A Teacher’s Stocking

Yes, I’m late posting this, but I wanted to share with you all today just how I know that my husband really listens.

Here are the contents of my stocking this year:


A giant Sharpie Magnum because, seriously, every teacher needs a trusty Sharpie or two and this thing is HUGE.

A cube of Post-It notes, but he knew well enough not to get pastels or those stupid ones that alternate which way they stick. (Seems like a little thing, but I write upside down on them Every. Time.)

Binder clips, which even Mr. Minimalist Husband said I could “probably never have too many of” in pretty, colorful designs even though they cost more, just because he knew I use them all the time and they’d make me happy.

Ballpoint InkJoy pens because I specifically mentioned how I hated that none of my colorful gel pens (usually my preferred writing tool) could be used for writing responses in my kids’ reading notebooks because they bleed through the pages.

Super Sticky Post-Its with lines because he knows I like to use bigger Post-Its for making lists.

Oh, and the rest of my stocking gifts?


A BIG bag of candy cane Kisses, KitKat, Peanut Butter M&Ms, and even the European strawberry chocolate I love. Basically, all of my favorites- even the seasonal or imported ones.

And then he asked if I was going to take a picture of my stocking goodies that proved how well he knew me so I could brag to bloggy friends. Does he know me, or what?

P.S. -- Over half of this candy is now gone. Well, over half and counting :)


  1. OMG!!! That is like THE perfect stocking!! I guess you have to be a teacher to appreciate it! :) I love everything in that stocking. Your husband did a great job!! Colorful pens are necessary in the classroom!!!

  2. You did well if only half the candy is gone...I'd have probably eaten it all the first day!

  3. Holy biscuits that Sharpie is amazing! I've never seen one of those before!
