getting ready...

Every Summer I say the same thing, but this year it sure does feel like our carefree days have flown by. The little pumpkin starts Kindergarten August 17th, followed by Hudson starting Preschool right after Labor Day. Elementary School...so official sounding. 


I'm already working on not being a complete mess on the first day.  Her school has a Boo Hoo Breakfast for parents right after the kindergarteners go to their classrooms...quite fitting, huh?


But for now, here's a bit of fun. I'm sooooo excited about the cute outfit the little pumpkin will be wearing her first day, she is too. Here's a little sneak peek...
And GASP! she even told me when she saw these capris that she has finally decided it might be okay to wear some pants...not all the time, but some, "especially if they have pink on them". Dare I believe that the pants boycott has been lifted???!?
Hudson's outfit hasn't come in yet, but it sure is cute too, in a big boy kind of way. I know, I know you're thinking, "polka dot apples are NOT big boy clothes"...ha!  They are if you live in the South!! 

And if you're from the South then I know you can relate to this: it pained my heart so to not buy a single jon jon/longall for back to school. Yes, all big boy clothes. He still fits into jon jons but now that he is potty trained {Allelulia!}, it's too hard for him to go to the potty by himself wearing jon jons.
I'm super excited to make him some fun pants out of this fabric I found yesterday - who knew the classifieds could look so stylish!!
I finished all the back-to-school shopping yesterday with a marathon day outfitting Hudson with new clothes.  Hudson is tall and skinny and finding pants that fit is soooo hard.  But four stores later I think we're finally done - woo hoo!  Trying on clothes on a 3 year old wiggly little boy who has no interest at all whatsoever in clothes should be an Olympic sport all on its own, don't you think???

I am going to need a boo hoo DAY! LOL. My oldest will be in Pre-K at the elementary school this year and my youngest will be in pre school.. Both going to school all day, 5 days a week.. What am I going to do with myself!? I have loved the preparation though. Shopping and making gifts is my favorite. :)

Oh my, so sweet! Enjoy the back to school shopping now. When they only want 5 pair of jeans and a pair of cowboy boots it is just not the same... but I will say our school has uniforms and with 3 kids in 3 different schools, it is wonderful!

Can you tell me where you ordered the cute apliqued apple shirt. So cute. Love Grace's outfit also.

So where did you end up for Hudson? My Sam is skinny too and we haven't had much luck :( And I don't even want to talk about the HUGE STACK of adorable MJ and Naartjie clothes my girls won't wear. They want WORK OUT clothes and tennis shoes {UGH}. Quick! I need another LITTLE girl in the house :)

Jessica said...

I ended up buying jeans for Hudson at The Children's Place since they have those adjustable tabs on the inside, corduroy pants at the Gymboree Outlet since they were elastic waist with no belt loops and run pretty long, and sports pants at Carter's - LOVE Carter's waist on their pants for boys, but their jeans were too short for Hudson. Hope that helps!

Jessica said...

Oh, and you'll be getting another little girl soon and I'm so beyond excited about that!!!! :)

Erica said...

I so enjoy your blog! Good luck with heading back to school!

I recongize that outfit. As my search continued for the perfect back to school outfit, I took your advice and looked at babeagogo. I bought the same outfit! :) I decided to make her 1st day dress, but couldn't pass up that cutie too! :)
