be up against. Just think, there are 6 people in our household. If everyone wears socks on 1 day, that is at least 12 dirty socks…FOR ONE DAY! And we are potty training our youngest so I am knee-deep in his clothes.
Thanks to all® free clear detergent, that we have been using for years, to help make our laundry experience stress-free. My 2nd to oldest son suffers from allergies so I have to use detergent that is sweet to his skin. And all® free clear detergent is always reasonably priced so it doesn’t break the bank to buy it.
Plus all® free clear detergent is the #1 Recommended brand by Dermatologists, Allergists, and Pediatricians. In fact when I go to my allergy doctor with my son, they always recommend we use this detergent. It is 100% free of dyes and perfume and removes 99% of top everyday and seasonal allergens. That is huge in our household!
This week I headed over to Sam’s club to stock up on some all® free clear detergent. It was easy to find and you can choose from the all® free clear detergent or the all® free clear Mighty Pacs®. We chose the all® free clear detergent just because that is what we normally use. It was easy to find in the detergent aisle. Plus it comes in a large size so I won’t have to run to the store anytime soon.
But to be honest, lots of laundry doesn’t even faze me anymore. Dirty clothes mean we have been having a good time. So bring them on! We live in Colorado and we love to spend time outdoors. We found an amazing hike 10 minutes from our house that ends in a waterfall. And it’s an easy enough hike where we can take all the kids.
When we get to go hiking, there are no rules but to be safe. I want my kids to play in the dirt, run through the waterfalls and just soak up nature. The last thing on my mind is how dirty their clothes are getting. Or how sweaty my husband is as he pushes 2 kids in a stroller and one on his back on our way back to the car.
My kids won’t remember the day they got to watch tv all day or the level they beat on their newest game…they will remember the walks with their dad along the creek, the waterfall we got to see and the mountain they got to climb. So no matter how dirty they get, I know it’s the last thing I have to worry about with all® free clear detergent.

I was sent free samples of Honest drinks but all opinions are my own.
I love living in Colorado because even though we go to public school, my kids’ teachers make an effort to have healthy snacks at the kids’ parties. I can tell you both parties we have had this year that I have signed to bring snacks, the teacher requested we bring Honest Kids drink pouches!
You know the kids can get sugar overload at parties. I am so happy we go to a school where the teacher looks out for the kids.
So my kids couldn’t wait to try out the new Honest Kids drink flavors in Cherry Go Round and Twisted Tropical Tango!
As soon as they saw this box on our doorstep they couldn’t wait to rip it open.
I was happy to find out my kids loved both flavors! Sometimes it’s hard to find things all my kids like. They are always a fan of the Honest drinks. And get this, they removed cane sugar from all their drinks and only sweeten their drinks with fruit juice! That is a win for me and my kids for sure!

*I was provided free swim lessons in order to provide me honest review.
I cannot believe 3 of my kids are old enough to take swimming lessons! Just last year my oldest son was the only one even close to swimming. Since most of them were still swimming with floaties, I would get nervous if I had to take all 4 kids to the beach since only my oldest could swim, I had to have my eyes in 3 places at once.
Well things have changed thanks to SafeSplash swim school! My parents have a pond at their house and my kids go there a lot so I have been really wanted to get my kids not only comfortable in the water but safe around it as well.
We registered for a swim location in Littleton, CO at a fitness gym so it was convenient for an after school activity. They put the kids in classes according to their swim level. My oldest was in a private lesson with one sweet teacher and my 2 younger were together. They accommodated me with doing their swim lessons at the same time so I only had to sit through one lesson. With a wild 2 year old, that was very nice!
I loved how private the lesson was because we have done rec center lessons and while they were fun, I didn’t feel like they actually learned to swim.
We signed up for a 4 week swim lesson course for all 3 of my kids. During the first lesson my oldest started crying. I had forgotten he had a bad experience with a swim teacher in the past so he wasn’t afraid of swimming but of having a teacher. My husband and I decided it would be best for him to overcome this fear since we didn’t want him to have ANY fears when it came to the water. The second lesson he didn’t want to go and cried again but he finished the lesson thanks to the amazing teacher!
She was the patient with him and talked him through his fears. As a mom I wanted to rescue him but I knew it would only benefit him if he could overcome this with his teacher. By the 4th lesson he was jumping in the water ready for swim lessons. I cannot thank the SafeSplash swim teachers and staff enough for baring with us through this and patiently teaching my kids.
So not only did my oldest make a breakthrough my little girl came into swimming lessons not being able to swim. She was comfortable in the water but would sink like a brink. A week after the swim lessons were over we went to the local pool and I brought her floaties. She insisted I watch her swim to show me she didn’t need them.
I knew she could only swim a small amount at a time so I didn’t believe she could do it. After swimming half the length of the pool to me without assistance, my mouth was on the ground! My little 5 year old was not only swimming but swimming well!
She swam off with her friends without me or floaties. I didn’t know how to accept my 3 kids could swim on their own without me! I was beyond excited. Safesplash helped my family reach so many milestones in swimming in such a short amount of time.
They have swim schools all over the country to check out Safesplash.com to find one near you!
