And while I’m focused on making her first day of school special, I need to come up with some ideas to make the transition easier on my daughter’s younger brother who is about to lose his favorite commuting buddy. I enlisted the help of some friends including Progressive Mom and Commuter Mom and added a few first day of Kindergarten ideas of my own.
Make a batch of Kissing Hand Cookies (hand shaped cookie cutters, Hershey’s kiss in the center) and of course read The Kissing Hand while you eat them! Take a picture of your child holding a sign with the grade level and year (in their first day of school outfit, of course!). Do a special hairdo (Commuter Mom’s daughter likes to sleep in braids so she can have wavy hair the next day). As a first day of school tradition, serenade your child in the morning with a funny song you and your spouse made up about going back to school, complete with a goofy dance. Jazz up the school supply list…Teachers typically request school supplies – like crayons—you can get ordinary crayons or get the twist crayons with multiple colors (same thing for erasers or pencil sharpeners). Buy some fun (and inexpensive) stickers or temporary tattoos that the child can wear on the first day of school. Laminate a photograph with your child and their sibling if they are close or perhaps a picture of the family or family pet.  Put it in their lunchbox. Do you have any more ideas? Share your first day of kindergarten ideas and school traditions in the comments section. If it is any help, I have friends who found that the Kindergarten transition for the second child was a breeze because the second child was so used to being part of older sibling’s Kindergarten drop off. Thanks for the great idea about putting a part of a story in my child’s lunch each day.

The Founding Fathers, the framers of the Constitution, wanted to form a government that did not allow one person to have too much authority or control. With this in mind the framers wrote the Constitution to provide for a separation of powers, or three separate branches of government. It happens to land on a Friday, so taking her out for a celebratory dinner seems like a must – but what else could I do?
Side panels overlap making the boards easy to handle in addition to protecting the display during transport. Each has its own responsibilities and at the same time they work together to make the country run smoothly and to assure that the rights of citizens are not ignored or disallowed. You could even start a story that you made up and each day your child gets to read a new paragraph each day for the first week. Life Enthusiast.10 Life Lessons to Excel in Your 30s March 20, 2014May 4, 201619 minute readby Mark Manson A couple weeks ago I turned 30.
Leading up to my birthday I wrote a post on what I learned in my 20s.But I did something else.
I sent an email out to my subscribers (subscribe here) and asked readers age 37 and older what advice they would give their 30-year-old selves. The idea was that I would crowdsource the life experience from my older readership and create another article based on their collective wisdom.


The same 5-6 pieces of advice came up over and over and over again in different forms across literally 100s of emails.
It seems that there really are a few core pieces of advice that are particularly relevant to this decade of your life.Below are 10 of the most common themes appearing throughout all of the 600 emails.
Start Saving for Retirement Now, Not Later“I spent my 20s recklessly, but your 30s should be when you make a big financial push.
Understanding boring things like insurance, 401ks & mortgages is important since its all on your shoulders now. I would have been more diligent about a retirement fund, because now mine looks pretty small.” Gee whiz! And then there were the readers who were just completely screwed by their inability to save in their 30s.
Her career took a turn for the worst and now she’s stuck at 57, still living paycheck to paycheck. They later got divorced and she soon ran into health problems, draining all of the money she received in the divorce settlement.
She, too, now lives paycheck to paycheck, slowly waiting for the day social security kicks in.
One woman emailed me saying that she had worked low-wage jobs with two kids in her 30s and still managed to sock away some money in a retirement fund each year. Because she started early and invested wisely, she is now in her 50s and financially stable for the first time in her life.
