I have always been one for cleanliness and organization, then I had twins. I knew that my OCD was going to have to take the back burner, just like my over grown roots, pedicures, and unibrow. I gave into messy floors, hand prints, gooey kisses and the occasional crib blowout. However, I refused to stop the art of neatness completely.
I strive to keep the boys as orderly as possible and could single-handedly keep IKEA and The Container Store in business. There is nothing more gratifying than knowing exactly where a much-needed plastic spider or favorite puzzle piece is. This all changed for me when the boys started daycare. The act of knowing where everything and anything is/was goes down the tubes. All the things I worked so hard to keep organized in our house were now leaving the “safe zone”. I worried that the boys wouldn’t come home with their coats, cups, lunch boxes, gloves, hats, snowsuits, boots, etc and that we in return would be new owners of numerous clothing items and maybe even some other child’s much-needed lovey ( a serious issue if your kid has a favorite blanket).
I didn’t want to sew on names to the boys clothes, since, well, I don’t know how to sew. The act of ironing on names seemed less than appealing as well since my iron is still in a box from my bridal shower, four years ago. No way was I going to use a permanent marker either. Keeping the boys clothes in good shape has earned me some awesome hand-me-downs. So my quest to find a suitable alternative began.
When I stumbled upon Name Bubbles I immediately fell in love! These labels are hands down the best personalized name stickers on the planet! They are made with non-toxic, eco-friendly inks and are waterproof. Yes, this means they actually stay on after a trip through the dishwasher and washing machine. They have a great stick to them but don’t leave a grubby residue. There are so many different styles, colors and sizes that you may find yourself ordering them for everything. Great packaging, phenomenal Customer Service and quick delivery. What more can you ask for?
Since discovering Name Bubbles the little dudes have come home with all their stuff. We haven’t even lost a mitten- which to me is a huge accomplishment. We still get a straggler hat or single sock now and again from a nameless, possibly cold-footed little munchkin. No one wants to end up in the Lost and Found people!
