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 completely satisfied 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 doable 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 every little thing was dinosaur themed, however at the least he was completely satisfied to take his lunchbox to highschool! Right here is among the nice choices I discovered!
My Favourite Finds for Preschool
Nike Flex Runner in recreation/royal with college pink
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 soft, breathable, tremendous versatile, and light-weight. The loops on the again and tongue make it really easy for him to drag on, too.
At his preschool, the youngsters put on outside footwear and indoor footwear (that they depart in school). They beneficial Crocs clogs for indoor footwear. James has been carrying them round the home for just a few weeks to get used to them and thus far they’re nice. Light-weight, simple to wash, 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 several sizes). Fully waterproof, not too heavy, washable, and the handles on the edges are the very best half. They make it really easy for James to drag on and off.
Pottery Barn Children 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 acquired it monogrammed together with his title.
Cat & Jack Yellow Raincoat
For some cause, I simply actually needed a yellow rain jacket for him. This one is lovely. It’s extra of a light-weight jacket, so preserve that in thoughts if you happen to’re searching for a fall jacket with a bit 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 dwelling earlier than lunch), however it should match a bento field or different lunch container and an ice pack!
Crayola Children Reusable Face Masks
James’s faculty asks that children solely put on stable shade masks (prints could be distracting to little ones). This 5-pack of colourful material masks has been an ideal choice 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 a bit tag to jot down his title on every masks.
