This summer has been a little different than any other I've ever experienced, the main reason being that I'm super pregnant and dealing with all the "fun" symptoms that accompany pregnancy. While feeling little Delainey kick and nesting have been two of the positive symptoms as of late, I'll be real and tell you that being 30lbs heavier than my previous weight and dealing with the all of the additional hormones coursing through my body has been interesting.
If you're also pregnant, dreading the heat every single day, or just simply not a big fan of summertime, the Target Clean Care Box is the answer! The contents of these boxesinclude everything a woman needs to beat the heat and most of it fits right into your handy-dandy little purse... Well, for some of us it all fits in a purse but I've always been one to overstuff my handbag so when I saw all the goodies in this box I knew where most of it was heading. If you're a bit like myself (or Mary Poppins, for that matter), you'll want to keep all of this in your bag just in case it's needed. If not, I still suggest you stock up on some of these heat-combating products while they are on sale at Target!

If you're expecting or around anyone who is, I suggest you always keep a pack of Kleenex® Facial Tissue in your bag! As emotional as pregnant women can get, it's easy to burst into tears at any moment.
