Teacher Appreciation Day 1 = FAIL

OK, so it is day 1 of teacher appreciation week. If you recall, in my last blog, our PTO sent home a list of suggested gifts for each day of the week. I came up with a few ideas of my own and used a few that were given to me. I went to Target this past weekend to stock up on everything that I needed. Totally excited about the projects I could do with Chad and the amount of money I saved.

So here is what we did for day 1.


Yep, recipe cards with these little stainless measuring spoons attached to them. I even used a fantastic tortellini appetizer that we love to eat for them. We printed everything out, glued it all on the index cards and attached the spoons.

As I was bagging them up, I asked Chad how many teachers he saw on a daily basis. I am going to do a special gift outside of the "suggested" ideas for the other teachers (Gym, Art, Music, Library). He counts out... 1...2...3...4...5. Wait WHAT? 5? Seriously, who?? He said "Mrs. G, Ms. B, Ms. T, Mr. S and Ms. K"

Dammit... I only made 4.. What on earth was I thinking??? So now I look like the crappy parent who only likes four teachers.... Shoot Shoot Shoot.. I told him to give the gifts to the first four teachers of the day and then tomorrow when he gets to school, play it off like he just forgot to take it out for her. Man, I feel so bad.. LoL! Luckily, I know Target will have what I need to make it all better for tomorrow.

For all my teacher "Bloggy Buddies", Thank you for making a difference in my boys (and other children) life. I know they probably don't appreciate it now, but they will!!


  1. Sounds like something I would do! :) That's a great idea, they look good!
