Actually, it's here.
This is the last weekend of #1's summer break.
Monday is D-day (and D in this case stands for Dammit-gotta-get-up-even-earlier-to-sneak-in-time-alone-with-my-coffee-and-my-blog).
So, to commemorate, or lament, the end of summer, here is a summery shot I took of #2 at Mimi's house this week.
And, I know it was only a coupla short months ago that I was all OMG-totally-freakin'-out-people-what-will-I-do-when-the-dudes-are-eagerly-trying-to-kill-each-other-for-the-summer.
And, you're probably wondering why I'm all sentimental and whiny about them heading back to the grind now.
So, I'll tell ya'. I'm huge into overreacting, dramatizing, and basically putting a lot on situations that involve me and my kids (but mostly me).
It's sorta my thing.
I like to work myself into a frenzy over small stuff, make it seem all daunting and insurmountable. Then, when I overcome it, I feel even more triumphant and those around me are more appreciative of my awesomeness.
Yes. It really does work.
So, here goes my next hurdle...
Getting ready for school!
Kidding, I'm totally done already.
Even got my dudes' stuff labeled.
The nice people over at Lovable Labels, sent us a lovely package of labels to try out.
They stick on shoes, clothing, binders, backpacks, lunch bags. Pretty much every piece of junk your kid hauls to school (and normally doesn't ever haul home) will probably make it back to you if you affix one of these personalized, custom made, bad boys to it. Check them out here: Lovable Labels
#2 doesn't start until...actually, can't really even recall when he starts (go me!), but just so he doesn't feel left out when the big day finally arrives, the happy people at Tattoos for Tots sent him some tattoos (#1 won't go near them with a 10 foot pole because they are "for babies"). He has affixed them to various parts of his body, and he even shared them with #3.
We call this look fish belly...
They have tons of different collections to chose from: animals, pirates, automobiles, fruits, insects, plus tons of other girly, cutsie stuff.
Best part. They have the word on the back, so they're kinda educational too!
So, if your little curmudgeons are bath boycotters like mine, they could potentially wear their educational tat for like two weeks straight.
Seriously, who can't learn how to spell sun in two weeks?!
And, a giveaway.
It's been a while, right.
Something from UPrinting perhaps?
How about 250 custom greeting cards (you know how I love stationary)?
There are tons of ways to use these. I like to make invitations to star studded events and fan cards for the dudes to hand out to adoring fans.
Basically, I use them as birthday invitations and Valentine's Day/Christmas cards.
They tend to be a hit with friends, family, and adoring fans alike:)!
