Brian was so excited to look through the bag of Valentines in his class at school.  It was so awesome hearing the excitement in the kids’ voices and listening to them thank one another!  That’s what I remember about Valentine’s Day when I was a kid. 🙂...

As a mom of 3 boys, I have definitely seen my fair share of laundry stains!  I can also tell you that I KNOW that OxiClean can get some of the toughest stains out of my kids’ clothes.  I can remember the first time OxiClean was recommended to me and a friend told me that […]...
