When I think back to school I think schedules and routines. During the summer everyone kind of does their own thing. The kids get up when they want, eat when they want, and go to bed when they want. While my husband and I are still somewhat on a schedule since we don’t get the summer off things still kick into high gear when the kids get back to school.
This year both my boys are in high school. This means when I drop them off my daughter has to be up and dressed to go with us. Last year she was able to sleep in because her brother was home with her. We are on a tight schedule leaving the house between 6:45-6:50 to beat the school traffic. Then we go back home so my daughter can eat and get ready and we can be out the door again by 7:30. If we stay within these time frames everything goes smoothly. If we are late things start to fall apart.
As a mother I have to keep the kids on their schedules and get them into a routine. My oldest son is 17 and must wash his face each morning and night to help get rid of his acne. He is currently using a medicated program but my youngest son is just getting to the age where acne is waiting to rear its ugly head. For this reason I’ve put him on a routine of washing his face when he showers with an over the counter acne wash like the Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruite from Neutrogena.
Once the kids are on their schedules showers, teeth brushing, and bed mom has to make sure she keeps to her own schedule. I try to make sure that at least once a day when I brush my teeth I floss and use a good mouth wash. I am a believer in Listerine and use both their toothpaste and their LISTERINE® HEALTHY WHITET GENTLE Rinse. Since I have been using both my dentist has said that my teeth are looking great!

As I age I have learned how important it is to take care of your skin. I have been trying a lot of different products and can’t wait to try the Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub. I have been trying to teach my daughter at a young age how important it is so she will grow up with much nicer skin.
