This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Clorox. The icky story and opinions are all mine!
I spent the day looking through old photos…reminiscing! You should do it sometime! It will make you laugh and cry. Whether you are a parent or not, the best part of our lives are those spontaneous, imperfect moments. Those moments where memories are created. Unfortunately, some of these moments are downright icky, but Clorox is here to help you laugh through the mess.
Clorox is hosting the Clorox Ick Awards on Wednesday, April 9 from 6-10 p.m. ET. The #ickies promise to be the messiest virtual awards show ever, featuring real-time comedy inspired by your real-life moments. The Second City Communications who has teamed up with Clorox will be turning tweets into #ickies video skits throughout the awards show. You can help pick the winners by voting for your favorites and win big as they give out $2,500 in prizes.
Both of our teens are very active in sports which always involves a mess. Our daughter plays tennis and soccer and our son plays golf. I have learned along the way to keep a few simple supplies in my car for those icky moments. I keep the Clorox Disinfecting Wipes in the car for the kids to wipe off their sports shoes after an event. This way they are getting cleaned up a bit before putting them back in the sports bag. It also helps keep the car clean! The stain remover pen is great to pre-treat any spots before they set in!
Going through the photos, I came across the ones from the Wren Flud Run that had me laughing all over again. What’s so funny is that it will be held again next month. My daughter and 3 of her friends formed a team. They even made shirts! My daughter is very athletic so she was beyond excited! I stayed with a couple of other parents and we followed along to a few events to watch and laugh! It was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. It’s like the one time that it is acceptable to get as dirty as you want….and it’s ok!!!
This is before the race started. I remember Ashlyn squinting in the bright sun. It was a beautiful May day for the 2013 event. Of course, I am there with my camera…..I’m always with my camera. Yes, I’m one of those parents.
Mainly wet….not too dirty…yet!
Now we’re talking! All of the parents and adults manning the station were laughing hysterically. This was the most unexpected part of the event. I don’t hink I ever could have swam under that log! How about you?
Losing a bit of steam here.
I didn’t see this part because we had to go a different way to get back to the finish line. So glad I made it back in time to see this. My first thought…..she’s going to have to walk home! No way that child is getting in my car!
Luckily they were provided a shower tent. She was still a mess! Thank goodness for the Clorox Stain Remover and Color Booster.
