And or: cheap
And or: grateful
When an email popped into my inbox last week from Bright Star Kids I was quick to reply that “Yes! I would like to get some labels done” seeing as my baby starts Big School in a few months time. Sob.
I have never been an organised Mum. I have friends who always have packed food for their kids. Always have Tupperware filled with cut fruit and sandwiches with crusts cut off and water. I just have never been that person. I am always driving to a servo to get some overpriced bottle of water because I forgot the drink bottles. Again. I am the Mum writing my kid’s names on their drink bottles and lunch boxes with black texta, only to do it again the next day as it has washed off in the dishwasher. Again. As much as I am organised in some areas – this is not one of them. So you can imagine my delight that next year I will be able to whack these fabulous labels and iron them onto her clothes (although that will involve ironing which I never do. Not ever).
We got the School Labels value kit which is valued at $39.95 and comes with what seems like a gazillion labels. It’s easy to fill in the details, choose a font and icon picture and in a day or so it arrived. Easy! They have Name Labels and School labels and looking online a whole range of decals, bag tags and even stuff for the home.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to be smug and organised, and throw out all the dodgy permanent markers I have around the house.
