Parenting is a stressful endeavor at the best of times – throw in a global pandemic and our anxiety is hitting a whole new level.
Keeping my six kids safe has been a top priority for me during this time. I’ve also been very mindful about making sure they are keeping everyone around them safe as well. I certainly don’t want one of my children being “Patient Zero” in my community. We’ve all done our part to ensure our kids are wearing their masks, washing their hands and physical distancing, but is there more we can be doing?
When I first started my company, Mabel’s Labels, it was because of the frustration around my kids losing their belongings or having their items accidentally sent home with another child from daycare. Now, labeling belongings is also helpful for preventing germy mix-ups at school and daycare.
Having all children’s items personalized means a preschooler isn’t taking a drink out of the wrong sippy cup, or a student isn’t bringing home the wrong school uniform sweater.
These are tricky times for families and let’s all just continue to do our best to keep everyone safe.
