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!!” Once I choose 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 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 straightforward as attainable for him. I attempted my hardest to get all of the issues he would wish (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 least he was glad 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 crimson
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 children put on outside sneakers and indoor sneakers (that they depart in school). They beneficial Crocs clogs for indoor sneakers. James has been sporting them round the home for just a few weeks to get used to them and up to now they’re nice. Light-weight, straightforward to wash, straightforward 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). Utterly waterproof, not too heavy, washable, and the handles on the edges are the perfect half. They make it really easy for James to tug on and off.
Pottery Barn Children Mackenzie Dino backpack (small dimension)
James loves dinosaurs and this backpack is roofed in them. It’s cute, waterproof, and sturdy, with padded shoulder straps. I believe the small dimension will serve us effectively for a pair years. Oh, and we obtained it monogrammed along with his identify.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some motive, I simply actually needed a yellow rain jacket for him. This one is lovable. 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 secure
Wildkin Dinosaur Lunch Bag
I pack this with a snack, material serviette, and James’s water bottle matches proper inside (he comes dwelling earlier than lunch), however it’ll match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Children Reusable Face Masks
James’s college asks that children solely put on strong shade masks (prints will be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful material masks has been an ideal possibility up to now. 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 slightly tag to write down his identify on every masks.
