So soon?

I ran to the store on my lunch hour and saw tons of fall school clothes and school supplies on the shelves. I wanted to cry! It is too early! I love having my kids home with me. Are you seeing the same near you? Are you ready to shop for these things yet? Do you dread them going back?

  • I was at babies r us earlier and they had all freaking pants and long sleeve shirts out.  They also had Halloween costumes out.  It's freaking July!

  • She's starting Kindergarten on August 3rd. She's been in school for two years already, but that was the little preschool. This is the real thing. :-(
    I can't believe she's grown so much.
    Yeah, I'm seeing it. We've already started getting stuff since it starts so soon.

  • it's typical for them to do this because some people can't go on a spurge school shopping spree, and need to do it a little at a time, so while the sales are typically later in the season, they put things our early because the business is there.

    But my DD isn't in school she's only 2 1/2, so maybe next year I will start fretting about her going to school.

  • TY! I mentioned the other day that I needed loose leaf paper and wondered if there would be any back to school sales on it- my husband laughed and said it was too early-
    told him they start earlier and earlier with it anymore!

  • My kids go back to school in less than a month (Aug 5). It's always a little bittersweet for me--I get tired of them being underfoot all day, every day during the summer, but then I do miss them when they go back to school. I am going to try to do my back to school shopping in the next week or two before it gets completely chaotic with EVERYONE ransacking the shelves!

  • There was a lot of college / dorm stuff out when I went out earlier. I haven't noticed in the clothes yet. It's still bikinis, shorts, and tanks mostly.
