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 palms!!”). Daniel and I are so glad and relieved that he’s adjusting properly to a brand new state of affairs, particularly after final yr and never seeing many individuals.
Naturally, I wished to make the transition as simple as potential for him. I attempted my hardest to get all of the issues he would want (what the heck is a rain go well with?) whereas ensuring he’d like them, too. That meant virtually all the pieces was dinosaur themed, however at the very least he was glad to take his lunchbox to highschool! Right here is among 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 yr now and I can’t say sufficient good issues about them. They’re soft, 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 really useful Crocs clogs for indoor footwear. James has been sporting them round the home for a couple of weeks to get used to them and thus far 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 the very best half. They make it really easy for James to tug on and off.
Pottery Barn Youngsters Mackenzie Dino backpack (small dimension)
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 dimension will serve us properly for a pair years. Oh, and we obtained it monogrammed along with his identify.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some motive, I simply actually wished a yellow rain jacket for him. This one is lovely. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so preserve that in thoughts should you’re on the lookout for a fall jacket with somewhat extra heat within the lining.
CamelBak water bottle
Leakproof, spill-proof, BPA-free, and dishwasher secure
Wildkin Dinosaur Lunch Bag
I pack this with a snack, fabric serviette, and James’s water bottle suits proper inside (he comes dwelling earlier than lunch), however it’ll 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 shade masks (prints might be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful fabric masks has been an important possibility thus far. The masks are light-weight, machine-washable, the ear straps are adjustable, and there’s a bendable nostril clip inside the cloth to assist the masks keep safe. Bonus: there’s somewhat tag to put in writing his identify on every masks.
