For many families, this week means a whole new world of firsts. The first day of school is always a biggie – new backpacks, lunch boxes, teachers, classmates, activities, routines, and sometimes new schools. And my favorite part….back to school shopping.
Theo is now in the “2’s” class, sometimes known as Early Preschool. He brings a legit lunchbox (and that experience earned itself its own post – coming soon), practices sitting on the potty (!!), puts on his jacket and shoes, cleans up his play area (we’re working on this one), has the newfound freedom of “Free Play”, and just yesterday, was learning how to express his feelings. His vocabulary has exploded and can carry on legit conversations and loves to tell stories.
It’s wild to see Theo change before our eyes. He’s no longer my awesome baby. He’s my awesome little boy.
As for Back to School style for our very active toddler dude who is also growing like a weed, I like to invest in clothing items that are a breeze to mix and match in the midst of an already zany morning. On this day, blues, classic boat stripes, and a cool camo print were the winning combo and matched back to T’s favorite The Land of Nod Deep Sea Bedding. And below are a few of our current blue themed (and affordable) faves for little dudes everywhere.
What are some of your favorite Back to School style find this month? And any tips for a smooth transition to a new school year? I love hearing your awesome stories!
Here’s to a new chapter for our littles.
