On Friday I received a wonderful package containing a great selection of Hanes products. Now I know from shopping for three children, Hanes makes great underwear, socks, under shirts and I remember awhile back buying sweat shirts, but that is all I pretty much knew of them. I was so excited to see that they have a nice sized clothing line as well. There is stuff for anyone, any size, any age. Ok, so back to my package of clothing. My youngest who is 3 spotted her goodies which included Tinker Bell underwear, which she was ever so thrilled with along with some socks, two shirts and a matching skort. Of course she tried everything on, one right after the other and instantly formed her favorite, even though I loved them all on her, she is her own self and has already developed her own sense of style. She particularly loved the Monkey Tee and Tinkerbell Underwear.
When my son, who is almost 7 heard the commotion, he came in to see what he can score. He was thrilled to find new socks, new underwear, a zippered hooded sweatshirt (in red…which he happens to be playing on the Red Sox in this seasons little league, so it was as if it was meant to be!), a long shirt tee, short shirt tee and sweatshirt. He tried everything on and was really happy, as much as a boy could be, about his new clothes. The one thing I noticed, he didn’t really ever take off that red zippered hooded sweat shirt, which may warrant a good washing by now!
My oldest, being a girl, age 9, going on 19 loved to see her new tees. She wore one yesterday and loved it because it was a longer style; everything according to her style needs to be long and semi-fitted.
For me, as a mom, actually getting to see at first hand the quality and style of the clothing is what impressed me the most. They were able to hold up well with three kids, different ages, different sizes, different styles. That right there is a huge task to tackle. We all really enjoyed our Hanes clothing and you can to by simply going to http://www.hanes.com and checking out the different links for girls and boys. (And, if you have time, find a few things for yourself!) One big contributing factor for our family is cost of clothing and I was happy to see that Hanes was priced for perfection! With Hanes, in my opinion, you just can’t go wrong. Style + cost + quality = One happy mom!

Kathy Kaehler, expert fitness trainer stated,
“Lack of time is one of the biggest reasons that people, especially children, don’t exercise regularly; between school and extra-curricular activities, the days sometimes don’t feel long enough! So, when there isn’t enough time for a full work out, do a little at a time. Shorter periods of exercise can also help hold your younger children’s attention better and keep them interested. The “one minute workout” is a great way to put fitness into your children’s day, at the beginning, middle and end, if possible. With your kids, do 10 punches, 10 march-in-place, 10 jumping jacks, 10 touch-the-floor and jump-up, and finish with 10 run-in-place. You’re done in just one minute and best of all, you can do it anywhere in the house and at any time! I also encourage your family to walk more. Even if it’s just once or twice a week, 10 minutes of brisk walking will get everyone’s collective heart rate up, and you’ll be spending quality time together, too ( no cell phone allowed!) which fosters closer relationships and better communication.”
And here is another great idea that Kathy makes, have the kids help carry the groceries!!!
Best of all, busy moms can create a customized family calendar with different icons for all the different activities in their children’s schedules such as soccer, homework, movie night, dance class, etc… just drop and drag. Wonderful, easy tool that can help keep your whole family fit, and organzied! Take a peak at the whole Kathy Kaehler article by visiting her page at Hanes.com – Kathy Kaehler
