Final week, James began preschool. The dangerous information is I miss him as my fixed companion, however the excellent news is: he completely loves it. On the drive there within the mornings he tells me, “I’m so excited!!” After I decide him up within the afternoons, he tells me the issues he did (“I washed my arms!!”). Daniel and I are so joyful and relieved that he’s adjusting effectively to a brand new state of affairs, particularly after final 12 months and never seeing many individuals.
Naturally, I needed to make the transition as simple as potential for him. I attempted my hardest to get all of the issues he would wish (what the heck is a rain swimsuit?) whereas ensuring he’d like them, too. That meant virtually all the pieces was dinosaur themed, however no less than he was joyful to take his lunchbox to high school! Right here is a number of the nice choices I discovered!
My Favourite Finds for Preschool
Nike Flex Runner in sport/royal with college purple
Nike Flex Plus in smoke gray
James has worn these sneakers for a 12 months now and I can’t say sufficient good issues about them. They’re comfortable, breathable, tremendous versatile, and light-weight. The loops on the again and tongue make it really easy for him to tug on, too.
At his preschool, the youngsters put on out of doors footwear and indoor footwear (that they go away in school). They advisable Crocs clogs for indoor footwear. James has been sporting them round the home for a couple of weeks to get used to them and to date they’re nice. Light-weight, simple to scrub, simple to slip-on, and the heel band helps them keep on.
Crocs rain boots
These are the rainboots he’s worn for the previous 2 years (in numerous sizes). Fully waterproof, not too heavy, washable, and the handles on the perimeters are one of the best half. They make it really easy for James to tug on and off.
Pottery Barn Youngsters Mackenzie Dino backpack (small measurement)
James loves dinosaurs and this backpack is roofed in them. It’s cute, water resistant, and sturdy, with padded shoulder straps. I feel the small measurement will serve us effectively for a pair years. Oh, and we obtained it monogrammed together with his title.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some purpose, I simply actually needed a yellow rain jacket for him. This one is lovely. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so maintain that in thoughts if you happen to’re on the lookout for a fall jacket with slightly extra heat within the lining.
CamelBak water bottle
Leakproof, spill-proof, BPA-free, and dishwasher protected
Wildkin Dinosaur Lunch Bag
I pack this with a snack, fabric serviette, and James’s water bottle suits proper inside (he comes house earlier than lunch), however it’s going to match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Youngsters Reusable Face Masks
James’s college asks that youngsters solely put on strong colour masks (prints may be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful fabric masks has been an awesome choice to date. The masks are light-weight, machine-washable, the ear straps are adjustable, and there’s a bendable nostril clip throughout the cloth to assist the masks keep safe. Bonus: there’s slightly tag to jot down his title on every masks.
