My Sammy is now in 4th grade which seems insane. Didn't she just start Kindergarten last year? Time sure does fly quickly. Luckily time has been good to us and three weeks ago my baby girl, the last of my children, started the fourth grade. We spent the entire month before her start date getting ready for back-to-school. Being prepared for her heading back to class also means being prepared for all of the cold and illnesses that come with the season. 

How To Get Positively Ready for Back-to-School

1: Purchase pain relief otc medications before-hand so you can be ready to face illnesses or pain quickly and efficiently. 

I'm really big into prevention, but no matter how hard you fight to prevent germs coming into your home, they still manage to make it in. Then there's all the germs that are being passed around in class. Before you know it, and usually just in the first few weeks of school, Sammy will come home with a fever. 

Usually it'll be one of those quick fevers that hits them right after school that you can treat with Children’s TYLENOL®. Children’s TYLENOL® is the #1 Pediatrician Recommended Brand for Pain & Fever and Used by Moms for Over 60 years. Usually we can do a dose of Children’s TYLENOL® that evening with plenty of liquids and rest, and she can be back in class in the morning. 

The back-to-school season also brings with it all of the after school activities. We spend most evenings at the park watching the kids play, which means carrying Children’s TYLENOL®, along with other products that we will need.

2: Pick up medicine for the correct age group for the kids and don't forget to pick up some for yourself too. You must take care of yourself first before you can take care of anyone else. 

With everything that I have on my plate you can bet that there's usually one part of my body that is in pain. But when you're a mom AND grandmother there's no downtime. Life, and the kids aren't going to wait for the headache to go away or for the aches and pains to subside.  MOTRIN® PM works fast to stop pain where it starts and temporarily relieves minor aches and pains due to: the common cold, headache, backache, minor pain of arthritis, toothache, muscular aches, premenstrual and menstrual cramps. 

For the body soreness that accompanies everyday life: from the gym, sitting in a chair all day, lugging kids in and out of the car, I turn to Ultra Strength BENGAY® Cream. BENGAY® temporarily relieves the minor aches and pains of muscles and joints associated with: simple backache, arthritis, strains, bruises and sprains. There are days that I will sit on the grass to watch the kids and honestly my body feels like it's not going to want to get back up. But a little bit of Ultra Strength BENGAY®  massaged into my back at night definitely soothes the pain away. 

The back-to-school season is hectic, it's stressful and it's chaotic but it's also one of my favorite seasons. It means the kids are back in school so we can get more done in a day, while they learn. It means that fall is in the air and soon we shall be enjoying the fall events at school and right after that the holidays.

By stocking up at Target for everything we need for the season, we're positively ready to face whatever comes our way.  Get positively prepared with the right pain relief for you and your family at Target. Start the school year happy and healthy and with as little pain as possible!
