Back-To-School

  Ever gone to Staples for printer paper and found yourself an hour later in the pen aisle trying out all the gel pen colors? Just me? I've been obsessed with school supplies ever since I first laid eyes on a Trapper Keeper (did you know they still make them?!) Even though 99% of the work I do is on my computer...
Kate Spade inspiration for back to school
Back to School is here! It’s crazy how fast the summers go, now that my kids are in Real Deal School. I feel like I hold on to them so tightly. Like it’s my time with them. Two short months of having them all to myself...and then it’s over and I have to start sharing my babies with the world...
I've heard it a thousand times, as I'm sure you have too: avoid labeling your kid--labels stick. This goes for anything from labeling them as shy, clumsy, chubby, and, in my case, picky. But since my elder Boy Wonder will undoubtedly be eating chicken tikka masala on a regular basis by the time he can read this (I'm an optimist), and since this is just between you and me, he's a pretty damn picky eater. As such, I'm always looking for new, fun recipes he can help with and will enjoy eating while broadening the spectrum of his excruciatingly limited palate.
