My First Teacher’s Weeks As A Mom

Handmade Chocolate Dipped Pretzels with Reese's Chips

This is JC’s first year at school, so I’m a little green at this “mom-of-a-school-kid” thing. Come to find out, he came home with a paper in his backpack on Friday that talked about this week being “Teacher’s Week”. The best part was that my husband and I were in Desert Springs on a Marriage Retreat and did not see the note until Monday morning.

The note was from the PTA with ideas for fun gifts each day this week. I must admit I was happy somebody did that thinking for me.  Here is what they suggested and then I will tell you what I did::

Monday:: Flowers  – I gave the woman teachers a flower pen or pencil made by my very creative friends Tami and Patty!

Tuesday:: Candy – My attempt at being a “good OC mom” I made chocolate dipped pretzels with Reece’s Chips

Wednesday:: fruit day – I gave all natural fruit roll-ups

Thursday:: School supplies – i bought glue sticks

Friday:: hand written letter – made a card and had JC color in it
