First Day of School – Free Printable

Back-to-school-Box-Tops-For-Education-General Mills-WalmartSummer is coming to an end which means the first day of school is just around the corner. Our oldest, Mia, will be attending an elementary school walking distance from our home. And although I’m excited to walk her to school every single morning, I’m not excited about her starting big girl school. Did I mention she will be a kindergartener in just a couple of weeks?!! How did this happen? Quick, someone hand me a box of tissues. My baby is not so much a baby anymore. And I’m not sure how I will handle the five days a week of morning chaos getting the 7-month-old and four-year-old out the door by 7:20am.

But more importantly, I’m ultra concerned about Mia’s food allergies and not being able to control what she ingests at school. I’m going to be that crazy mamá counting down the minutes with my cell phone in hand.  I’m sure in time she will learn to read food labels on her own and make all the right food choices, right? Definitely looking forward to that day.

Back-to-school-Box-Tops-For-Education-General Mills-WalmartToday, we’re making a promise to give back to Mia’s elementary school. Starting with the Box Tops for Education program.

Have any of you heard of this neat program? Simply look for the Box Tops labels when you shop General Mills products. Your school will receive $.10 for every box top you clip and send back. In addition to the $0.10 per Box Tops, General Mills products are now eligible for a 5-for-1 redemption exclusively at Wal-Mart! That’s $0.50 per box that goes towards your kids school.Back-to-school-Box-Tops-For-Education-General Mills-Walmart

Can’t wait to shop, clip, and earn money so that Mia’s school will be well-funded throughout the school year!

Find out which General Mills products have the 5-for-1 redemption here. And be sure to print out our first day of school chalkboard signs below. Perfect for mamás and dads to use as a first day of school prop. 😉

      Can you believe summer is over already and school is in session already? Where did the time go? We used our printable on Monday. Such a bitter-sweet day for our kindergartner. 🙂

According to the new One Poll study, three in four dads prefer an experience instead of a physical gift on Father’s Day. Rounding in at number 4 “ball game with the family” and at number 8 “Watching whatever I want on T.V..” 😆😂 Check out the full list on our stories. .

And Happy Father’s Day weekend to all especially my Papi and mi amorcito. ❤️😘❤️😘 #fathersday #diadelpadre
  • AD There's a new cute Disney Junior show out called T.O.T.S. (Tiny Ones Transport Service). It's an adorable series for kids age 2-7 about best friends Pip and Freddy. They deliver baby animals to their forever homes. Each episode highlights creative thinking, teamwork, and problem solving, which is what we are now teaching our 3 year old via this adorable T.O.T.S. chore chart. For example, we're teaching her how to help us set the table as a team. And how everything gets done quicker when we all pitch in. .
.
The new series airs weekdays on Disney Channel at 9 AM. #DisneyTOTS

After months of passing by this massive covered up land @Disneyland we finally reported to our #milleniumfalcon mission in Batuu!!! You guys, my 3 yr old met the height requirement, barely. 😭 Her first big kid ride and it was on the coolest ride EVER. Also, in case you’re wondering about all the hype, YES, believe it all! #GalaxyEdge took my breath away. Catch our stories for all the fun and stay tuned for more twinning ideas. 😊 #starwarsgalaxyedge #bb8 #twinning .
Después de meses de pasar por la enorme tierra cubierta en Disneyland, finalmente nos reportamos a nuestra misión en Batuu !!! Les cuento que mi hija de 3 años cumplió con el requisito de altura, pero muy apenas. 😭 Su primer juego para niños grandes y fue el mejor de todos.
  • A little staycation at the happiest place on Earth because #schoolsout and we’re finally getting summer like weather. Correction, scorching hot weather. We’re now in the 90s & 100s. 🔥😆😳 So now its time to complain about how hot 🥵 it is vs why it’s so cold and abnormally raining in Southern CA. 😂 😅

Where do you go with the kids when the weather gets hot in your area? My girls love swimming so I surprised them and brought them to the Disneyland Hotel because we love this resort and the cute monorail slides. Speaking of swimming, how adorable are these Princess Jasmin 3 piece suits? 🤩🤩 Love that they come with cover up pants. Swipe to see. P.S. don’t forget to #justwearthesuit mamas 😊 #disneypartner  @shopdisney #disneyfamilia
  • Wanna know a secret? I’m so uncomfortable in front of the camera.😆 I know, you’d think I’d be the opposite but the truth is I feel way awkward and would rather take pictures of my little loves all day.  Anyone else? 🙋‍♀️
