Back to School.

It’s that time of year again … the Fourth of July is in our rear view, while Halloween is in our commercials and on our store shelves. A few back-to-school tips from an experienced scholar:

To our student …
Breakfast before the bus will soon take the place of breakfast at noon. Ask Mom to add a few essentials to her back-to-school grocery list: your favorite cereal with extra sugar added, Pop-Tarts, donuts with frosting AND filling, etc. If Mom’s list is full, try Dad’s.

To Mom …
Your laundry room will soon see fewer beach towels and swimsuits and more shirts confirming the lunch menu. Acquaint yourself well with your students’ practice and game jerseys as you’ll have a washing, drying, folding date with one or the other every evening. Add one essential to your back-to-school shopping list: stain remover.

To Dad …
Commence Operation Homework. To avoid the struggle bus, find a quiet place, free from distractions, reference the textbook, ask Google, and lastly, summon Mom. Add one essential to the back-to-school shopping list: an eraser.

Here’s to a successful 2014-2015 school year!

That Guy.

We all know That Guy. When That Guy is sent to the grocery store for a few necessities, he adds a few of his own sugary necessities to the list.

That Guy chaperones his kids’ middle school dance … once. After shaking his groove thing with his home dogs, he lost his privileges.

That Guy scours the freezer with his partner-in-crime, hours after bedtime, in search of the ultimate bedtime snack, ice cream.

Rather than watching the game in “his” chair, That Guy watches cartoons on the couch, after his little shadow claims the chair.

That Guy still has those outdated, awkward family pictures in his office.

That Guy is your coach, your Boy Scout leader, your guide, your teacher, your wrestling opponent, and your biggest fan.

Happy Father’s Day!

An Island Oasis

Synonyms for Mom: Chauffer, Coach, Crosswalk Patrol, Daycare Provider, Hair Stylist, Head Cheerleader, Housekeeper, Interviewer, Janitor, Launderer, Lifeguard, Listener, Nurse, Personal Chef, Personal Shopper, Referee, Secret Keeper, Singer, Story Teller, Taste Tester, Teacher, and Therapist.

Though we should be thanking our mothers daily, the official day to honor these special people is right around the corner! How will you say thank you? A hug? A phone call? A homemade card? An island oasis?!

Wait! What? An island oasis?! And not just any island oasis. A Showplace island oasis. We don’t mean the white, sandy beaches, tropical sun, and fruity drinks kind. We mean the hardworking, organized storage, and additional countertop space kind. After all, we can’t have Mom jet setting just anywhere; she has quite the list of responsibilities.

So consider an island oasis for your mom this Mother’s Day. She’d be forever grateful, as would you considering a trip to the tropics should be a family event. Right?!
