|"I'll try not to wine. Cheers to the weekend if I do."|
My husband didn’t think so. He came home from work, saw what I did and said, “Erin. You’re giving Whitney’s pre-k teacher a bottle of wine?” Me, “Shyeah. Those cutesy-wutesy gifts are overused. Let’s give him something different.” Him, “Please don’t bring the wine to Meet the Teacher night. Give it to him on the first day or something.” I was really bummed, but I gave in to his idea.
After Meet the Teacher Night we walked in through the door of our home both laughing hysterically. None of the other parents brought gifts for the teacher. Not a single one. I can’t imagine what it would have looked like if we marched in to the tiny little pre-k classroom with our bottle of wine. So sophisticated, and yet undeniably awkward.
I still like the idea of giving a teacher appreciation gift. Therefore, I designed a new gift tag printable label with a more subdued, but definitely more appropriate, theme.

Today is Whitney’s very first day of school. Nerves are running higher than expected for both she and I. But I’ll be back later in the week to talk about it. In the mean time, I’m off to enjoy a glass of ungifted wine…
