Today was the 1st day for my daughter in her new room at school. Our “trade off” for the “goodbye window” (mentioned in another post) and no tears, was to decorate a mailbox and have her open a special note from me every morning. So yesterday I dusted off the mail box from Target (from Valentine’s Day) and decorated it with some cheap paper in my stash. Not that she doesn’t deserve Basic Grey, Heidi Swap or Chatterbox– but this mailbox is on its way to destruction. She’s 4 and its in a classroom full of grabby little hands that want to see an touch everything. Not to mention I hoard paper by the pound. She ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT ! Mostly because it was pink. I now have a stash of 3×3 note cards ready to go for her every morning (all made from scraps)!! She hugs and sleeps with “piggy” so this was appropriate for the 1st day. Yup, she still cried… 🙁

    Very cute! I'm so jealous! I wish I had got my hands on a few of those mailboxes.

    That mailbox is just adorable!! And what a great idea–something for her to look forward to! Hope the tears stop soon.
