New Item - Thank You Gift For Teachers

I remember reading The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein to my oldest son (now fourteen) at night before bed when he was younger.  I had read it so many times, I could just tell him the story instead of actually flipping through the pages and reading it. 

The book is fantastic, and it teaches us appreciate those that do everything for us and who give all they have yet expect nothing in return. Teachers do just that. Each day they are making a difference in this world, helping to mold our future generations into amazing individuals. Yet, they expect little if nothing in return.

This key chain gift, perfect for any teacher or teaching staff, is inspired by the very last sentence in the book - Once the tree has given everything she has, much like a teacher does for her students..she is happy.

Show the teacher in your life how important they are...and how much they are truly appreciated for what they teach us daily, with this unique thank you gift. Shop Now.

If you have another idea in mind, or are looking for something a little different, custom orders are always welcome. :)

Mischief Moment - What happened to the Pizza?

With three kids, work, school and everything in between...I am one busy mom.  I don't always have the time to stop by the grocery store to pick up the 'proper fixings' for a well rounded meal.

Frozen pizza and I are BFF's when it comes to having dinner ready super quick for my three 'always starving' boys. Usually when I purchase them I'll get whatever looks edible and is on sale. 

Before I place them in the oven, I'll toss on extra goodies, like salami, pepperoni, olives...etc. My middle child Michael wanted to help me as usual. This little kitchen helper already possesses some serious chef-like cooking skills...yet he's only five.

As I'm getting everything ready to create my frozen pizza masterpiece, I step away for a minute to grab the last item...it was one minute.When I returned, this had happened. 

I suppose the fact that little bite marks taken from a few pieces of salami isn't that funny. However watching Michael pretend like he wasn't the one that did it, sure was! I proceeded to add toppings as if I didn't even notice while at the same time trying not to burst out in laughter.

Meanwhile, Michael is utilizing his crafty tactics of trying to keep me distracted with silly stories and guessing games....

I find the most humor in fact that he took a single bite out of several pieces before putting them back exactly where I had originally placed them. He was obviously hoping I wouldn't notice...and I never did. ;)
