So the kids are going back to school soon and I am kinda glad. This place is a nuthouse. Seriously. It is not possible. NOT POSSIBLE. To have a clean and ordered home when you have 3 kids. I'm also kinda getting sick of hearing "Mum, where are we going today?". I'm also kinda sick of hearing them cry when I say "Nowhere". Their reciprocation of "NO WAY THAT'S TOO BORING" is driving me to a mild state of bonkers.
2012 will bring lots of new changes for us. I'm looking forward to a new routine, but also a little sad. I think I'll miss the mayhem. My Boy is off to Kindy and My Big Girl is starting Full Time Pre Primary.
Bright Star Kids asked me to review their fab range of labels. Bright Star Kids is a one stop shop for your kids name labels.
I'm always looking for funky kids websites that help me save time. Bright Star Kids is one of those websites.
When I was a kid, mum used to chip away at pencils with a Stanley knife and write our names on with pen. If she was lucky to not LOSE A FINGER doing this, it would take all afternoon. Sometimes she liquid papered stuff and then wrote our name over the top with a pen. Yuck. Oh things have changed since then. Now you can get specky name labels with pictures and colours and...
These kids have no idea how lucky they are.
Bright Star kids sent me a stack of name labels to try out.
The name labels come in compact sheets and stick on brilliantly. No more scrawling your kids name in permanent marker. They also come in a great range of colours, designs and sizes. Labels to stick on toys, lunch boxes, shoes, bags..... everything.
Let's not forget the Iron On Labels, which stick really well. It only takes 10 seconds to iron it on and presto, you're done.
So there is no need to use the archaic methods of the 1980's to label your kids possessions.
We labelled The Boys new bag, drink bottle, lunch box and used an Iron On Label on his hat.
My Boy is now ready for Kindy. I'm just not sure if kindy is ready for My Boy. Time will tell.
