LOVE IT! Thursdays: Back to School Edition

Can you believe it's that time of year already? The end of summer vacation is almost over. Actually, it is already over for some. I know a lot of moms can't wait for school to open. I'm dreading it however because my commute has been just dreamy during these summer months and I know that come next Monday, we'll be back to traffic-as-usual. What I can't believe is that my baby will be starting nursery school in a few weeks! Where oh where did the time go? As a rookie school parent, I am curious to hear what suggestions for Back to School items the experienced moms have. A certain kind of backpack? Nifty book covers? An indestructible lunch box? Or maybe even a tried-and-true lunch item that the pickiest of kids would eat? I'm all ears!

Here's mine: The Bumpy Name Label. Have you heard of it already? It's a plastic, reusable, personalized band that you can slide onto your child's bottle, sippy cup, thermos, etc. so that it doesn't get mixed up with the other kids' stuff (ewww) and you don't have to worry about the sticky label coming off after being washed or using a toxic permanent marker to write your kid's name. Here's a pic of it:
I received mine a few weeks ago (I bought the 3-pack for $7.95) but have yet to actually try it out. From what I can tell, they are lightweight but sturdy and pleasantly cute. They are also dishwasher and microwave-safe.

Oh and what I thought was really cool was that you can put whatever text you like on the label, like what food allergies your child has, etc. Fortunately I don't have that issue but I can imagine that it would be a source of concern for many parents.

So that's my Back to School item recommendation. Keeping in mind that I haven't really used it yet, I give the Bumpy Name Label:

4 gavels: "Liked it. I would definitely recommend it."

Your turn! Remember to sign the Mr. Linky once you've written your post.
And...Happy Back to School!

Well that's pretty cool. I definitely would have used that when my kids were still using bottles/sippy cups. Now my younger 2 (that are still in daycare) are provided all food at school, so I don't have to send anything (JOY!)

I have nothing but bitching and moaning for the back to school SAGA that living in Texas brings. I will be posting about it probably tonight and you'll see what I mean. But it makes me seriously cranky.
