It's almost that time of year again, back-to-school. Each year, my girls look forward to going back-to-school shopping. Let's be honest, my girls look forward to shopping period but back-to-school is special to them because they go to a school where they have to wear uniforms. The only way they can express their own individual style is through their hair, socks, shoes, jewelry and school supplies because their uniforms all look the same. It sounds like such a small thing but I've learned that these back-to-school shopping trips are very important to my girls.
It's all about the tiny details when we shop back-to-school. Sure every back-to-school shopping list has pencils and folders and backpacks and lunchboxes and these things seem unimportant in the grand scheme of things to the average student but when it's your only way to let your own personal sense of style shine through, it becomes a really big deal. So we spend a few days each summer shopping for accessories like it's our job and we have a great time doing it togetherRead More
When my kids were little -- preschoolers and a few years beyond -- I had free reign over choosing their back to school clothing. My husband and I would take them on a big shopping trip before school started, hold up items to make sure they would fit, and then walk away with all of their clothing needs met. Things have changed.
For the last two years our son has been a part of an integrated preschool program (children with disabilities learning right alongside typically developing children) for early intervention. As a child with social-emotional delays in addition to his sensory difficulties, school can be tough for him. These last two years we have worked hard to cultivate confidence in him that school is a safe place. He musters the courage to go, but it isn't always easy. And that is downright heart-squeezing for me. It's awful to our children afraid, isn't it?Read More
Back to School Shopping for my daughter has always been quite the adventure. She's very, how can I put this, particular? Picky? Dramatic? She doesn't like clothes that are too tight, or too loose, or too frilly or that make her "look like a cowgirl" (WHAT?) and now we can add "too little girl-ish because I'm almost ten years old, Mom!" Can you relate? If so, I want to help you!
The new school year is fast approaching and as I plan for my son to begin second grade, my top priority is for him to learn a lot and have fun while doing it. As far as I’m concerned having fun is a top priority and when partnered with education, the sky’s the limit! From my son’s style of dress to his backpack, notebooks and accessories, everything this year is going to be on point!
