LittleMan had his first day of school on Monday. We’re only a few days into it but so far so good. I half expected a tantrum or at least some defiance but it looks like he’s excited and mostly compliant, at least for now.
I had thought it would be fun if we dressed as zombies for the first day of school but LittleMan had other ideas.
A dear friend of mine is pregnant with her third child, and I couldn’t be happier for her. That said, I remember how difficult it was to entertain LittleMan quietly when SunnyGirl was still a newborn. So, in lieu of being geographically close enough to take the kids off her hands a few hours here and there, I’ve made these lap desks for her children. I believe similar lap desks would also make a good gift to give a child going on a summer road trip or even just a nice back to school present.
When giving gifts to a family with siblings, I like to be as “even stevens” as possible, however with her daughter in early elementary school and her son a preschooler, there were some slight differences between the lap desks.
