I am not exactly the most organized person on the planet. I mean let's face it, ADHD and organization are not exactly two things one might consider synonymous. Getting back to school and keeping up with the kids and their stuff is tough for me, and for them. Three ADHD people trying to get ready for school and out the door is laughable at best most days.
My boys get it honest at least. I can't very well expect them to be any better about keeping up with their belongings when most days I have misplaced my keys, my glasses, my purse, my mind, etc.. One of my boys is notoriously bad about leaving his jackets, shoes, shirts, anything not physically non-removable. Thank goodness he can't take his brain out and play with it. Sheesh!
I was thrilled when I was offered the opportunity to review Lovable Labels and the Back to School pack. I quickly labeled everything that belongs to one Kamden Romano! His back pack, his lunch box, his shoes (which are always missing at some neighbors home), his jacket, his shirts. Everything has a label now! It's come in handy too, I have be able to retrieve, not one, not two, but three articles of clothing from the Lost & Found at school. Not. Even. Kidding! Yep, in the five weeks the kids have been back to school, I have visited three times to retrieve items that have been "lost". Thanks to Lovable Labels they were "found"!
You can get your very own Back to School Pack too! They are awesome. I have washed items several times and been pleased to find labels still attached! They have stayed in the shoes my child seems to leave everywhere except his feet or closet. And? There is no more arguing in his class about who owns his lunchbox since several children have the same lunch box. Kamden's now sports a nice shiny tag with his name on it!
Here's what The Back To School Pack includes:
15 Regular sticker labels
80 Slimline sticker labels
48 Press n' Stick Clothing Dots
12 Shoe labels
2 Mini-Metal Tags
12 Square labels
All of this with the name YOU choose! SCORE!
Lovable Labels has generously supplied us with a "Back To School Pack" for one lucky winner!! Thanks Lovable Labels!!!!

There was the first inkling of Fall in the air here in the Sunshine State this weekend! It was wonderful. Chilly at night and in the morning. Sunshine in the afternoon with a light breeze and no humidity. You could smell Fall in the air. I picked up Kooper from a birthday party he attended Saturday night and we rode home with the windows down. The smell of bonfires and grilling filled the car as we drove and I drank it in.
I thought this week I would open up Share a Spoon to you all to share your favorite tastes of Fall. It can be anything you like, a Fall squash recipe, PUMPKIN anything. Sweet potatoes, potato hash, baked goods, whatever screams Fall to you.
We spent the evening making sugar cookies. Pumpkins, owls and brooms, cats, witches and Fall leaves. So much fun. The kids had a blast cutting out the cookies and painting them orange with icing. Those are the things I love about this season. It's so hot in the Summer we can't bake without sweltering.
Thursday bring your FALL FAVORITES out and Share with us!!

I married Prince Charming who just so happens to be a Star Wars geek, and we are living happily ever after. I tend to over share, lose my cool and make rash generalizations. I'm teaching my kids to love everyone and appreciate all things. Did I mention I love FOOD?
