School mornings can be hectic, especially when you’ve got to send a note to school. Life as Mom contributor Jessie Leigh shares how to streamline the note-writing process with a simple, fill-in-the-blank printable.
Between laying out clothes, packing lunches, checking backpacks, serving breakfast, and all the other myriad tasks to complete before school, it’s no wonder school mornings can feel jam-packed and stressful.
Do you know what always seemed to throw a wrinkle in my plan? Suddenly remembering that I needed to send in a note with my child. Now, this might seem like a super simple task, but, honestly, it would take me way too long to track down the proper writing supplies, craft a brief but polite note, and make sure it had all pertinent info.
A couple years ago, however, I decided to create a “fill-in-the-blank” note and make my life easier. While it might seem like a little thing, keeping a stack of these babies handy has saved me many minutes and much stress.
Today, I’m sharing it with all of you in hopes that it might prove to be a bit of a hassle-saver for you, too. Print out a dozen or so and pop ’em in a file or folder. Your writing hand will thank you!
