So my kids don’t start back until after Labor Day and I’m beginning to ponder how I can make the first day or the first week back a good one for them. Em has already hinted at various foods she wants in her lunchbox on the first day (a peach, a “Mimi’s-house” cookie, etc…) and then I was reading an online magazine article and it talked about getting special soaps for bath time (thinking about that one) or they had suggested other things that are elaborate and crazy AND not in this Mom’s budget.
But it did get me to thinking….what can I do to make back to school special. As adults we like to be slightly pampered when the schedule changes for us, why wouldn’t we also do it for our kids?
I had already planned to make a special “Heather Goes to School” Cake to have for dessert on that first night. And I think I will get some fun bath soap or scented spray for each of my girls as a fun little “relaxing” gift. But I’m asking you to share your ideas for how you make the first day and that first week back to school a special one.
Now don’t panic, it isn’t hard to put a comment in. Just click on “leave a comment” found at the bottom of this post and put in your info and your comment. If it is your first time to leave a comment then I will get an email asking me to “moderate” it and once I approve it, then it will appear. You don’t have to use your real name if you don’t want us to know it is really you! 😉
And don’t think…”well, none of my kids are in school so I can’t comment.” No way….you have ideas—share them. What would you do to make that first week back a special time if you had a child in school.
Share with us! Thanks 🙂
