Yay! The kids are going back to school this week! You know what that means, labeling the crap out of anything and everything that I bought for them to take with them. My boys are notorious for losing their things. They just set stuff down wherever they go and expect that someone will find their stuff and magically bring it to them or put where it belongs. Which at home, I must admit, I am guilty of picking up after them more than I should which may be contributing to this behavoir. But seriously, I lose my cool after about the tenth time so in efforts to save my sanity and my voice I just pick up whatever it is myself.
However, at school, they are expected to pick up after themselves like big boys. Finally now that Oscar is in the second grade he knows this about school. He has lost a few things over the last couple years that never got returned because of his carelessness. Benji will be starting kindergarten this year and he is way worse at losing stuff at home so I am a little wary as to how its gonna go down this year.
So if your stressing out about this like I am you should totally check out one of the Friends You Love sponsors, Mabel's Labels! They have some super cute labels for everything that you could think of. They definitely have back to school covered too. I love their Bag Tags - totally gonna order some, and their Back to School combo packs can't be beat!
Check it out! Mabel's Labels caters to mommy's needs too! There are labels for household items and they even offer cute Mama Cards. Take a look!
I think that Mama Cards are a fantastic idea! I can't tell you how many times I have been at my son's school and got talking with another mom and wanted a way to give her my contact info. Even at the park it can be awkward meeting other parents and I think that these cards are a cool way to show that you are interested in getting to know them better. Plus it puts the ball in their court. If they like me they can email me or if they don't they can just toss it. The beauty of these cards is that you can put anything that you like on it. If you work from home they can be your business card or whatever you need them to be.
In celebration of International Women's Friendship month Mabel's Labels has given me a set of Mama Cards of my very own! I am really excited about this because I most likely will be moving very soon to a new area and they will be great to hand out to new moms that I meet.
This is what mine look like!
You can buy some Mama Cards of your own at Mabel's Labels for $29.00. Each order includes 100 cards that are 5-3/4" x 4-3/8" in size.
