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. 🙂

Last weekend we were invited to attend a #SeeTheGood event hosted by @treetopinc and my sweet mama friend Carly from @lipglossandcrayons at the Los Angeles Zoo! You all know my girls are obsessed with animals so they couldn’t wait to go. .

Have you been to the ‪LA Zoo‬ around this time of year? Check out our stories to see all the BOO at the LA Zoo FUN and the cutest halloween DIY. And I'm loving that the @treetopinc pouches are clear so you can physically see all the good in them. Plus, they're giving back to the community by donating a case of their applesauce pouches to the LA Food Bank every time the  #SeeTheGood hashtag is used. Go go go! ☺️🏃‍♀️#hosted #Treetop #LAZoo .

  • I don’t know about you but our mornings are surely not picture perfect. And now that school has started it’s certainly become pretty chaotic. Trying to wake the kids up, get them dressed, fed, hair and teeth brushed and out the door for school all while whining and complaining in between. I always feel that no matter how well-prepared I am the night before something eventually throws off our routine. Anyone else relate? .
.
So for that, I’m always prepared and carry with me @belvita. Did you know that belVita Breakfast Biscuits have NO high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners or artificial flavors? They also provide 4 hours of nutritious steady energy. And best of all they’re tasty, wholesome and convenient for us busy folks. #belVitaPartner #MyWholesomeBreakfast

  • #ad Every time I see the clock ⏰ approaching ‪6:30 pm‬, aka time for our kids bedtime routine 🛏, I get an extra burst of energy. Mainly because it reminds me that our girls will soon be counting sheep or that much closer to it. 😴🎉😁

And with so many bedtime routine blog posts and tips out there, I've come to the realization that they’re not all perfect for every family out there. Certainly not ours. But one things for sure, we can all appreciate a stress-free routine, right? 🙋‍♀️ .

Check out our latest blog post.  A STRESS-FREE TODDLER BEDTIME ROUTINE which includes tips that actually work. Plus, all the reasons why we incorporated the new & improved JOHNSON’S® baby products into our bedtime routine. #TryJohnsonsBaby #ChooseGentle #Stress-Free #CollectiveBias #babygirl
  • #AD | Getting an annual eye exam is important for kids and adults even if you don’t wear contacts or glasses. You see, as first time parents we had no idea that kids should get their very first eye exam at six-months of age. And unfortunately, we learned this the hard way. Check out our latest blog post to see what happened to our oldest daughter Mia when she was only 2 years old and we neglected to get her her first eye exam let alone add her to our vision plan. @vspvisioncare
  • I can’t seem to keep up with all the International Day of (fill in the blank here) holidays. 🤪 My bad. And Is that still a thing to say? .

Happy belated “International Day of the Girl” to all the kind, brave and super smart girls out there. Especially these two love bugs of mine. May you have the courage to stand up when things are not right and may you never take no for an answer when it comes to your dreams 🌟 and goals. #MisAmores #girlpwr 👧🏻👧🏼 👊 #internationaldayofthegirl
