Do you have the back to school blues or are dancing around the living room having a party? For us it has always been a mixture of both. Sad to know the boys are around less and we have less time as a family but always a little bit excited at the thought of a bit more me/us time. Although it never quite works out that way does it? Somehow the days just fill up with other stuff.
We are never quite ready for it either. There is always something left to buy last minute, like new schools shoes or a new school coat. Somehow something always gets forgotten. So if you are like me, less than organised when it comes to children and school, then here are some lovely items we have that might just solve your last minute shopping dilemmas.
Have you managed to find a decent winter coat yet? These Togz Warm and Dry Fleece lined kids jackets are perfect for those long walks to and from the school gates. The fleece and insulated mid-loft lining will keep your kiddos nice and toasty and the reflective trim will keep them seen on those cold dark mornings that sadly we all know are headed our way.
With the colder weather comes the rain and when it’s pouring down don’t jump in the car, bung on the waterproof trousers and splash your way to school. These basic children’s waterproofs are really reasonably priced and will make sure your kids arrive nice and dry even after lots of puddle splashing. Alternatively try a Target Dry Kids Rainsuit. These all in ones are really easy to get in and out of and can be easily packed into a school bag for rainy play times.
