This last year, my only daughter started preschool. We were both excited. New friends, new school clothes, new schedule- what could be better? As it turns out, when your kids start school, they aren’t the only ones that take on additional work. Signups to take home the class bird/mouse/whatever, making the monthly play dough and teacher gifts for every occasion quickly start to amass. Perhaps the most loathsome preschool activity is Share Time. Usually, we end up making a mad dash around the house trying to find an item that goes with the week’s highlight letter. And this morning took the cake, because the letter was U. U!!! So I decided enough is enough. I’m going to come up with a list of alphabetical share items in hopes I help some poor, exhausted mom who can barely remember to drink her entire cup of coffee, much less come up with a suitable share item for the world’s worst letter. I hope this helps a mom in need!
