Are you a Room Parent? You need Qlubb.com

This year I'm signed up for both my kids class as Room Parent. Don't ask what I was thinking but being involved in my kids school is very important to us as a family.

I'm a WAHM during the week so I have time to but did I want to send out or call every parent when there was something happening in the school...no! When I saw qlubb.com (thanks twittermoms!) I was very intrigued and corresponded w/a representative from Qlubb. In a week I was sent the most awesome lunch box with accessories, everything you would need for a NO Garbage lunch (if the kids ate all the food that it). I knew they were the right fit for our school because we are trying to go GREEN in our school plus we use the 4R's on a regular basis.

Now on to the site...qlubb.com! Wow what a cool tool for Room Parents and any group who needs to be organized. Its quite simple to use too.

What Qlubb.com offers:

*Private, secure Website– a central place where members can easily share photos, messages, links, blurbs and more.
*Dedicated easy-to-remember web address(yourqlubb.qlubb.com) and email address (yourqlubb@qlubb.com)
*Intuitive UI- so easy-to–use that anyone in the group, including members with limited technical skills can immediately participate.
*Universal access- Anyone member can easily edit pages which removes the bottleneck of burdening one person from having to do all of the work.
*Security- only members with the right password can participate so your messages, photos, content are all safe and secure.
*Automatic reminders– task and event reminders are sent to members via email (if desired).
*Customized reminders– when reminders are sent can be customized, such as the day or week before an event.
*Subset reminders- Reminders can also be sent to a subset of members such as people who have RSVP’d or who have task assignments.

So far the parents that have signed up really think this is a great site that we will be able to utilize to keep in touch with other parents.

School Rocks!

Lil Man and Lil Mama are loving school. Lil Mama does school work every day and she enjoys it. Lil Man is discovering READING as something fun not just to cross it off as done on the homework. Grandma got him a cool book from the Wimpy Kid series and he is reading it everyday.

Lil Man says his teacher smiles a lot. Lil Mama's teacher is a substitute until Ms. Muniz comes back from maternity and that is going very well. The school spirit is awesome and I'm very proud to have my kids in Civicorp Elementary.

Lil Mama doesn't want to take naps at school and she let me know! "Mama, I haven't taken naps for years" really years? She is a trip! So I will pick her up at 2:30 and we will do things around the school until Lil Mam get out at 3:15.

Spatula's Where Do You Go?

I was cooking tonight and I was wondering where do all the spatulas go? I've had many over the years and now I'm down to 1. I know this is silly but where did they go? Seems like all the other utensils are still hanging around and holding strong. LOL....hey when you have a lot of time on your hands you think of the most bizarre things. Stayed tune for more just random posts.

Why can't I think about laying out on the beaching sipping a cool drink but no, I have to dwell on where the heck went my spatulas.

Lil Man and GIRLS

Oh my and he is only 7! We were at the park the other day and he comes running over to me and says "Mom, every time I fall down those girls coming running over to see if I'm ok, I think I want to fall down more often." The look on my face I know was WTF....no your 7 no girls please. This is just the beginning and I'm not looking forward to what I'm going to have to deal with, lol! Of course as a mom I wanted to tell the girls to leave my son alone but I couldn't do that, he would be sooo embarrassed. Or maybe I should have ;)!

Back to School

Okay between the woohoo's and jumping up and down I do miss my kids when they are in school. Them being in school gives me more time to do things around the house. I have a long list of projects that need to be done around the house. Sounds exciting huh, lol!

Lil Man is loving his teacher. He says she smiles a lot. That's a good thing. We will be going on an overnight with the whole class in a couple weeks. Lil Man was very concerned if I wanted to go because he knows I'm not a camper but to spend time with my lil guy I'll get over it.

Lil Mama is having a blast in school. She is excited to go there every day. When she got her homework yesterday she wanted to get home and start it. When we got home she went right to the table and started to work. Awww my lil scholar.
