Favorite Summer Firsts (with Puracyn)

This is a partnered conversation with Puracyn®. Any opinions are my own.

I have two kids and I remember when they both hit their first birthday I thought about how sad it was that all their “firsts” were over! Firsts of every single holiday, first tooth, first step, first word… every one celebrated! But I was definitely wrong. They are now 4 and 2 years old and we are still celebrating all kinds of “firsts!”

Summer is a wonderful time for new “firsts” as we explore everything around us, play outside, and take trips. Last summer was Ryan’s first time on a bicycle, their first time to the ocean, Rebecca’s first time to the zoo, and Ryan’s first time at preschool!

What fun and “firsts” will this summer bring?!

Ryan’s first t-ball game! He’s taking lessons and they have actual GAMES once a week–it’s the cutest thing, I love watching! He’s thrilled to be playing, too.

We had our first trolley ride this summer. Just last week we had our first campfire in the backyard and Ryan helped make his FIRST s’more!

With all the activity outdoors and the rough-and-tumble nature of toddlers, there are bound to be bumps and scrapes–I think we’ve already had our fair share this summer! With all our fun “firsts,” we can’t forget the first aid. A fall and a scrape can quickly ruin the fun for a toddler! It’s important that I’m always prepared to “fix the boo-boo” and save the day!


Puracyn is the “first step in first aid.” It cleans the wound to help prevent infection and is an easy spray-on, perfect for on-the-go without any mess or water needed. You never know when you might need it! Just this morning we were in our front yard, heading to the car to go to the park, and Ryan scraped his leg on our sprinkler and needed a quick spray! Wounds heal faster when cleaned properly and although they may not be emergencies, they need to be taken care of to prevent infection.

Puracyn® OTC Wound & Skin Care is a unique, patented solution of electrochemically treated saline for cleaning and healing wounds, including cuts, abrasions, irritations and lacerations. The solution mimics compounds naturally produced by the body, making it an ideal aid in wound cleaning and healing.

The non-sting formula in Puracyn® OTC Wound & Skin Care is free of antibiotics, steroids and alcohol so kids won’t complain! It’s great to throw in the car, diaper bag or purse, and keep in your first aid kit!
