Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house….my family was sleeping as I quietly panicked about the wrapping and planning and stocking stuffing still needing to be done.
Rinse and repeat.
Santa and I high-five as I head to bed and he finishes up the details, snacks on the cookies, drinks the milk and ho-ho-ho’s his way in to the night.
Until the moment I panic and realize I’ve forgotten something crucial for Christmas morning: batteries.
Whether it’s the big kids or the small ones – you want to make sure that handheld GPS, those gaming systems and that wireless mouse are all ready to be used right away. Chances are pretty good that putting one of this year’s hot toys from Amazon or from Target under the tree will mean a battery need.
Think about this: 85 percent of parents remember the look of delight when their child saw a battery-powered toy
come to life for the first time and on the flip side – 39 percent of moms with babies or toddlers recall a tantrum when
a toy’s batteries went out. Let’s avoid that possibility altogether, shall we?
I confess, Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™ batteries are always on my list for the first time I head out shopping – on Black Friday. You won’t catch me making this mistake twice.
Now, when I’m heading to bed on Christmas Eve, I DO settle in for a long winter’s nap.
(At least until those small people I love so much come bounding in to my bedroom before the sun rises.)
Happy Holidays, my friends…and may you always have the batteries you need to keep your holidays powered up.
