In Which My Sister in Law is the Best Mother EVER

Every mother who reads my blog will know what I'm talking about.

The 100th Day of School. And the associated project.

For those who are not mothers, or whose schools do not partake of this lovely (snort) new ritual, let me explain. The kids count each day of school. On the 100th day, there is a party. A parade. And each kid brings in their HUNDREDTH DAY PROJECT.

The Hundredth Day Project is this: each kid brings in 100 of something. Generally, the kid reminds the mom at approximately 3 minutes before carpool at which moment 100 chocolate chips, or cheerios, or raisins, are stuffed into a baggie as fast as possible. Every once in a while, we know in advance. Then we might string said cheerios, or glue the fruit loops on a poster board.

For my niece Esti, the Project Princess, as we call her, this just would. not. do.

She had a vision.

100 shapes in glitter.

And my amazing sister in law, Tamar, helped her do just that.

I hereby bring you: 100 shapes in glitter in honor of the 100th day of school by Esti.


I must say, Tamar is a saint.

Last year we made a 100 day shirt - thank goodness for iron-on ladybugs (50) and glitter paint pens (50 hearts.) I should sell that. I bet I'd bring in a small fortune on ebay :D

I dread the 100th day of school projects! One of my kids once wanted to collect 100 signatures and we ended up having to go down to the nursing home on the end of my block for the last 50 the night before it was due. I don't think the residents really knew what they were signing, but they enjoyed visiting with the kids!

I love the 100 signatures! Could I steal that idea for my next son's party?
