The transition from elementary to junior high went a little smoother with kids cards from Hallmark. Sending a good luck card made for a better week and let our daughter know we cared.
Junior high is rough. Rough! Lockers that won't open, larger class sizes, gym class, teachers that no longer no your name and the lunchroom.
It's been a tough couple of weeks and my daughter has come to find out that getting older can be both rewarding and scary at the same time. She misses having her best friends with her in the same class all day but loves the variety of classes she now gets to take. She hates the lunchroom but loves having different teachers. She misses her teacher getting to know her name personally but loves that she doesn't have to be stuck with a teacher she doesn't like all day everyday. She loves gym class but hates having to get dressed in front of other girls with changing bodies. Seriously how do some seventh grade girls look like they belong in a third grade photo with braces and glasses and others like they should be in high school? Puberty sucks!
To let her know we (aka Mom and Dad) care we decided to send a card to her after school one day with the help of Hallmark Kids poster cards.
We found our Hallmark Kids Poster Cards at Walmart on an end cap of the card aisle and loved the selection and variety they had for different ages. My youngest wanted Minnie Mouse, but we ended up picking up a Divergent card for my daughter. I loved the positive messages throughout the card. The card unfolded to a full sized poster with another positive message that could remind her that she is going to survive junior high by being the strong person she is!
Of course, no sweet gift would be complete without an alarm clock. Yes the Mom and Dad alarm clock days are over and left behind. Time to get up and get moving early now!

My daughter just started 1st grade this year--I'm not looking forward to those middle school years when it gets even more complicated!! I love the idea of getting her a poster card -- what a great daily reminder that she's cared for! #client
