How I Beat Those "Back-to-School Blues" - Heidi's Picks!

It's that time of year that my kids begin to whimper about not wanting to go back to school. And every year, I assure them that although we'd ALL love to stay on permanent summer vacation and keep that Coppertone tan, they will eventually be glad to be back around their buddies full time, learning interesting (and some not so interesting) topics and growing to their full potential.

A couple of weeks ago I found these wonderful lunch boxes, luggage tags and water bottles that can be personalized. I immediately ordered the darling set for each of my children. I chose the soccer ball design for my son, and the oh-so-cute polka dot pattern for my daughter. And now that these goodies have come in, I have two kids who are asking me why they have to wait to use their new school sets!

Fresh packets of pencils, clothes with the tags still on them, and stinkin' cute lunch boxes, water bottles and luggage tags . . . It's the back-to-school ritual!

Except this time, my kids are counting down the days until school begins - excited to show off their mom's newest fashion find. Here's a hint from a mom who made a mistake: you may want to share one item at a time with your kids so their excitement may carry you right to the front doorstep of school!
