Teacher Appreciation 2011: The Sweetest . . .


If I were a good blogger, I’d have the cookies made that go in the glassine bags. They’d be wrapped with ribbon and have the labels I made attached perfectly to the front. 

Instead, I’ve embraced mediocrity, battled my inner perfectionist, and settled for bringing you a picture of a half finished project.  But hopefully you get the idea.

I’m baking gigantic chocolate chip cookies today. I was supposed to bake them yesterday, but I got milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet and the recipe I’m using is definitely meant for semi-sweets. Plus, I spent yesterday making Mexican wedding cookies for my son’s Cinco de Mayo party at school so he can get extra credit. I should have made him bake the cookies. Instead I made him mow the lawn. That way he could sneeze a lot and I could lick the cookie batter bowl. Being the mom is rad.

I’ve made a little printable for you if you’d like to send in some sweets to the teachers tomorrow.  It’s not too late!  You still have one more day to make teachers feel appreciated.  I created this note for printing on Avery’s 5263 label.  If you don’t happen to have an obnoxious stash of labels on hand like I do, you can just print this on paper or cardstock and tape it to your goodies. There are ten labels per page.

You can find the printable here.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! And thank you teachers for helping to make my kids smart. You are appreciated!


Edited to add:  Look! It’s 2:30 and I’ve got an update.

The Queen of Catchy phrases...that's what you are. I would really like to eat a giant chocolate chip cookie right now. I'm sure those will be a hit.

I love it and I love you! I hope your children are getting ready to celebrate you just as fiercely for Mothers Day as you have been celebrating teachers.

If I were a good PTA president instead of a mediocre and totally overwhelmed one, I'd have taken your printable (which is adorable) and put it on cookies and given it to all the teachers at our school. Instead I went to the local store, bought a candy bar and stuck a sticker to it that said, "thank you" and threw it in all of their boxes. Not my finest hour this week, but I'm getting it done (mostly).
My kids own teachers aren't getting diddly this week. Oh well. I'll go give them all a hug. That should count for something right?

Thank you for sharing. Some good teachers in Arizona will enjoy these today.
