It seems like yesterday, that my husband and I put our Son into his first school-like environment for the first time. He had just turned 2 years of age. Personally, I thought it was way too young for him to be heading out the door, and on the other hand my husband thought it was normal. Maybe that is the difference of me being Australian and him being a born and bred New Yorker. In Australia, the accepted age for children to go to school is 5 or 6. In New York City, it seems the sooner the better.
Fast forward 2 years and Miles Storm is gearing up to go to Pre-K 5 mornings a week. Yes, children everywhere in the United States will be back in school if not already, very soon. For me, this is a first time experience and yes I am starting to freak out a little. I am going to miss him so much and being a stay-at-home-mum it is going to take some getting used too. Thankfully though, he is only in class for half days.
Making It Easier
I have his most important items labeled with Stuck on You labels; backpack, water bottle, snack bags (from Snackaby), sunscreen lotion and his little glass jars. There is nothing worse that losing one of my Son’s items, it creates a maddening situation ending with me either tearing the house apart, or having to go and buy a replacement. Either way it is not fun.
However, I am thinking ahead this time, by being prepared and labeling all the things he needs for school ready for Day 1. Fingers crossed, this reduces the chance of something getting lost. And, as an added bonus, I am pretty sure there are not many other children in the world called Miles Storm, so if something is lost it will easily make it’s way back to us.
Started by a Mother in Melbourne Australia, Stuck on You, is a fun website stocked with the coolest labels and gifts for children. Easily available the world over, Stuck on You was started over 10 years ago, and has grown at speed mainly by word of mouth; very honestly. Their products are high quality, protruding happy times, and this is why Stuck on You products are loved by Mums, Dads and Children alike.
Stuck on You has so many different kinds of personalized labels, I mean if you can think of any kind of label, they surely have it; sock labels, book labels, shaped labels, clothing labels, shoe dot labels, address labels, pencil labels, and write-on labels. These labels are enhanced by being dishwasher & microwave safe, scratch resistant, applied easily and durable. Some of their labels are also made with eco ink — love that!
Not just that, the designs are adorably original, like the retro robot name labels we have for Miles Storm. If robots are not your thing; what about owls, birds, fairies, tigers, flowers, merry-go-round, flowers, submarines, super heroes, ice-creams, dinosaurs, astronauts or tractors? Priced at only $14.95 for a set of 50 labels, it is definitely worth the investment compared to losing something of more value.
Stuck on You offers a lot more than just labels, like the personalized wooden jigsaw puzzle shown above. This puzzle is a huge hit with my Son, being a colorful educational tool for him (in disguise) for him to learn how to spell his name and get used to the way it looks at a young age.
There really is something for everybody!
