My son finished his first week of first grade yesterday and all is well. We were worried for him because he’s a sensitive soul and because it’s a new school; but the week went off without a hitch! *Giant sigh of relief* He and a few classmates even helped the principal with the morning announcements on day one!
And there were no tears! Well, not from him, anyway. His poor little sister was heartbroken that she couldn’t join her buddy. 🙁

Back-to-School preparation is in full-swing! I attended the Momtrends back-to-school event and had a fantastic time. You can check out my post about the event at Raising Three Savvy Ladies. One of my favorite back-to-school products from the event is Mabel’s Labels, “Labels for the stuff kids lose!”
In my experience, Mabel’s Labels are the best for identifying kids’ supplies, personal items and clothes. You will need to label items whether your children are in school or day care, and you’ll need a lot of them. I’ve tried masking tape, Sharpie marker, stickers, and other labeling products, but Mabel’s Labels is heads above the rest. I will use them for my son who is in the 1st grade and for my daughter in nursery school.
The labels come in multiple sizes, they are resilient to everyday wear-and-tear, and the back-to-school package is plentiful. You’ll need them for pencils and scissors, lunch boxes, clothes, accessories, and more.
Now you also can find Mabel’s Labels Write Away Labels (self-laminating, writable sticky labels) at Walmart and Amazon.com. These are so versatile. They’re great to have around the house for those random, must-label moments.
Mabel’s Labels sent me the Back-to-School Combo for my son and daughter and I already started labeling their school supplies. I’ve used them in the past, and I was so pleased with how well they endured the school year and beyond.
Go to Mabel’s Labels to see the different products available for students of all ages in a wide range of stylish designs. I’m guessing you’ll also want to buy some for yourself, like I do. You’ll think of endless uses for their new line of household labels, too!
What will you be labeling this back-to-school season?
I received the following products for the purpose of review and giveaway. All opinions are my own.
Have you received the dreaded “lice letter” before? It’s the one notifying you of a lice outbreak in your child’s school. Immediately your skin crawls and your head starts to itch. What do you do next?!
If your family has the misfortune of a lice infestation, Vamousse makes an easy-to-apply mousse that works in 15 minutes to kill 100% percent of lice and their eggs. Instead of synthetic pesticides, Vamousse uses a non-toxic, pesticide free product with scientific support for its effectiveness in killing lice and eggs. Sounds good to me!
Now, what if your family doesn’t have lice, but you think it’s only a matter of time if your kids are exposed at school? Or perhaps you’re sending your child to camp or to a sleepover and you know the chances of getting lice is greater than normal. You and your child may never get it but you want to do something to prevent it!
Vamousse makes a lice prevention shampoo for this scenario. It’s free of chemicals so you don’t have to worry about harming your children when they have been exposed to lice but might not be infected.
I received a bottle of the Treatment Mousse and a travel-size Prevention Shampoo at the Momtrends Back-To-School-Event. (See my post about the event at Raising Three Savvy Ladies!) They say that the best time to purchase Lice treatment is BEFORE they arrive, so I feel peace of mind having Vamousse in the house just in case. I don’t know what it’s like to use on my head, but it smells pretty good – like eucalyptus.
Vamousse can be purchased over-the-counter in stores, pharmacies, and online, including Walmart and Amazon.com.
