A March Break Giveaway from Church & Dwight: Spring Forward!

Tomorrow is the last day of school before March Break. 

How did that happen already?!

I’ll be honest: I meant to have this post up an entire week ago….but then we got that wonderful snow storm, and then the weather magically turned to spring, and, well, we’ve pretty much been enjoying as much of the Great Outdoors as we can before we get a crazy cold snap again a la 2014 and 2015.

Anyhow. March Break! The weather forecast in the GTA is looking pretty perfect for spending time outdoors (especially when compared to the last two years) – temps ranging from 9-17 degrees, mostly sun but a little rain… Out come the bikes, the sidewalk chalk, the skipping ropes, the rain boots, and probably even a soccer ball or two. I’m pretty sure that I’m just as excited as the kids to spend hours on end in the fresh air. 

However… that means more (muddy) laundry. Less time to do the laundry! More collapsing at the end of the day in exhaustion. More squeezing my hairy self into a bathing suit at the family swim time at the Rec Centre. 

Church & Dwight Giveaway

Church & Dwight wants to help you get ready for spring – they’ve got a fun little giveaway for our readers inspired by March Break – a little Oxi-Clean laundry detergent to help with those muddy spring stains, vitamins for the whole family to keep you at the top of your game, natural Gravol to calm the stomach for the long car trip to Grandma’s house (or Florida, for you lucky ducks!), night time Rub A5-35 for those sore muscles you’ll have from trying to keep up with the kids, and Nair Argan Oil Hair Remover for those trips to the pool for family swim – and, let’s face it - summer is coming

I want to know what you’ve got planned or what you ended up getting up to for March Break! Were you one of the lucky ones who made the pilgrimage to Florida? Send the kids to camp & work like usual? Take the bikes on their maiden voyage of the year?

I live in Hamilton, Ontario, and love my city. I'm a Netflixer, choral music geek, bookworm, inventor of recipes (I take Artistic Licence on EVERYTHING that I make), wife of one, mother of two, and owner of a neurotic Schnauzer. I respect people who respect others. I love good food that's well done, but my favourite lunch is KD & hotdogs. With ketchup. I'm addicted to Clearance Shopping. I will ALWAYS get the product that I want at the price that I want, eventually.
