It’s that time of year again!

And we are all getting ready for Back-To-School around here! My oldest is starting 10th grade in less than two weeks, then a week after that my other two start! I’ll have a highschooler, middleschooler and preschooler! My life is going to be on a level of crazy that I’ve never seen before and I like crazy! It makes me happy! 

This year we are going to Start Happy®


We are celebrating Thank Goodness It’s Back-School! 

#TGIBTS makes me happy because I love seeing my girls learning and growing. I also love that we have a regular schedule again. This summer has been busy and full of adventures, but this mom is ready for some consistency again in life. I’m also the biggest school supply shopper ever! I LOVE buying pencils and paper and all that other stuff. That includes new underwear. I really feel like every new school year is a fresh start. And that calls for new undies, shoes, clothes and of course a new backpack! 

When I’m happy I tend to do the happy dance!

Whoelse does it? Looking for a new happy dance to celebrate #TGIBTS well, I’ve got the perfect one for you! I even had The Little One dancing along to it with me! 

So as we celebrate this awesome time of year, remember to get your happy dance on and head on over to Walmart or Target where you can pick up Fruit of the Loom® kids underwear bonus packs that have 3 free pairs! That made you smile right? Fruit of the Loom helps everyone Start Happy with new undies, because you wouldn’t want them to start third grade in second grade undies, after all… now would you?

Here is another dance for you because back-to-school-time is a fresh start for mom. The end of a long summer break where mom had to be the entertainment committee. Fresh happy starts must be celebrated. In this instance, with dance!

Why do you love back-to-school-time?

  • Great videos,To be honest the only thing I like about back to school time is that my to do list is going to be getting items ticked off instead of added lol.I love that my kids love school and will be learning but I end up wanting it to be summer break again after about a week lol.

  • We have six growing boys in our family and between them and their dads we can NEVER have enough Fruit of the Loom skivvies in our household!

  • My son is going into fifth grade this year..sniff, sniff!! It won’t be long till I am talking about his senior year,

  • I can’t believe that kids are starting to go back already! My daughter won’t start school until next year but boy, I can’t wait for her to start! I will be doing the happy dance then!

  • I also do a happy dance because I love the back to school time. I want to fetch my son everyday and teach him his lessons and make art projects.

  • I actually LOATHE back to school! My children are late risers (thank God) so the early wake up call is never fun for any of us. I would be happy to keep a house full of noise and screaming children in the fall if it means a house full of quiet and sleeping ones until 10am.

  • Yep, got have new undies for school. Fruit of the Loom is a great brand too, and I don’t say that lightly (we’ve tried a ton of brands).

  • I love FORL products. Back to school time generally means more undies for everyone!

  • My son isn’t in school yet but I love back to school time because I am absolutely obsessed with supplies. I love all of the deals that come out for paper, pens, glue, etc. We do a lot of crafting and I teach him at home on a Preschool level so it is all really helpful.

  • I wonder why kids go to public school at all. What a waste of time…but not everyone wants to take the time to home school. I love Fruit of the Loom, but I feel awful for anyone who has to go back to school this year.

    • Jacqueline I’m not sure why you feel this way. i agree that not all public schools are the perfect place for every child, but I think the same could be said for home schooled children. It’s not for everyone or every child. I invite you to read my archives about our experiences in both public, private and homeschooling. I really believe that blanket statements like this can be harmful. Just as I believe that each child deserves their own educational path.

  • I am looking forward to back to school. My kids tend to get more done with a structured day. During summer they tend to be all over the place or sitting around being lazy. School tends to kick them into gear, so we can’t wait for it to start again!

  • My family uses a lot of fruit of the loom products. We are not looking forward to school. I would so go for home school and keeping them home if the hubbie would let me.

  • The time sure went by so fast. I can’t believe it starts in just a 30 days. I have so much I have to do with getting them clothes etc.

  • I can’t believe that kids are starting to go back already! My son is going into a new school! He’s very excited and yet afraid! Love the videos on your post!

  • It is the start of a new school year. Parents all over the area are out underwear shopping. I just wonder where the underwear all disappears to.

  • My boys are still too little for back to school but I always loved to pick out all of the new pens and pencils, pads of paper and notebooks, and all of the fun school supplies. I know it sounds silly but I just loved getting super organized and finding out who was in my class. I hope my boys have as much love for school as I did.
