I remember my mom tucking a dime in my pocket before school each morning so I could by a milk for lunch.....something about feeling it in my pocket during the day made me think of my mom back at home waiting for me....a simple little gesture filled with love. Now I find myself in that same spot... tucking milk money in my little girl's Scooby Doo lunch box so she can buy her a milk for lunch....it makes me smile....being a mama is a fun job I'd have to say. Don't get me wrong....we have our roller coaster of emotions...my husband sits in wonder as the drama queen emerges and all of the sudden we go from kisses and laughter to the waterfall of tears for who knows why? I'm laughing now that she's snuggled in bed.....a perfect looking angel...no sign of the drama queen in site. The little stinker has us scratching our heads I tell you.....love is a wonderful thing isn't it? Her favorite word at the moment is "stylish"...no clue where she got this one from, but it makes me love her and all of her little quirks even more.
This week for Emma's Paperie, the theme is Back to School...so I have a fun tag booklet to share with you. I thought it would be fun to jot down fleeting memories about my little girl as she heads off to school and experiences so many new things for the very first time....a place to record where she's at in her learning processes and such. The fronts are completely embellished with Back to School prompts, while the backs are left blank waiting for moments to remember. This was such a fun mini project....a complete supply list can be found HERE if you'd like to make one for yourself.
I've got to kick in gear around here.....off to find me a nice, shiny, red Coca Cola to get me moving. It's my midnight friend...always ready to listen...always waiting ever so patiently for me....never lets me down....always in fashion...
