We’ve clearly entered a new phase of parenting. Our schedules revolve around school, soccer and birthday parties for children we’ve never met. Seriously, we’ve already received 3 invitations and we’re only 3 weeks into the year.
The hardest part for me is remembering everything to bring to school each morning. And I don’t mean the obvious things – like lunch. This week, each day had a designated color that Jason was supposed to wear. Oh, and then there’s library day (don’t forget to send the books back) and show-and-tell day (make sure it starts with an “M”) and P.E. day (who would have guessed my son doesn’t own appropriate footwear?).
So, it probably won’t surprise you to hear that I have very few favorites this week – unless you count all of the online shopping I did for ‘P.E. shoes’ – but a few things caught my eye:
- This is an over-the-top dream given my rant above, but I love the idea of cooking every night for a month.
- Science-geek crayons (via Design Mom)
- Love the Flying House series by this photographer
- Very cool idea for making your own gift wrap
