For some reason though, that didn't happen this year. No email arrived, asking for money/flowers/cards/love notes for teachers. And unless I totally missed it, no whatsapp request came either. It seems it was each mom for herself this year.
I will admit that I did fall down the Pinterest hole and had a hard time pulling myself away from all the creative and time-intensive gifts that I would have loved to create for my kids' teachers. Those ideas were all things that I would have jumped on in my early mommying days - and I am sometimes sad that I no longer have the time/motivation/time to make these fun projects.
I did, however, find one idea that appealed to me, and as so often happens, the Pinterest link led me to nowhere except to a photo, with no instructions. Why people cannot properly pin webpages is beyond me, so let me just say that this was NOT my idea, but more power to whoever came up with this.
Anyway, so then I bought the oranges. Two big bags of them. Even the cashier in Target want to know why I needed so many oranges. So I told her, and now her kids are going to bring oranges to their teachers too!
I also bought the orange-strawberry drink mix in Target, in case you're wondering where you might pick some up as well. And the cellophane bags - those were left over from Purim, I'm sorry! But they do sell them on Amazon if that helps.
And also, "Chocolate you glad it's almost summer?" makes no sense at all.
