All You Need Is a Tyrannosaurus Rex

All You Need Is a Tyrannosaurus Rex

 

 

 

Sometimes in life…..all you need is a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

On that long-ago first day of school my son ran into the house and tossed his backpack on the floor with all of the angst and despair a brand-new first grader could muster.  He eyed me mournfully and declared, “Mom…..we have a bully.”

Startled I said, “A bully?  Really?  In first-grade?”

“Yes,” he stated emphatically. “And he’s big.  And strong.  And mean.  And he pushes kids on the playground.”

 

And that was just the beginning.

Daily….the legend of the bully grew.

There were stories of how he took kids lunches and made mean faces at them and pulled a girl’s hair in math class and punched the air and wrote on the bathroom walls.

And one day he even stole someone’s quarter in the lunchroom.

He was the scariest of the scary.

And toughest of the tough.

And the very meanest of the mean.

Gray Hutch

And I worried.

What should I do?

Should I call the school?  Should I talk to the teacher?  Should I call the principal?

Truly.  It was overwhelming.

 

And then…..one day all of a sudden…..it stopped.

All the tales and the stories of the hair-pulling and the lunch-taking and all those mean faces……I never heard another word about them.

Not another word about the bully…..ever.

 

 

To say I was curious is an understatement.  

So one day…..I casually asked my son, “What ever happened to the bully?  I never hear you talk about him anymore?  Is he still bothering anyone?”

My son turned to me and stared. “Mom…..one day he came up to me on the playground.  And he stared at me with his really mean eyes and started making a really mean face at me and clenching his fist.  And I was so scared.”

Panicked, I said, “The bully came up to you?  On the playground?  What did you do?”

And then he smiled.

He smiled the sweetest most wonderful toothless grin I have ever seen.

“Easy, Mom,” he shrugged.  ”I spun around to face him…..

……and turned into a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Then I growled and showed him my claws.  And he turned and ran……

…….and he never ever bothered us again.”

 

 

Meet my Tyrannosaurus Rex.
And it’s taking on the flu.
With every wipe and every swipe….it gets rid of cold and flu viruses.
The flu can be scary and overwhelming and the biggest bully…..ever….in the history of ever.
 
So help prevent the spread of germs by practicing healthy habits like these:

Wash hands frequently: Wash hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds.

Disinfect germ hot spots: Disinfect the surfaces you touch frequently – like the remote control, doorknobs, light switches, faucets and plastic toys with Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes to kill flu viruses.

Do the elbow cough: cough and sneeze into your elbow instead of your hands to help prevent the spread of germs by touch.

Follow good health guidelines:  Eat right, exercise and get plenty of sleep to help boost your body’s ability to fight the effects of colds and flu.

 

And remember…….never ever face down a bully…..

….without a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

  1. I know where he gets it from- mama rex!

  2. Barbara Bachus :

    I am an elementary school teacher and in spite of every effort to teach my students about germs, someone always gets sick…..Lysol disinfecting wipes are in my office and used on everything from doorknobs, keyboards,scooter handles to playground balls. Love them! Barbara

  3. Wipes are great, my kids help clean using them. Who wouldn’t want to get rid of the germs.

  4. Actually — these wipes are my favorite! I use them all the time around the kitchen — especially after working with raw meat!

  5. I love just regular old Clorox bleach….great for keeping my whites white and also great for diluting and using as a disinfectant. Thank you!

  6. We had a go ’round with the flu…don’t want to repeat. T-Rex is a good idea!

  7. I work in a medical office and use Clorox wipes daily to wipe down door handles, pens, my keyboard, exam beds, just to name a few things! Oh, I absolutely love the power of a first grader! Who else would have known that T-Rex does conquer all!! Even bullies!

  8. I “T-Rex” any and everything … no flu as of yet this season!

  9. What a fantastic analogy. :-) The Flu is a mean one indeed and I use Clorox wipes daily practically every second of the day to keep our surfaces in the house and car and elsewhere germ free. As a former first grade teacher I went through at least one container of Clorox wipes weekly wiping down desks, doorknobs, tables, pencils, you name it. I still use them regularly in my Sunday school classroom. I also use the Clorox sprays. I love everything Clorox, maybe a bit too much. But it sure ca nclean!
    Loved your story of your first grader. I can just picture those t-Rex teeth and growl that he gave that bully. Way to go! :-)

  10. Just like my mom did, I use Clorox as my “go to” cleaner. I love the smaller concentrated bottles now- so easy to carry! I use it on my kitchen counters, on my tile floors, and the laundry on all my white sheets and towels. Just last night I headed to the grocery store for what…more Clorox!

  11. I love their disinfecting wipes and use them all the time! Whoever invented them is a GENIUS because they really are so “handy”. But can I just say that I love your story and will never ever look at my wipes without smiling and hearing them “ROAR” as they seek and destroy all the germs lurking in my house! YAY! Clorox the T-Rex!!!! :-D

  12. I love Clorox wipes. I use them in every room of my house. My favorite is orange and lemon because they smell so fresh and clean. Thanks for sharing!

  13. Great post!!

  14. Those Clorox Wipes are my favorite!! I use them every single day!

  15. I am the hiring and operational supervisor for Victoria’s Secret – one of my responsibilities is the monthly ordering of our supplies for our store. We have various cleaning and disinfecting products to choose from. I always choose Clorox Wipes! Our 35 employees and core staff wipe down our break tables, head sets, telephones, computer, file cabinets and more! I prefer Clorox Wipes for strong cleaning power, pleasant scent , and I know that if it is a Clorox product it will be good.

  16. And who says dinosaurs are extinct!!…good for your little (then) T-Rex!!….and those Clorox Wipes have been a staple in my house for years…great stuff!!…Have a wonderful day!

  17. Love the story! I love the disinfecting wipes because I have my house on the market and there is no quicker way to clean!

  18. Awww…one of your best stories yet!!! As for Clorox Wipes….they are the bomb, i even keep them in my car!

  19. Wipe are my favorite too! I use them in the kitchen frequently to wipe up raw meat spills and other yuckiness, and in the bathroom, well….everywhere! With 6 kids, we are always trying to prevent a cold or sickness from spreading to the next person! I couldn’t live without my Clorox wipes!

  20. I use these wipes EVERY day! I also like the Clorox soft scrubbing GEL for my stainless sink. XO, Pinky

  21. What a fabulous playground story! Go T-Rex. And I too love those disinfecting wipes. In fact, just heard my daughter sneezing so need to head out and wipe off the surfaces she just sneezed on!

    :) Linda

  22. I am so happy I found your blog. You are an amazing story teller Karianne, and I look forward to finding your blog posts in my email inbox every day. Thank you for always inspiring;)

  23. I love Clorox Clean-up!!!!

  24. I love this story. :)

  25. Last year during the flu season, I used Clorox Wipes to clean the desk tops in my eighth grade language arts classroom. One sheet, using both sides, wiped three of the twenty-eight desk tops. If it’s been some time since you left the halls of middle school, recall these desk tops were used by one hundred thirty-two students each day. Believe me, there were a lot of “designs”, love notes?, and “news flashes” that I cleared. I bought the wipes each time there was a sale at my local grocer’s and stocked my classroom cabinet.
    But my favorite Clorox cleaner is their Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Bleach that I use in our three toilets weekly. Easy to use and does its trick to keep these toilet bowls clean. No essay needed here.

  26. ME: ( to the flu! ) RAWWWwrrrrRRRR!!!! :)
    I ues the CLOROX wipes & the CLOROX spray on everything i possibly can ! :) this time of year, it’s all mom’s vs. sickness ! it gives me a peace of mind ( atleast) when i know that i have sprayed or wiped anything i can in order to keep the flu “bully” out of my house :)

    [ get your claws out mom's ! ] ;)

    p.s. love your blog — always leaves me feeling lighter after reading :) happy day !

  27. Great story Karianne! Everyone needs a T-Rex! My favorites are the wipes of course, and seems like I’m using Clorox bleach mixed with water for many other jobs! ;)

  28. Comet Spray Bathroom Cleaner is my favorite and the wipes are great for quick cleanup.
    Love your little bully story!

  29. Clorox wipes are the best! Thanks for a great give away! I am glad the bully is no more.

  30. I love Clorox wipes too, especially for doorknobs, banisters, and remote controls! I also love Clorox all purpose cleaner for countertops and sinks!
    Hope I win!
    Kara

  31. We use the clorox wipes every day at our house-which has meant no flu so far-THANK YOU clorox :)

  32. Whenever the store is offering a buy one get one on Clorox wipes I buy up! Then, during flu season I send in extra “free” ones to school for the teacher to use in the classroom. The teachers appreciate not havng to buy from their own pocket AND having a healthy class.

  33. We love clorox wipes! When we have unexpected company
    my kids know their job is to do a quick 3 “wipes” bathroom clean.

  34. I use the Clorox wipes at school. People are dropping like flies there. So far so good!

  35. I’ve been lax this season at using these great wipes to keep the germs in check – and now I have come down with a crummy cold. Hopefully I’ll repent and do better so none of the family catches it!

  36. This was adorable! Loved that story. I use Clorox wet wipes all the time every day. I also love liquid clorox with my whites!
    Karen

  37. You tell the best stories – I love coming here to read them – I have 5 kids so that means lots of germs and very little (little) time to spend cleaning. Clorox wipes are my T-Rex too. I buy them at Sams in the 4 packs. Then put one in each room. Every bathroom, kitchen and the playroom.

  38. I use these wipes every day all over the house as I tend to be a germaphobe! Thankfully, the flu has not made a visit to our house this winter.

  39. T- Rex is a great one to take care of you! This is such a cute story! You are a wonderful mom! I use the “T-Rex” Clorox wipes too! They’re amazing! They go all over our house!

  40. Yay to your little guy for being so smart! Love this story, and so thankful he wasn’t hurt by the bully. And I’m so thankful for good cleaning products to keep our homes clean, like Clorox wipes! Love them! So far so good around here, I’ve been pushing our home-brew Elderberry Kombucha like crazy! So thankful for healthy natural things as well, that help protect us from viruses. That’s another one of my T-Rex strategies. :D

  41. I just happen to like plain ‘ol Clorox bleach in a jug.

    Bliss

  42. What an adorable (and brave) little boy! SUch a cute story. I keep Clorox wipes on hand all of the time… they stay under my bathroom sinks for easy wipe-downs in the morning; in my kitchen for quick clean-ups, and in my laundry room because I can’t stand dusty appliances and the least bit of mold in my washer. Thank goodness for Costco and stocking up!

  43. I discovered that 2 of the wipes fit perfectly on a (swiffer) mop. Quick and easy for a bathroom floor. Can’t beat Clorox.

  44. Clorox wipes are my go to for disinfecting surfaces including the phone and keyboard, remote and mouse!

  45. Love your story KariAnne. Clorox is a must-have and I love the wipes. I keep them in the cars too.
    Don’t for get to take one along to wipe the handle of the shopping cart in the grocery store.
    We all need to do our part to fight germs.

  46. I like the bleach too–use it on our cloth diapers!

  47. I love the Anywhere Hard Surface Spray…I literally spray it “anywhere” No harsh smell, just clean!
    Thanks for a great giveaway.

  48. I am the queen of the Clorox wipes!! Yesterday I had my Kindergarteners wipe down their pencils, scissors, desks… If only I could wipe each of them down :) …I literally wipe their tables down twice a day. Trying to keep the cooties away!!!

  49. Believe it or not, I use those wipes in my bathroom. I can’t stand wiping down the bathroom with a rag I have to constantly wash out…ewww…so, these are perfect for me!

  50. Funny. :) I LOVE those wipes; I keep a canister of them under all my bathroom sinks.

  51. Love those wipes! I don’t take on a little boy bathroom without them!
    On a totally separate note, I have that same bunny plate! I found it at a thrift store a couple weeks ago! Wow, I thought it was a good find when I saw it, but now I REALLY think it’s cool! :)

    Have a good end of the week!
    –Katie

  52. Oh I loved this. Cracked me up! I love Clorox Wipes. They are a staple in my house!
    Have a good day,
    Sherry

  53. I sound like a germ- a- phob but every day when my husband comes home from the office I am asking him if someone is wiping down all of the doorknobs and elevator buttons at that office to cut down on germs being passed around! I am a firm believer in Clorox wipes!

  54. Hi KariAnne, I love the bully story. We do use those clorox wipes. Joyous Wishes, Linda

  55. Good for your son, Karianne. I once had an experience like your son, and I did the same thing and stood up for myself and it worked too. I use those Clorox wipes at work all the time … so convenient.

  56. That was such a cute story about the bully. Good for your son. I love Clorox Clean Up with Bleach. Great stuff!

  57. You are the best Storyteller and this T-Rex story was so good too. Love Clorox wipes and bleach. Great way to kill germs.

  58. Clorox wipes are what we use at the library to wash down books and surfaces – it’s our go-to for germ-killing!!

    Love your little T-Rex! I guess “the bully” finally got some attention, didn’t he? :)

  59. I wonder if turning into a T-Rex will take care of some of the bullies I have in real life. :) Love this story!

    Have a good day!

  60. Last year I replaced all of my colorful towels in the house with plain white. What a great decision! I feel like towels harbor a lot of bacteria and now I just use Clorox bleach every time I wash them. I can see and smell the clean!

  61. What a great story! In college, my roommates and I started buying these Clorox wipes primarily because we were too lazy to get out the ole’ sponge and soap method. I’ve been using them ever since!

  62. Great post!!!
    I am a Clorox girl as well. Clorox bleach. toilet bowl cleaner and Clorox wipes! Got to keep the bad bully germs at bay.
    Cheers, Gee

  63. Clorox wipes are great! Cute story about the TRex!

  64. Love, love, love those Clorox wipes, couldn’t live without them!! Love your son and his bully solution too. Many thanks for the chance to win!

  65. Heather Guerard :

    Loved this story! We use Clorox wipes and disinfecting spray to clean down EVERYTHING ! Every keyboard,phone,doorknob ,toilet,sink or handle that someone touches is wiped or sprayed. When someone comes to visit and they have a cough or cold as soon as I say goodbye at the door the wipes and spray come out! My kids just roll their eyes and say “Here she goes…”

  66. Loved your post today … the story was cute, the pictures are so pretty and … a surprise ending. I use the Clorox wipes all of the time. I hit the doorknobs throughout the house, inside and out. I do the phones (especially cell) and the remotes and the keyboards. Well, you know. As more and more people all around the community go down with a variety of nasty viruses, I’m am wiping away and holding my breath. Love your blog.

  67. Good, old fashioned Clorox bleach…in with the white bedding, in the toilet, to scrub the Shower. Tried other brands but they don”t hold a candle to Clorox!

  68. We use the clorox wipes daily this time of year! I love the orange ones!!

  69. Wow, Clorox wipes are good for disinfecting, too? LOL I use them for everything…to clean toilets, remove soap scum from showers, dissolve grease on stovetops…seriously, they are my #1 cleaning product! And they kill germs, too? Cool!

  70. We use a lot of Clorox in our house! Clorox wipes for the counters, Clorox bleach for the wash, Clorox Foaming Cleaner for the toilets. I don’t know what I’d do without my Clorox cleaners! I always feel so much better after having cleaned with my Clorox!

    Thanks for the cute story…. your son has quite an imagination!

  71. I love the story. We use Clorox wipes and Clorox toilet cleaner. I haven’t used some of the other products people listed here, I’ll have to give them a try.

  72. Plain old Clorox bleach is my good old standby cleaner and disinfectant!

  73. We use the disinfecting wipes and the toilet bowl cleaner.

  74. My favorite are the clorox wipes, I use them every where home and office!

  75. tweet–https://twitter.com/mami2jcn/status/294512028368896000

  76. What a cute story! Perhaps you have a writer on your hands?! I love and can’t live without Clorox wipes. I use them all.the.time. At the office and home and let’s not forget the steering wheel of the car!!

  77. love the wipes! i work in a medical office and we can’t live without them! they keep me from bringing cooties home to my family from work!

  78. I love the Clorox Wipes! Great to use between cleanings to wipe down faucets, door knobs, lightswitches etc.. We always have them on hand at our house.

  79. I use alot of just the plain Colorox bleach.

  80. I love the Clorox wipes and use them around the house

  81. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Lysol Disinfecting Wipes….I use them every single morning at work to wipe down my shared work-station and all the time at home to keep germs to a minimum! Couldn’t function without them!

  82. I am addicted to the Clorox Wipes. I pretty much swipe everything in our house that we touch during the cold and flu season. I even convinced my kids to play the “Germ Catcher” game and do the swiping for me, even the car, our phones, computer keyboards, you name it. We all love the germ catcher game. All I have to do is get out the container and say, “Catch those germs” and it is done!

    Some bullies definitely need a T-Rex to put them in their place! Too funny! And much more effective than if the teacher had had to step in.

  83. I use these same wipes at home and work all day long! Access was denied to the official rules link. Boo hoo..I couldn’t get another chance!
    Thanks anyway for the one chance to win.

  84. I love how T-Rex out did the bully. What a smart boy you have. I wonder if I turned into T-rex if that would work on an adult bully that I know???

    I should have stock in Clorox. I use just plain old Clorox in my laundry to make my whites brighter and I also use it my bathrooms. Whoever invented Clorox wipes is a genius. I love them. I use them on everything. I wipe all door handles, key boards, remotes lunch boxes,back packs you name it I wipe it. I think my husband thinks I have lost it but I feel so much better knowing that things are disinfected and we are keeping all the germs away. I have Clorox wipes in my car and when we travel I put some in my suitcase. You just never know when they will come in handy.

  85. I keep Clorox Disinfecting Wipes in my daughter’s bathroom. They make a quick job of tidying up when she’s in a hurry to get to class or work.

  86. Aw, good for him!! Brave little toothless T Rex!
    I swear by my Clorox wipes — I spend an HOUR every week wiping down my classroom with these things! Pencils, chairs, toys, legos, ponies, books, the computer keyboard. You name it, it knows Clorox!
    Fingers crossed — I would love a $1000 gift card!
    xo Heidi
    PS — thanks for hosting!

  87. I use Clorox bleach to wash towels and sheets.

  88. I use the wipes all the time! Great for in the car, too. Wipe down the car handles now and again.

  89. I love Clorox wipes and I use them year round on door handles, I keep the door handles clean and disinfected because they are touched by everyone and spread the most germs so I keep em clean and germ free, only takes a minute, I hit all the doors with a wipe in each hand and let them air dry. ~Diane

  90. Forgive me for not reading every story but I taught first grade. I did not take bullying lightly because it never stops…the bully gains strength and becomes revered by peers as they get older for being a bully. Some parents–yes strange–to your face say they will talk to their child about being a bully but at home the child is rewarded (gang prep)….tell the teacher if this kid is bullying everywhere. Your child was so specific where, to whom, and even though he was bullied and the kid walked off, it may not be the end–the bully may just be more cruel to another kid. Yes, bullying has always been around. But as a teacher of first graders, I reminded very openly without naming the name, why hang around mean people when there’s nice people. And I’d name all the nice kids all around the bully as good friends and why. We did a week unit on bullying. Our school had zero tolerance. Bullies are sneaky and do their bullying very slyly and with great denial if confronted. Even now yes I’d talk to his teacher briefly or write her a note just what you wrote here. Because your child conquered this bully does not mean the bully has stopped!

  91. Ps. I love your house and sent on to my daughter who is a new homeowner

  92. Definitely the wipes! Love hitting up light switches, door knobs, etc. with ease.

  93. I love Clorox Clean Up!!!!! I use it in my kitchen,bathroom and in the laundry. Thank you for this giveaway !

  95. What a sweet story!! We LOVE Clorox wipes in this house! 5 kids age 10 and under plus two indoor pets- we go through the wipes like crazy.

  96. I love those wipes too!

  97. I love Clorox Wipes!

  98. Good ol’ Clorox bleach, baby! For some reason, I like the Clorox Green Works for everyday cleaning in the bathroom but in my kitchen, it’s bleach and water. Kills any gross bugs in my sink or on my sponge!

  99. We like the bathroom and toilet bowl cleaners, but I’d like to try the wipes too.

  108. Your home is beautiful and I Love the TREX story! I use the same clorox wipes that you have pictured. I find they also help to get out stains on my carpet.

  109. We live the clorox wipes too! My kids actually get excited about cleaning… sometimes.

  110. The Chlorox wipes are the best! My girlfriends and I use them at the gym to disinfect all the equipment after we use it- and sometimes before when some of our male counterparts haven’t bothered to do so!

  111. They (who are they?) say the kitchen sink is one of the germiest places ever! Well, I use Clorox Clean-Up spray in my sink all the time. It always keeps my drain smelling fresh too!

  112. Sandy Docherty :

    Clorox Wipes are GREAT! I wipe door knobs, phone, keyboard, car steering wheel …….anything that doesn’t move! :-)

  113. I used to teach at a preschool and we always used Clorox wipes on every surface of the classroom, faucets and knobs. We also used Clorox bleach in the dishwasher and would run the plastic toys through a cycle to disinfect them too! This company has been around for a long time because we all know the power of bleach!

  114. Clorox wipes make for easy disinfecting

  115. I love the disinfecting wipes..so quick and easy!

  116. Besides using them at home, what I do to Clorox Wipes is to keep a few in a plastic baggie in my purse. That way I always have them for several things. If I have to use the dreaded public restroom while I’m out and about I pull out one of my little Clorox wipes and wipe the handle as I’m going in, wipe the latch on the stall door, and wipe the flush handle. At that point I send the wipe down the commode, go to the hand washing station, and wash my hands. Then I pull out yet another wipe so I can grab the scary handle on the door to get out of the restroom. I also use them for the handle of a shopping cart and anytime I’m going in and out of a store my Clorox Wipes are there to save me from the myriad of germs on the door handles that are just waiting to make me ill.

  117. we like the toilet and bathroom cleaner to keep our counters and bathrooms free of germs!

  118. Always have Clorox wipes in the house and car…and now in my son’s dorm room at college!

  119. I am all about the wipes. They are portable and can be kept in all different parts of the house as I have some in the bathrooms, Kitchen and garage.

  120. I love the wipes and bleach! Use them both daily!

  121. Love Clorox wipes but I have to say nothing is better than good old fashioned Clorox bleach–gets all our white laundry sparkling clean–and a lttile mixed with lots of water is an awesome cleaner!!

  122. We use the Clorox Disinfecting Wipes for EVERYTHING! I don’t know what i would do without them.
    especially with 3 little ones I am disinfecting our entire house daily.

  123. I use Clorox bleach in our laundry and the toilet cleaner…well…in our toilets. :) xo

  124. T-Rex! I love it!

    Those wipes are life savers! Love them!

  125. Love my Clorox Wipes! Use them daily all over the house. Also use to wipe down the cat liter box.

  126. I use Clorox clean up spray for my bathrooms and kitchen. Also have the wipes for those quick clean ups. Use Clorox-2 in the wash for my colored fabrics…
    Have used it for years, can’t imagine Clorox not being in my arsenal!!!
    Blessings,
    Cindy

  127. I love the Clorox wipes. I use them at home and at the office.

  128. Hi Karianne… I so enjoy your blog and always leave feeling inspired and charmed by your witty writing style.
    I will remember the power of a T Rex when the time comes for my son to face those challenges with others!

    I love the Chlorox products! Especially the dual action wipes with a touch-up side and a scrubbing side… With a pleasant citrus scent.
    I use them on everything.. Handles, faucets, In the car… An occasional swipe to my cell phone and remotes.
    Especially during this craze flu season… Chlorox wipes are our best forms of defense!

  138. I keep Clorox wipes in both our bathrooms and right on the kitchen sink. They are my “Go To” cleaning product for surfaces, like sink tops, faucets, toilet flusher handle, door knobs and the counter tops especially after meat and eggs. They are so easy to use, you don’t have to mix anything, or worry about dirty rags to clean, you just use and throw away! And I LOVE the Lavender Scented wipes, they leave everything smelling so nice!
