#BounceBack While You Transition From Summer To Fall

I am part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network and was compensated for writing this post but all opinions are 100% my own. Does it seem to you the kids start to count down the days to summer in January? While they are eagerly awaiting that final bell ring, we are desperately trying to fill their summer with activities to keep them busy. While many kids go to a day camp while their parents work, other will go to church or sleep away camp, take art classes or learn to ride a horse. Other kids will be riding their scooters, bikes and skates around the neighborhood. Many parents will be buying a pool or a trampoline to keep the kids occupied. The one thing these things all have in common in an increased amount of dirty laundry there seems to be. We have a creek in our yard, a pool, a trampoline and a dead end street for the kids to ride on. I have a container on the deck for their shoes and another for their towels, socks, and other things they can take off outside. I probably do at least 2 loads of laundry per day during the summer, if not more. Now we are bouncing back  from the end of summer and are transitioning into Fall and getting back to school. With Bounce Fresh, they make that easier for me.
Transition From Summer To Fall

Transition From Summer To Fall

The Bounce Fresh products are made by the P&G Company who cater to almost 5 billion customers with 50 trusted brands. These brands, like Bounce Fresh, are among the most well known brands in many households. Their goal is to provide the best products that are made from the most superior materials found worldwide. You may be familiar with the Bounce dryer sheets, developed in the 1970’s, which now come in 7 amazing scents. These powerful little guys are twice as effective as other brands, softening and freshening, while providing static control and lint and hair repellency. Bounce dryer sheets can be found at all major retailers for a suggested retail price of $4.89-5.99 for a 150-count box. Did you know there were other products in the Bounce line that people are using in their quest to #BounceBack from summer as well as the rest of the year? One of the newer products that is very popular, including in my home, is the Bounce Dryer Bar. This innovative product, which comes in 3 varieties,  attaches to the inside of your dryer and lasts for months. You can also find the new Bounce Lint and Freshness Rollers and the Bounce Ironing Spray to help you #BounceBack from outside the dryer. All these products are made with you in mind to make your life easier. I use a Bounce sheet under the seats in the car. I also have one in Caitlin’s gym bag so she is not walking around school all day with a stinky bag! “Keep Bounce out of the reach of children and pets. Hang the sheet freely or place in an open envelope to avoid direct contact with fabrics.”

I feel for my kids as they transition from summer to fall because it is tough. They have gone from staying up late and sleeping all morning to the complete opposite. Instead of spending all day actively playing in the yard, at the park or at summer camp, they are sitting in a classroom for most of their day. I try to make the change as easy o them as I can by slowly changing their routines and schedules. This will make the moving from the freedom of summer to the constraints of fall a little less stressful. How does your family bounce back from this transition period? The folks at Bounce would love to see your Vine videos and stories on how you and our family have bounced back from summer or another hiccup in your life. I would love to hear about your stories in the comment section of the blog so we can all share and relate to one another’s stories. Be sure to keep up with Bounce on Facebook and Twitter.

  3. I’ve been a mother since I was 15 (now 30) but luckily I’ve been married tomy hubby through the whole young mother process & just celebrated our 15th anniversary! I also got arthritis all over my entire body at 24 & it was certainly something I had to bounce back from but doing much better now! Thank you!

  4. I bounced back from a year in which I got divorced (leaving me on my own with three kids, two of whom are autistic) followed by having my house foreclosed on – six years later, I’m happily remarried, have a fourth child, and my husband and I recently bought a house!

  5. I was incredibly discouraged about my job prospects a few years ago. I looked and looked but never got a call back. Finally, I pulled all my strength together and applied to Graduate School. After 2 years, I completed my Masters degree and now I have an amazing job with an amazing family!:)

  6. I lost a ton of weight and had a hot super model body by eating clean and working out!

    But I bounced back from that quite quickly; i’m sure you don’t want to hear how I gained all my weight back because it’s a bit cliche but yes, that is the best bounce back story of my life and it just happens so fast too! 🙂

  7. I bounced back after being laid off for a year by taking a more stressful job with less money but am so grateful to just be working.

  8. I have bounced back (only with my good Lord’s grace) from losing a child with leukemia. It was 22 years ago.

  9. I went into hospital on 9-17-13 for an infection. in my blood. Since then, I spent almost 4 weeks in a Rehab. facility on anti biotic therapy. I. came home Tuesday. Each day I’ M getting a little better.

I talked to my boss & cross trained in a different position. Now I am more valuable at my company being able to bounce back & forth between positions. I still didn’t think it would be enough extra hours but I didn’t take into consideration how many people would call off or go on vacation which has yielded me enough to support my family.

It was a scary time but we bounced back by surrounding ourselves with people that care, trusting the amazing doctors at the children’s hospital, and believing in our sons strength.

  46. This past summer, I bounced back from having a baby. I came home 4 hours after having my daughter (by my choice) so I wouldn’t have to leave my toddler son.

  47. A painting I thought I had ruined, when it was looking terrible I just kept at it, and finally it actually ended up looking better than I thought it would to begin with. I was ready to just trash it but I stayed with it and ended up with something wonderful!

  48. Me & the kids bounce back every time my husband gets deployed. We each pick up the slack & help with daddy’s chores. Then we have to bounce back again once he gets home, but that is always easier!

  49. Hmmm…bouncing back. The first thing that comes to my mind & this isn’t a major ‘bounce-back’ like Mya’s, is the ‘Falling Back’ and “Spring Forward’. I hate the time change! I wish it was left on Daylight Savings Time and called Standard Time. Some states are lucky, they don’t observe the time change. I think most everyone agrees, wether young or older, trying to adjust or ‘bounce back’ from the time change can be difficult! One option is to rally for No Time Change, i.e. like a petition on a well known web site is a good place to start.
    In the meantime, what I try to do: first, I make sure I have reminders everywhere of the upcoming time change. I try to make sure we don’t have anything major scheduled during that weekend. Making sure I get extra rest(I really have to push myself on this one!) I just try to keep it simple for the most part.

  50. I bounced back from an abusive relationship, kicked him to the curb and stayed single and loving life now!!

  51. I am still bouncing back from a back injury. I am going to physical therapy twice a week and doing my exercises at home.

  52. I bounced back by getting up earlier and going to bed earlier. I get much more done since I’m evidently a morning person!

  53. Bouncing back from summer is always hard!! I’m worried about our bounce back after our 10 day vacation coming up. We’re taking my son’s entire fall break to go to Disney! Yeah, it going to be so hard to come back and have to go to school the next day because we are just going to want to keep on playing!! 😉

  54. I think I have a harder time bouncing back into the school year than my son does! I have to juggle driving him and several friends to and from school, my work time, dinners, etc. I miss summer! 🙂
