  41. Betty February 9, 2011 at 1:29 pm #

    “Candy” – in case there’s confusion with the other things they put in their mouth

    “Thank you for being part of my life” – may be wordy, but I think it says it all

    “uoy evol” (inspired by my dyslexic child)
    “mama rules” “dada drolls” (for all of us moms) lol

  60. Jodi February 10, 2011 at 7:36 pm #

    I got them out of order… it’s

    “Live, Laugh, Lexapro” (I saw it on a picture frame at Kohl’s today)

  61. admin February 10, 2011 at 8:43 pm #

    Jodi, I love it, but just so we’re clear, Kohl’s is selling a Lexapro sign?

    2 suggestions: PTW and MOI

  76. Schmoopie February 11, 2011 at 1:06 pm #

    Lots of great responses!

    Rx (candy is medicine)

    “I wish I were chocolate” (from the candy’s point of view)

    how about just for awareness sake:

    PTSD
    ADHD
    PDD
    BP-NOS
    BP
    and on the back (love it Diane) PTW, MOI AND SUAYPK

    then again theres always: SWAF (SEALED WITH A FIST)

  77. Schmoopie February 11, 2011 at 1:07 pm #

    “uoy evol” (inspired by my dyslexic child)
