First and foremost today, I want to give a shout out to all you mommies out there. You just gotta know that you are more than special to all of your little babes 🙂 My sweet mom is one in a million. She’s strong, smart, giving, passionate, and loving. She’s the whole package I tell ya. One of these days my luck will change and the hubs and I will be blessed with a little sweetie of our own. I can only hope that I can be even half the mother mine is to me. And, I am going to call it right now, just to let the record show . . . this woman is going to absolutely KILL the roll of grandma 🙂

Speaking of sweet mommies, I had some bloggers ask me to explain the Mother’s Day Drop-In event that I hosted on Friday. So, here’s my attempt to do just that. With the week being as crazy as it was, I opted to simplify every thing this year. My goal was to offer up an outlet for moms to spend some time with their babes in the classroom setting. We didn’t have a performance and we didn’t host a big party . . . it was simply a “come when you can” event. I also have a few students with really big “mommy issues” this year. It absolutely crushes one of my babes when the mom subject even comes up. This also played into these low-key plans.
How did this roll, you ask? Well, I sent a note home the week before outlining Friday’s schedule (it was a crazy one with all the rodeo events). It outlined the day and let moms know what we were offering up (I included a copy of it below). I had a rough estimate of how many moms were coming and I used that to set up a Mommy Refreshment Station. I wish I had a photo of it . . . the day just got away from me and I spaced snappin’ one. It had flowers, cookies, lemonade, mini waters, and a fun little sign. Students served their moms . . . it was cute.
I am going to switch gears on you a bit now . . . it’s time for End of the Year talk. On that note, I have a little freebie for you today. I made this ditty last year and it is hiding in my TPT Shop. Once Open House hits and the crazy themed artwork, writes, and other projects are sent home (I get sick of looking at this stuff rather quickly and I make it go away that very next week), my walls always seem to look so lonely. SO, I came up with Memory Makers. This fun little craft looks great up on the wall and the kids seem to really enjoy it.

Alright, I am out of here. Going to plan for next week, call my mommy, and get my bum to the grocery store . . . I refuse to have PB& J for dinner again! If you have any additional questions about the Mommy Drop-In, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks for visiting and Merry Sunday to you 🙂
