Claudia here. Take five on five five. That's what I'm going to try to do. Posting a five minute blog on the fifth day of the fifth month seems about as good a way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo as any (especially in light of the fact that I won't be traveling to Mexico any time soon).
4:32 a.m. On your mark, get set, go.
I'm a working mom now and yesterday was the perfect storm. Walk into day care and find out through casual conversation that this week is Teacher Appreciation Week. I had NO IDEA and so, of course, show up empty handed on the first day. Not good.
No time to dwell. I have a full day of work ahead of me.
Driving home from work and remember that tomorrow (today) I get to craft the post for our blog. What to do? What to do? Last week Heather suggested I do something for Cinco de Mayo. Sounded great then. But today I'm a working mom and I don't have time to do fun research about homemade maracas, fun Mexican dinner recipes, and interesting facts to share with kids, family, and friends.
Tacos; red, white, and green place mats, and a pinata for dessert. That's all I got.
4:34 a.m. Three minutes left.
5:30 p.m. yesterday and I still have nothing for my son's pre-school teachers. Stopped at party store for a sombrero so Richard could take a festive picture of me to post on the blog.
Blog, teacher gifts, Family Fun for Cinco de Mayo. My cup runneth over.
Zip through store and pick up sombrero. See festive chili pepper necklaces hanging in my periphery. IDEA!
A Red Hot Idea
You're a Red Hot Teacher
and (Happy Cinco de Mayo)!
Who doesn't love a new accessory now and again?
Teacher Appreciation. Done. Today's post. Done. Family Celebration? Hmmmm... Help me out. Five festive things we can do/eat at dinner...
P.S. Winning cookie cutter... Cristine's Big Mouth Bass. If not in stock then Stacie's stork. Still don't have? Cheryl's soaring heart.
Signing off until tomorrow... 4:37 and 16 seconds. Done.
