The Rockin' Parents Guide to Back to School

So back to school is always a little exciting, a little stressful, and little hectic... and sadly I've only been doing it for 3 years. Does it get any easier? Well, this year I really wanted back to school to be fun for MJ and with our twisted little family taste princess stickers and a new dress wasn't going to cut it.

Here are some really fun ways to add a little twist and little smile for back to school.

Fun, Spooky and Edible

Ok, so this bento box doesn't look like something my kid would be too interested in eating for lunch, but she would definitely love the skulls and bones cut outs made from cheese.

Creepy Crawly Cookies

Every kid loves their cookies but these fossil cookies from Martha Stewart look like a blast to eat (although a little creepy).

Fruit With Attitude

I love this idea. Tattooed fruit. Really?! I've literally tattooed an orange and still never thought of putting temporary tattoo on the skin of a fruit. Amazing! This will actually work on most fruit too. (Flickr)

Rockin' New Lunch Boxes

What better way for your kid to say "don't touch my lunch money" then with a fierce new lunchbox like one of these from

Rockin' The Back To School Style

Every little back to school wardrobe for our family isn't complete without some skulls (MJ's favorite) and a rockin' leather jacket. The pink cuffs on this leather motorcycle jacket is to die for and Old Navy has some pretty awesome skull sports shirts this fall.

How Do Kids Feel About Inked-Up Parents?

Our tattoos represent our personality, our history, our creativity (our mistakes), and are just plain fun (until we decide their mistakes, lol). People of all ages are tattooed now and the exposure to our children's isn't something that we typically consider. But should we? How do your kids respond to your tattoos?  We'll never really know how they will impact the future of our kids, but for now....

Which will you end up with???

In my home, my kids are constantly exposed to tattoos because my husband is a tattoo artist. In our family each kid reacts differently. MJ has absolutely no interested in them, doesn't care to see what daddy does, and NEVER wants to get a tattoo. LaLa on the other hand, is obsessed. She loves to look at them, always wants fake tattoos, and constantly asks daddy to draw on her. My children hold no prejudice towards tattoos and will never disrespect anyone based on the ink on their skin, but how exactly will it influence them when they grow up? What do you think?
