Wherever you might live, I think all parents can agree that it is important to be ready for anything. That means always toting around thinks like snacks, crayons, a spare toy or two and facial tissue.
But friends, I feel especially strong about the facial tissue matter as a Southern woman, whether my kids need the tissues or not. It seems that every time I turn around I've got yet another reason to reach for a tissue for myself; can any of you identify with thsese particular examples?
1. Steel Magnolias
I swear, friends, every other week I see a Pinterest pin or a Youtube clip of something hilarious or absolutely heart-wrenching from Steel Magnolias, the cinematic masterpiece that portrays the Southern woman to a T. I'll try to just read the one quote, or watch the one clip, and before I know it, I'm knee deep in Shelby and have to go find my tissues because I look like this:
2. Sweaty Sweet Tea
My poor sweet tea. It just can't help but break out in a sweat in these sweltering Tennessee summer temps. I feel the need to help my beverage out every 20 minutes or so by wiping her off real quick. It's so embarrassing to sweat like that! I'm ever so glad that I don't (if you didn't know, Southern women DON'T sweat. We glisten, and only when absolutely necessary…).
There's nothing quite like the sight of a front yard full of beautiful azaleas. But bless their little hearts, they are the death of me.
A trail full of blooms may be picturesque, but it sends me into a sneezing fit of epic proportions. It is CRITICAL that I have some tissues on hand. And I can't very easily carry a whole box of tissues in my purse, even though I might require an entire box before the day's end. Better to have something compact that will still provide me with plenty of tissues to endure all that beauty.
Angel Soft® On-The-Go Facial Tissues
I recently headed to Walmart and found these great tissues from Angel Soft®. They have, get this, SEVEN TIMES more tissues than 10 sheet facial tissue pocket packs. That'll get me through an entire week of pollen, sipping tea and hitting Ouiser. See if you can find them the next time you are out. They are so very handy to have around any time you find yourself in need of some tissue, even if your needs look a little different than mine!
