That’s why we suggest personalizing your very own “From the Mom of…” Notepad (at left) complete with all of your kids’ names plus your contact information, including your name, cell phone number and email address.

These cute notepads are sure to come in handy the next time you need to write a quick note for the babysitter, teacher, coach or even another parent you’re trying to schedule a play date with!

Think of it like your own personal mommy or daddy business card – it’s sure to save you a ton of time and stress whether you have one child or a dozen!

You’ll be happy to have everyone’s schedule all in one spot that you can refer to throughout the year (especially parents who have children in different schools). However, in order to prevent you from feeling overwhelmed, we suggest personalizing our “Simply Organized” Calendar Pad which will help you keep your entire family’s schedule organized on a week-to-week basis.

Your calendar will be much more manageable and much less intimidating so you’ll be more likely to stick to it (we also offer Personalized Calendar Pads that your kids can use to help keep their individual schedules organized, too)!

Head over to our Personalized Coffee Mug Department and have fun picking out a new back-to-school mug or travel tumbler design that you can personalize with your favorite photos, colors and message!
