Does it feel like summer just started, yet some kids have already gone back to school, with everyone else following closely behind. I keep saying “next month things will slow down” but it’s been about a decade now and that month hasn’t come yet. Good thing I wasn’t holding my breath!
Back to School means no more time for laziness and and to be honest, I’m not entirely sure who this annual transition is harder for: the kids, parents or teachers. (Shout out to teachers!! You are amazing and I could never do what you do!) If you parents out there are anything like me, you need some help too…help with schedules, meal planning, packing lunches, appointments, basically feeling like you’re living out of your care…you know, the glamorous side of having busy kids!
Those two kiddos man, they keep me on my toes. Especially the little fast one…she’s exhausting. I love her so much, but keeping up with both of them, while keeping them up as well, it’s a juggling act that’s for sure. The fact that they are both on competitive traveling teams just intensifies the stress from trying to make everyone’s schedules coordinate.
That’s why my whole family and I travel with our favorite backpack, and lots of colorful and fun pens by Pilot Pen at Target. Target takes care of everyone so it’s a one stop shop and that’s how I like it. These pens and highlighters basically ensure that everyone in homes’s life runs as smoothly as possible. This girl loves these fancy new Pilot Pen products because I’ve just always love fun bright colors and they write beautifully.
The G2 is kind of my. It’s totally the ultimate pen for the everyday overachiever. G2 pens come in four point sizes and multiple barrel styles with an extra comfortable grip and smooth gliding ink in 27 bright and vibrant colors. Those colored inks get me every time! And with FriXion you can stop stressing over written mistakes! FriXion writes smoothly but also allows you to erase at any time, so you can write, erase and rewrite until it’s just right. The high schooler has been thoroughly impressed.
They’re perfect for back to school because you know pens and highlighters are on that school supply list. Also, I’m a bit of an obsessive stationary and writing utensils geek. It makes sense that these are available at Target because that’s always where the really fun stuff is at!
Beside Pilot Pen pens and highlighters at Target, what else do we carry in our bags to make sure we’re super prepared? Drum sticks. The boy child is a drummer so have sticks, will travel. Electrical tape for taping said drumsticks. Often you will find hand warmers because Marching season is cold and it’s always outside. My daughters on the other had includes her cheer uniform, shoes, hair piece, makeup and goodness knows what else! Got big bows?! I do know she never leaves without her notebook, G2 Fashion White Collection and FriXion Light Pastel Highlighters so that she can entertain herself, or study when she’s not on the mat and has some free time.
