Be Prepared for Summer Fun with First Aid Essentials and More from HEALTHY ESSENTIALS! {#Moms4JNJConsumer}

With summer well underway, my kids wake up every morning eager to embrace the day. Are we going swimming? Do I have tennis lessons? Do I have ballet? Arts and crafts? Can I go outside? Am I having a play date? Can I go ride my bike? Whew.

And, while both girls are passionate about play, play, play all year long, it's easy to say that summer play can quickly become the most overwhelming. From the sunscreen to the beach towels to the ballet slippers, my mind feels constantly on edge that we might be leaving the house and forgetting something.

Is it their fault that they aren't much help in remembering things when they're so focused on the PLAY aspect of the day?

However, while it would be annoying to realize that I left someone's swim goggles at home when we arrive at the pool or didn't pack the requested grapes when we sit down for our between-activities picnic lunch, those can be easily ignored.

What can't is the way that my lovely, accident-prone 5-year-old manages to hurt herself approximately every 45 minutes throughout the day. Scrapes, scratches, splinters, cuts, bruises, bumps... apparently it just wouldn't be a summer day of play if there weren't tears involved.

Which is why it is extremely important for me to be prepared to deal with every little mishap that might occur, no matter if we're still at home, are sliding at the playground or are simply strolling down the sidewalk.

Every mom knows that having essential first aid items on hand can quickly turn an accident into a distant memory and get the entire family back to doing what they love... which is why we stay stocked up on Johnson & Johnson's fantastic array of HEALTHY ESSENTIALS products!

I have a lot of these products for Summer and really like the Neosporin because it really helps with skin problems in the summer. The Sunscreen is the best though!
