At some point you have to ask yourself.....

....when did I lose control? Have I completely lost my mind??

For me, that moment was tonight, the day before the last day of preschool, as I left the house at 9 p.m. in search of 9 presents for teachers gifts. And then again, at 10:30 p.m., as I cranked out hand made corresponding Starbucks gift card holders.

Stuck 'em to these super cute cookies I actually hauled back from Toronto (more on that trip later).


Did I mention I have to get up at 5:30 a.m. for boot camp, followed by work and 2 kids soccer games (not to mention a certain game 7 in the Stanley Cup)? Or that I have not yet unpacked my suitcase from Sunday from my trip? Or that due to the lack of groceries in my house I haven't eaten a fruit or vegetable in 2 days, unless you count those found on pizza or the ketchup with my fries?

Anyways, time to pack it in for tonight. But I think they turned out pretty cute.


Now just have to get 2 bags made in time for a birthday party this weekend.....

A+. That is your grade in a little something I like to call "CRAZY." Cute card holders, though.

Omg. I so feel you! I'm busy cracking out pot holders for teachers & I'm running out of time. Ahhh!

Yes, been there done that and not sure why I do it!

Shay said...

Yep-stone cold crazy . I suspected it from the start but now you've confirmed it.

Although I kinda wish I was one of your kids teachers....

PS. Fruits and Vegetables are highly over rated.

Oh my gosh, those are adorable!!! And yes, I have definitely been right there, too, and wondered how it was that no one had locked me up for my own good yet! ;)

Hmm, yep, signs point to crazy! The gifts are super cute!

You are every teacher's dream parent! Such thoughtful gifts :)

Kati said...

Such great gifts! They will love them, even if you feel crazy.

mybricole said...

wait...ketchup and pizza sauce don't count as veggie? I'm confused ;)

Hooray for the super cute teacher gifts!

Kelly Irene said...

lol! I have been there far too often! The gift card holders and cookies are super cute, and I'm sure will be very appreciated. I hope the bags come together quickly for you!

Love these!

Alisa said...

Yep that sounds crazy all right! :-) These are cute gifts. How is it that you have 9 teachers to give to? Do you count TA's etc?

Natalie said...

Ha, I definitely feel that way once in a while! Almost always related to a next-day deadline where something has to be finished :) Those are really adorable gifts-- it's awesome you found time for the extra special touches you put on them!

LOL, sounds a lot like my life! Why do we do this to ourselves? : ) There are just never enough hours in the day. Well, they're very cute gifts - there's nothing like a little handmade something to show your appreciation to special teachers.
