Happy New Year… mom’s New Year that is! It’s that time of year again when summer is coming to a close and all of us moms are running around trying to get all of our kids ready for the new school year.
If you’re like me, you’re excited. Excited for a fresh start. New clothes. Regular bed times. Routine. Can I get an amen?!
While my kids don’t technically start school until the 15th, this household is all about back to school prep this week. I even somehow convinced the entire family to go to the mall with me this weekend (with only one stop at Auntie Anne’s)! I was preparing myself for plenty of eye rolling and hangry attitudes, but surprisingly enough they were pretty good, hubby included. Often times they’re the worst. lol
Even though my kids wear school uniforms, there is still so much to shop for – socks, shoes, after school athletic wear and don’t forget underwear! Let’s face it, kids are messy, the weather changes so drastically and they outgrow their clothes so quickly. My biggest piece of advice to you is buy something that is replaceable. I mean, how many times has that sweatshirt NOT made it home.
You can find so many great items at stores like Land’s End, J. Crew, Old Navy and Gap. In fact, Land’s End has THE BEST boy’s pants with reinforced knees. You know what that means…no patching and replacing when they get home!
Check out all of the back to school goodness below. Not to mention most of what’s below is on Back-to-School SALE! I hope you find something you like, or better yet something your kids like! Am I riiiight?!?! Remember the days when they had NO opinion. Ha!
Stay tuned the rest of this week because I’ll be coming along on this back to school journey with you, sharing some of my favorite easy weeknight recipes, school supplies and more!
Set those alarms mommas and hang in there! We got this.
