The countdown is on!!
(and completely off topic…this is my 500th post!)
short long days, Munchkin will be back in school. Peanut will have to wait another 10 days to start her regular schedule because of the gradual entry thing that our school does.
The “gradual entry” involves 3 visits to the school. The first one will be a 1/2 hour visit for the parents and child to meet the teacher and fill out some forms. The next 2 visits will be just Peanut, a few other children and the teacher for 1 hour.
Peanut is very excited about going to school and has her days all planned out. She wants to learn her letters and paint. Sounds good to me. Hopefully she’ll be even more excited to learn that she’ll be doing a lot more than that.
Her excitement started a few weeks ago with the first “back to school” commercial. “Mommy, what am I going to do? I don’t have a back pack”. Um…there are more than 2 months until school; I think we’ll be okay but every other day she reminds me that she doesn’t have a back pack.
I wish that a backpack was the only thing that we needed to buy. But for Peanut we will also need a lunch bag, 2 pairs of shoes — indoor and outdoor, a change of clothes to be left at school, and probably a box of facial tissue. It’s not anything extraordinary.
As they get older, they need more stuff. For Munchkin, the supplies list looks like this:
- Plastic School box
- Pencil crayons (Gr 2, 3)
- Pink erasers
- Jumbo glue sticks
- Washable markers
The only thing that is left over from last year is her plastic school box (the ones you put pencils and stuff in). All the rest will need to be replaced.
Once we get all the stuff, I’ll sit down with my Mabel’s Label and start labeling everything. And I mean everything…right down to each pencil and marker.
And no, I’m not crazy. Mabel’s has a label for everything.
- 40 Skinny-Minis are dishwasher and microwave safe
- 50 Tag Mates™ are washer and dryer safe
- 16 Shoe Labels and Teeny Tags™ are waterproof and UV resistant
- 2 Teeny Tags™
We use the Skinny-Minis on all the pencils and markers as they fit so perfectly! And with them being dishwasher and microwave safe, they’re great on reusable lunch containers and water bottles. Teeny Tags can be used anywhere — we like them on the girls lunch bags but would also be pefect for pencil cases (with a zipper) or on backpacks.
Cheers, Mabel!! Thanks for making my life easier!
