I am the CEO (Chief Everything Officer) of my family. You can often find me wearing a chauffeur hat and a referee jersey. My best suggestion for organization is a Mom’s grid calendar. Even though everything is on my phone, everyone knows to check the side of the fridge to see what’s going on. As an avid reader of LIParentSource.com, I was thrilled to be selected as a member of the inaugural Parent Panel.
This year I’m in the 7th grade for the 2nd time and it’s my 3rd time in 3rd grade. Did you follow that? I spend a decent amount of time volunteering at my boys’ schools. I recently won a T-shirt that said “Wink if you do your kids homework.” This was my winning submission
My son read “Charlie & the Chocolate Factory” for his last book report. I got gold scrapbook paper to make the Golden Ticket. I found a real Wonka bar to glue to the cover.

After all, I, we worked so hard on this one.
