Rookie mama mistake… I sent my son into the first day of Kindergarten without properly labeling every single item on his being.
Sure, I took a Sharpie to his backpack and notebooks, but I neglected to touch his thermos, his water bottle, his lunchbox, or the very clothes on his back... Alas, he came home on that first day, super excited to tell me everything, but super bummed to realize he was missing his most a beloved red sweatshirt. Not only that, he informed me at pickup that "THREE other kids have the EXACT save R2-D2 water bottle! We could, like, trade, and you wouldn’t even know the difference."
Oh, silly, silly, smilly me. What was I thinking?! I’m a true newbie school mom, and totally unfamiliar with the big, wide world primary school… Turns out, this is the labeling big leagues! And so it's time to swap out the permanent marker and step up my personalization game.
Week two of K has started and, thus far, we’ve held on to all of our belongings—because I’ve become a labeling machine. And, no, this mama is not spending hours, minutes or even seconds sewing on patches. I’m avoiding sticky situations with press-and-stick Name Bubbles!
