I’m having a stressful day today and my 2 year old is NOT helping matters. So, thanks to the response of my cousin to my Facebook status reminding me that summer camp is just around the corner, I am now dreaming and looking forward to my 2 year old’s up-coming summer camp! Woohoo!
Uhoh! And I’m also reminded that the stack of papers, forms and doctor releases are still stacked up on top of the radiator waiting for me to fill out and return to the camp ... gotta get on that!
Also among those stacks of summer camp papers is a list of things my son is to bring with him EACH DAY to camp:
Lunch (no peanuts or nut products!)
Full change of clothes (including socks)
So, I’m thinking this one through and realize I should probably put my son’s name on his belongings. Now, I could just whip out the Sharpie and write his name on everything. But why do that when I have this awesome opportunity to have some fun?! Check these out: http://www.mabel.ca/mabel.php?n=clothing+labels Cute huh? Or what if I went with this: http://www.lovablelabels.ca/Label.aspx
Oh the possibilities. Thank goodness my husband doesn’t read my blog, he already thinks I spend money on senseless stuff and this would DEFINITELY fall into senseless. Especially since that Sharpie is already purchased and sitting with all the other writing utensils.
Any other ideas out there? How about summer camp warnings and tips...anything I should watch out for or do to make this whole first-timer's (for both me and my son) trip to summer camp as organized and painless as possible? Oh, and it's not the typical "camp" where he's sent off somewhere to sleep overnight for a month. No, it's a 3-day a week 9am-1pm type "camp".
