Every year it happens right around fall time when the weather is getting a little bit colder and the leaves are starting to turn. The little noses around my house start sniffling and sneezing coping with a cold or all of the dust and/or leaf mold that is in the air. I think that is part of it but there is more to it. You see when the kids go back to school in September they are spending more time indoors around many other kids. Also at home we are maybe shutting the windows more in a sense we are trapping the germs inside with us. Being exposed to a bunch of new kids and stale air is a recipe for getting a cold.
When my kids or I are hit with the runny and stuffed up noses we head to the closet and take out a fresh box of Kleenex. Several years ago I thought that any bargain tissue would work but I was wrong. When my kids would get a cold their noses would end all red and irritated after a couple of days. It looked like I had a bunch of Rudolph’s running around my house. All kidding aside they were not only suffering from their colds but their noses were all red and irritated. I remember seeing a commercial about Kleenex on how their tissues were gentler on the nose. I figured hey if they could make gentler toilet paper they could do it for tissues as well.
So from that day forward I only bought Kleenex brand tissues and made sure the kids had the small mini-packs to take too school with them. (Below I will post a coupon for Free Kleenex mini-pack)
I remember my husband telling me that when he was a kid and they ran out of tissues in school they would use those brown paper towels from the bathroom. Imagine that, blowing your nose with one of those. It would be like blowing your nose with sand paper. That must have been awful. Although I guess it was good in a sense because you could tell which kids had colds by looking for the red noses. Then you could tell your kids to stay away from the red nosed kids.
Well if all the schools would stock up on Kleenex maybe they wouldn’t have to deal with this problem. Talking about schools, did you ever have one of those teachers that would use a handkerchief to blow their nose? I did his name was Mr. Snelling and he would carry his handkerchief in his back pocket. I am pretty sure he had allergies or something because he would sneeze like three or four times during every class. Especially during the spring and fall time it would get really bad. The worse would be when he was standing behind you and loudly sneeze while you were trying to concentrate on a math problem. Then he would take out his disgusting handkerchief and begin to wipe and blow his nose. I’m pretty sure he used the same handkerchief for the entire semester and it was pretty gross. Only if I had a box of Kleenex back then I could have anonymously left it on his desk. Then at least his nose and everyone in his classes would have been thankful.
Moving forward today I always make sure my kids bring in a box or two of Kleenex to give to their teachers. That way they don’t have to experience another Mr. Snelling like I did. Just remember with cold, flu, and allergy season upon us keep your Kleenex tissues close by and your nose will be very thankful.
