Here is a simple project, that I saw on Pinterest one day, and had one of those slap-your-hand-on-your-forehead/why-didn’t-I-think-of-that moments.
With the way things can sometimes get hectic around here, and the communication required about the child between parents, we use a whiteboard to leave each other notes and reminders. Instead of hanging a big, kind of ugly white board in my kitchen, I copied the idea to frame some pretty paper and write directly on the glass with dry-erase markers. I found the frame at an antique shop for $5.00, and got a piece of scrap-book paper at the craft store for about .50 cents. The board hangs among some art in our kitchen, fitting right in as decor.
Here I leave Jeramy notes about what he should feed Simon for dinner while I am at work, or reminders of what time to give medicine. Sometimes I will jot down grocery items that need to be picked up, or things that need attention around the house. (And as you can see, sometimes I draw caricatures of our son.)
The board looks cute, saves on paper, and helps two busy parents share information that might be forgotten in a rush out the door.
