If we had a nickel for every time we told our kids to put away their shoes or pick up their toys, well, we’d be writing this from our yacht in the south of France while Jeeves served us lunch.
Sorry to disappoint you but none of us are writing this from our yacht in the south of France. Yet.
But, what if our actual furniture, appliances, and garbage bins could talk? Or at least, leave notes for our kids, to give us a little break from the constant reminding.
Seriously, we love you, small child, but how hard is it to close the cereal box?!
So, using the new P-touch D210 label maker from Brother, our newest sponsor (yay we love them!) we decided to take matters into our own hands, and let someone — or rather, something — else do the nagging (and teaching) about household chores for a change.
With setup that’s so easy our tween did it, this snazzy label maker lets you create custom labels using a choice of 14 fonts, 97 frames, and more than 600 symbols. And because P-touch TZe laminated tape is water-resistant, you can label pretty much anything at all, from the floor to the freezer.
You know, for when BOOKS GO RIGHT HERE, DO YOU HEAR ME ARGHHHHH! just isn’t enough.
To get you thinking of your own ideas for a P-touch project, we’ve put together 9 fun ways to use it around the house. Who knows; maybe if the kids don’t listen to us, they’ll listen to the toilet seat.
Totally worth a try, right?
An attempt to end the endless frustration of finding clean clothes crammed into the dirty laundry basket. Every. Single. Week.
A fantasy: What if the kids actually used their clothes dresser for, you know, clothes?
It actually takes more time to lift this milk jug to your face than it does to grab a cup and pour.
We’ve timed it. And yet.
Solidarity, fellow moms of boys. And partners of men.
When they wonder why we have no money for college, we’ll remind them of our electric bills.
Right on the floor in the front entranceway. Boom!
What is so important anyway that it can’t wait literally 2 seconds?
Now they’ll never have an excuse to ask, “Hey mom, where’s my coat?” Genius!
No matter how cute you are, that was not 2 minutes, little lady.
Let this serve as a reminder that Mom is always watching. Always.
Huge thanks to our sponsor Brother. Buy the P-touch PT-D210 Label Maker from Amazon now and make parenting a whole lot easier. And, in this case, way more fun!
It’s ridiculously easy to set up and use. Plus, with all the time you’ll save not bugging everyone in your family, you can use your P-touch label maker to help you get more organized around your house. As you probably already know, Brother label makers are particularly good at that too.
