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. 🙂

Today I’m working on a new project that’s way out of my comfort zone. Truth be told, I’m beyond scared and my anxiety level is way up there. But If I want something I’ve never had, then I’ve got to do something I’ve never done, right? Ahhh! Wish me luck 🤪🙈 #comfortzonechallenge #dreambigger #wednesdaymotivation
  • This right here is the reason why my heart explodes daily 🤩 and why I feel overwhelmed and so much mom guilt all lumped together. #realtalk 🤪

Love getting questions from you mamas. One of my favs is “what motivated me to start blogging?” The short answer. After having my first born and finding out about her severe egg allergy. I felt, lost, confused and stressed out. Not knowing anyone else in the same boat, I wanted to reach out to other moms going through what I was going through and to create a community. And boy has it evolved! I love sharing with you more of our life, what seems to work for us, the struggles, and all the brands we love. But in addition, I’m going to do a 180 and go back to my roots. Stay tuned for more allergy friendly quick recipes and this time, w/ the girls helping. 👩🏼‍🍳😄 .
