Happy “Unofficial” Mother’s Day!

Today is the first day of school here in our area and even though all of my kids are grown and out of the house, it is still a holiday!  It was a tradition for me to call my sister on the first day of school every year and wish her a Happy Mother’s Day, because we had decided year’s ago that the first day back to school should be the “unofficial” Mother’s Day!  You know that I am just kidding…kind of!

To help get all the grand kids off on a good start I made them all  back-to-school boxes!  Even though some of them are not in school yet, I couldn’t leave anyone out!I included crayons, colored pencils, bottled glue, glue stick, pencils, scissors, markers, notebook and goldfish for a snack!  In the older boy boxes I wanted to be a really cool grandma, so I included a pack of Pokemon cards, so they could do a little trading with their friends! :)  ( I had to call one of the moms to find out where to even buy them, because I am so out of the loop!)  The boys of course loved them and so I really was a cool grandma…well sort of.

In the girl boxes they got the same things, but they got a lipstick pen, and a princess school pack, so I even scored with the girls!  It was a good day.

So to all of you moms out there if today is the first day of school, or if it is coming up soon, I hope that you will take a few minutes to celebrate this “unofficial” holiday!

Happy Mothers Day!
