This post is part of a sponsored campaign with Excedrin® and MomSelect. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
While my daughters have gone in and out of phases over the years, the current one seems to be bickering.
Although they'll happily head off to their schools each morning in good spirits, once they're reunited in the afternoon it is as if they actively look for something to whine, complain or fight over. Why is it that I thought that once the first day of school rolled around that life would somehow be more calm and harmonious?
Apparently I'm not the only one that finds the back-to-school season stressful. In a recent survey by the makers of Excedrin, 69% of parents said that they were excited for their child's first day of school. But that also doesn't change the fact that 44% of parents also say they expect to get a headache during the back to school season.
Tell me about it!
So, if you're also one of the parents that are going to be experiencing a headache this season (whether due to your children, your work or just life), it's probably a good idea to remember to put Excedrin on your back to school shipping list right along with pencils and folders, right?
But as well as battling your headaches, migraines and more, there's another reason to pick up a package of Excedrin the next time you're at the store.
Right now, with that purchase you're able to enter for a chance to win $10,000 for your child's school through the Help Your School Excel with Excedrin Sweepstakes!
From now until September 15, 2013, simply head over to the Excedrin Facebook page and, after registering with your name and contact information, enter the UPC code from your purchase of a participating Excedrin product. Then just sit back, cross your fingers, and hope that the school of your choosing will soon be receiving $10,000!
Another finding from Excedrin's survey is that a large majority of parents (85%) think schools are in need of new or upgraded supplies such as pencils and paper, computers or software and gym/sporting equipment. So what better way to benefit schools while relieving your own aches and pains at the same time?
This great contest ends in less than a week, so be sure to pick up a bottle of Excedrin and visit the Help Your School Excel with Excedrin Sweepstakes today (no purchase necessary, visit the official rules for full information)!
