This Task Light Saved My Sanity

I get super overwhelmed with my kids at night. I find that after a long day of parenting in the summer that I don’t have much to give after I wash the supper dishes. I get short with them. I get a bit rude. I can lose it.

I don’t get it.

Just go to bed.

I especially don’t get it when we are camping. I mean, they just had 3000 hours outside swimming, kayaking, riding bikes, walking the dog, digging in the dirt, roasting hot dogs, fishing, playing cards, making smores and you still want to act like monkeys on meth at bedtime?!

I don’t get it at all.

So this particular night, I was pretty ticked when our tent trailer interior light decided not to work. I told my daughter to turn on her flashlight to which she announced that she has to do everything (DON’T LOSE IT) and that the batteries were dead (REALLY DON’T LOSE IT). So thankfully I had packed the ONEPWR Cordless Task Light to take some blogger photos. I mean, I planned on using the task light to write a blog post, but I didn’t know I was going to be in a situation where I NEEDED to save my sanity while putting the kids to bed.

I turned on the Cordless Task Light and all the freaking out my kids were doing 2 seconds before magically stopped, therefore saving my sanity.

The night was saved.  This photo kills me. I took it for my husband who was at the next campsite over chilling out and enjoying a few beverages while I attempted to put our little turkeys down for the night.

These photos are not edited and there is not a flash on my iPhone. Pretty bright, eh!

  1. No camping here (unless it’s in a fully decked out RV which we don’t have) but we definitely lose power ALL the time.

  2. No, we were supposed to go camping for Canada Day but my daughter had a foot injury so we couldn’t go – wouldn’t have been much fun for her, being on crutches! We have a camping night planned in September though, weather permitting!

  3. We camped twice this summer. 3 times if you count last night when I suddenly decided to stop the crazy bedtime fight by declaring a backyard camp out…
    We’re hoping to camp with the kids again in mid-September too. My husband and I are going camping without the kids next week!

  4. No, we didn’t go camping this summer but we did do more activities than usual. Hubby is of the age of glamping now as sleeping on the ground no longer appeals to him.

  5. We definitely went camping. Road trip to Nova Scotia and we camped in a rustic cabin and an otentik tent at the provincial park. It was awesome. This light would have helped at the cabin, it was so dark there!

  6. Sure did! In Alberta and in Montana in a tent. It gets pitch black in the brush so this task light would be awesome to keep on hand!

  7. no 🙁 we used to go all the time, but I guess we have gotten lazy and comfortable – maybe someday we will get in to camping again! I would like that !
