“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
– Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Hi! I’m Nicole. I’m a mom. I’m a wife. I’m a teacher. I’m a list-maker. I’m a planner. We have a busy life that I love. Never a dull moment! My husband and I made the decision years ago for me to stay at home with our kids. For me, jumping into that role meant adding my name to volunteer lists at schools. One of my favorite jobs became that of Room Parent. The former teacher in me loved the party planning and interaction with the kids. The list maker in me took over as I created a plan for each party we had. Those parties went over pretty well, I guess. I would have other room parents ask me to send them my party plan so they could do it in their child’s classroom. At first, although flattered, I thought they were kidding, but when it began happening more frequently, I realized that parents want to do the best they can for their kids. Sometimes, though, they just don’t have the time or resources to come up with everything they need to create a great experience. That’s when I decided to share some of my ideas. Having a party? Find a theme you like and access the plan. It will include ideas for everything from food to crafts and games and where you can get all the stuff to make it happen. Need a gift idea? I have included them too. Let’s make it a party to remember together. I’ll plan it…you do it!
