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 choose him up within the afternoons, he tells me the issues he did (“I washed my palms!!”). Daniel and I are so completely happy and relieved that he’s adjusting effectively to a brand new state of affairs, particularly after final yr and never seeing many individuals.
Naturally, I needed to make the transition as straightforward as potential for him. I attempted my hardest to get all of the issues he would want (what the heck is a rain swimsuit?) whereas ensuring he’d like them, too. That meant virtually every little thing was dinosaur themed, however at the least he was completely happy to take his lunchbox to high school! Right here is among the nice choices I discovered!
My Favourite Finds for Preschool
Nike Flex Runner in recreation/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 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 advisable Crocs clogs for indoor sneakers. James has been sporting them round the home for a couple of weeks to get used to them and to this point they’re nice. Light-weight, straightforward to scrub, 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). 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 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 feel the small dimension will serve us effectively for a pair years. Oh, and we bought 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 cute. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so maintain that in thoughts in the event you’re on the lookout for a fall jacket with a bit of 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, material serviette, and James’s water bottle suits proper inside (he comes house earlier than lunch), however it can match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Children Reusable Face Masks
James’s faculty asks that youngsters solely put on stable colour masks (prints will be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful material masks has been an amazing choice to this point. 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 a bit of tag to jot down his title on every masks.
