Thanks so much to Stuck On You for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts shared are my own.
My kids have been back in school for a few weeks now. Big Bro B started school in mid-August (he's in 1st grade), and Baby S already has three weeks of Day School under her tiny belt. I never realized how much I would miss the summer. A lot of moms can't wait for their kids to go back to school, but I do miss mine when they're not home with me.A new school year means crazier than ever schedules, and many more demands made on dear old mom. I do my best to keep up with it all, using technology and other helpful tools, but I also stick to some tried and true old-school methods.
Staying well organized is just one of those things that I have to do in order to survive and thrive. With busy schedules, it's really easy for things to slip through the cracks and for me to forget a meeting here, a signed homework paper, sending in 'something red' for show and tell, or reminding hubby to grab his lunch and school faculty ID badge before walking out the door. You'd think that with one boy and one girl, I'd be able to keep track of my children's belongings- but guess what? Those items leave the house... they go everywhere from school and church to grandma's house, and they don't always make it back home. Labeling belongings has been very helpful, as has having items for the kiddos personalized.
Stuck On You knows a thing or two about what it takes to keep families organized. That's why they're committed to offering families wonderful personalized name labels and products that'll help mom and dad keep it all straight. Stuck On You has a variety of products for kids and the family, including personalized name labels, bags & accessories, lunch boxes, stationery, clothing, baby gifts, and more!
Stuck on You helped us get off on the right foot as we sent Baby S to Day School for the first time with their adorable Junior Book Bag.
I wasn't sure about what type of toddler backpack Baby S would need for school. I knew that I'd need something that her teachers would be able to put a folder in each day, but something that we could also use for daily outings, etc. The Junior Book Bags from Stuck on You are the perfect size for little ones who want a little taste of independence! The lightweight backpack has adjustable straps, and is easy for little ones to wear and carry themselves.
I fell in love with the adorable Pineapple and Bunting design on this cute backpack. Can you guess why? It reminded me of the Mommy's Block Party blog banner, in a way. The backpack's print is sort of summery, but S absolutely loves it and it's definitely going to be cheery in the dead of winter.
The Junior Backpack has all sorts of helpful features, like a side mesh pocket with drawstring to hold items like sippy cups.
It's pretty amazing how much room this little backpack actually has... lots of room inside, a side pocket, and an insulated zippered compartment on the bottom! I've been very pleased with the amount of Baby S' things that we've been able to get into the backpack.
Plenty of room inside for a change of clothes, extra diapers and wipes, and snacks, of course!
Built-in lunch box? How cool and practical!
I love the little insulated pouch on the bottom of the backpack. Once S goes to Day School 4-5 days a week when she's older, she can stay for lunch on Fridays, and this will be the easiest way to pack her lunch without having to send another bag to school. For now, it's a great place to pack snacks when we go on little trips, and it's also a great place for me to put any wet clothing that might need storing until I can get them to the washing machine.
This little backpack is the perfect size for my pint-sized learner!
S loves her new backpack so much that she never wants to take it off- even at home!

Personalized Name Labels help me keep Big Bro B's things organized, too!
One of the requests from B's teacher was that we label all items that come to school, such as jackets, backpacks, pencil cases, lunchboxes, etc. I label everything of B's from his shoes to his gloves. You never know when a jacket is going to get thrown down on the playground and picked up by another child. Having B's name clearly labeled on his belongings help to ensure that they get back to him, and are brought back home at the end of the school day.
Stuck On You has lots of great choices for name labels in many fun designs. I went with a sheet of orange name labels for B with a soccer ball icon, since he loves the color orange and loves soccer, too!
Personalizing the labels was so quick and easy to do online- I simply chose the color label, the font, font color and icon, and then typed B's name into the text box. Easy as 1-2-3, and I was done and ready to place the order!
These bold labels stand out on B's school items- so he knows which items are his, and the other kiddos and teachers do, too!
Choose from single sheets, multi-packs, round or shaped labels, and more! They're great to have for kids and even adults!
