Before all this crazy happened around the world, I considered myself a “busy mom.” Oh the me from 6 weeks ago, how little you knew!
In the old world, I went to work every day to lead a business while my 5-year old twins went to pre-school. Suddenly and seemingly out of nowhere, I found myself leading a business from my living room with my pre-K kiddos interrupting me on calls every 5 minutes. Let me tell you, there is an art to pressing the mute button at just the right moment, in between sentences and sometimes words. It’s a struggle to make sure my kids are getting attention, imagination and play, fresh air, education, etc etc etc. At any given moment I might be in between calls playing hide and seek or in a strategy call pulling beans and weenies out of the oven. Not to mention the extra worry about just keeping them healthy!
Needless to say, I’ll take ANY help I can get to ensure they’re getting what they need with a little less stress on my end. Enter Totes Cirrus Rain Boots, which my kids have grown up with since they were 3 years old. I might be biased, but these boots are truly magical. I’ve always loved them for how light and tough yet soft and comfy they are. Plus the fact that my kids literally refuse to wear any other shoes is a big indicator.
These are no ordinary rain boots! But given everything in the world right now, I can’t tell you how much it means that these boots are baked with anti-microbial properties and are machine washable. M-A-C-H-I-N-E washable rain boots people! So when my twins come inside covered in mud (which is a given) or we come back from a trip to the grocery store, it brings such peace of mind and relief to throw their rain boots in the machine and put clean ones back on their feet.
And given my need for speed and efficiency, I throw in 3 or 4 pairs at a time. Voila! Play. Clean. Peace. Busy mom survives another day with a little help from Totes.
