Genius mom

Thing 1 and I have busy schedules this fall. I'm spending more time in meetings than in the classroom. And, depending on the day of the week and my meeting schedule, T1 might take the bus home after school, or might have art class, or might go to the afterschool recreation program at school. It's a schedule that's hard for me to keep track of, let alone a sometimes-forgetful 3rd grader. I was afraid someday she'd accidentally take the bus home while I was at work, and then, unless a neighbor happened to be home, she'd be stranded.



So I had an idea--and a brand new Xryon machine that laminates. And I made these:



Now all I have to do is attach the appropriate tag to her backpack each morning (or, better yet, the night before), and she's all set.

Hmm. Maybe I should make some as reminders for Hubby, too....

That is cool. Can you make some for my T1 and T2? They will read, "Kitchen, Computer room, LR, Make Bed". ha ha. I guess we don't have much of a need for signs but I do love lamination. I'm the queen of schedules and lists.
