Spring & Summer Time Travels with the Kids

March is when it all starts in my family.  The travels of back and forth from the beach to home plus 2 wild boys and new to the family, our sweet pup Hank.  With all the travels, me as a mom, I have to stay somewhat organized being I am the only female in the house (men aren’t the most organized, right ladies!? 😉 ).

Here are some simple tips for the moms to keep the family organized during the spring and summer months.

Boat Beach

Give a task to someone else

Us as moms feel like we should take it all on, but I have learned that only stresses me out so I have HAD to push myself to delegate.  Now that the boys are getting older they can take on more responsibility.  So, when its time to pack up for our weekends at the beach I have made it their responsibility to pack their clothes; I of course go behind them to make sure all the essentials are packed of course 😉  This has been a HUGE help (more mentally than physically).

  • Our Canvas Duffles are perfect for the boys… with their names monogrammed of course.

Pre-Pack and Don’t Un-Pack

 

I have actually done this since Mason (my oldest who is now 7) was a baby.  I am one of those moms who had my boys on a boat, near the water since they were infants so of course with any new baby and toddler there comes a ton of little stuff you can’t forget especially when you’re out on a boat.  We call it our Boat Bag in my house… it’s a bag that I have which I NEVER unpack (except if there is food, of course).  This has taken a lot of the thinking out of packing, which to me is the most exhausting part of traveling, am I right?  All I have to do is grab it and go and add in the boat snacks once we get down to the beach.

  • Some essential items that I always keep in our Boat Bag: our Stripe Beach Pouch is the perfect option
  1. Burt’s Bees All-Weather Moisturizing Lip Balm SPF 15
  2. Alba Botanica Kids Spray SPF 50
  3. The Honest Company Sunscreen Stick SPF 30
  4. A change of clothes (so they have something dry to put on for the boat ride in)
  5. Beach Towels (our lightweight towels are a staple for any summer trip)
  6. The boys sunglasses (a cheap pair so I don’t have to keep up with them and I know I’ve got them if the boys need them)
  7. 2 baseball hats
  8. Baby powder for the bums or sandy feet

*I use my Think Dirty app to find the cleanest products for your kiddos

Momsplaining … MSC Style!

We’ve all heard the term “momsplaining” or have seen the hashtag on social media. Some (myself included) follow actress Kristen Bell as she tackles life through her internet series of the same name. So, as a mom of three-year-old and 18-month-old girls, I am here to momsplain some MSC items for you. Whether you are a mom, grandma, wife, sister…all these tips can help you think outside of the box for the many ways you can utilize our products!

Our Canvas Line is THE BEST for kid’s stuff. The quality has been kid tested (at least in my house)! It’s sturdy and when it gets dirty-flip it inside out and toss it in the washer-which is so convenient. The laptop case is the perfect size for coloring/reading books and (every mom’s favorite) construction paper. It can also slide in the pocket behind your seat in the car to keep kids of all ages occupied in the backseat. Use the cosmetic bag to hold all those art supplies-crayons, markers, colored pencils, glue sticks, stencils. Such a great way to keep it all in one place for the little ones to exercise their creativity!

Diaper bags are no longer for just diapers and bottles. Use our ric rac diaper bags for the PERFECT tween overnight bag. So spacious inside for all the clothes and shoes their hearts desire! The side pockets are great for cell phones and tablets for quick access to snap pics to capture all the memories of being a teenager. Toss in one of our jewelry cubes or cases to help organize all the charging cords and ear buds!

Hooded towels are hooded towels. There’s no magic momsplaning on this one 😊 My daughters LOVE them! They are soft and can grow with the child. Not to mention-so many adorable options! My daughters still use the ones we’ve had since the oldest was a baby. They’re a staple bath item in our household.

Sometimes it’s hard to keep everything organized. Okay, ALL the time it’s hard to keep things organized! Let our Southern Home crunch bins help you with that! They are great for a toy bin in the living room (with the stylish patterns they come in-who will notice there are toys in there?!). Also, they are perfect to store all the essentials you might need for an overnight trip. I have used them to carry diapers, wipes, night lights, blankets, bedtime books, lovies and toys when you are home away from home. It holds it all! Just pack it and toss it in the car.

Not just as a mom, but as a parent, we’re always looking for extra tips and tricks of the trade, so I hope this helps you get creative with the uses for some of our items. Let us see how YOU momsplain some other MSC products! Make sure to tag us on Social media so we can share!
