The day I’ve been waiting for and dreading all at the same time is almost here. My first baby, Ayva, is starting pre-school. The closer it gets, the more I dread it. I just want to keep my baby home with me, but I know that’s selfish. She is going three days a week, for half days, so it’s not so bad I guess. It’s going to be so great for her. I know she will love it and do amazing! It’s been so fun “back to school shopping” with her. We have all of her school supplies, a back pack, lunch box.. we’re ready. Well, she’s ready. I’m not.
I’m normally all about Old Navy and H&M for kid’s clothes, but I recently discovered the cutest little line of kid’s clothing at Nordstrom, Tucker + Tate. The clothes are so cute, original and great quality, too! A lot of their summer items are on sale, while their fall collection is coming in. Their new fall items are included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which is coming to a close in a few days — August 6th.
Ever wondered what to do with all those broken crayons? Especially the little tiny pieces in the bottom of the crayon bin that not even your little toddler’s fingers can grip. Well, I’ve got a solution! And it’s not to throw them away, as tempting as that may be. I’ve got a fun little craft that even the kids can help participate in and it recycles every little broken crayon.
I thought I had so much more time before we got to preschool days. I remember when my 3 year old was a squishy little newborn and some of my friends’ older kids were starting Pre-K. I was so relieved because I really thought I had all the time in the world before having to face my first born starting school. Well.. here we are.
We are loving this Tutu Tank Dress from Old Navy! It’s our “Belle” dress according to my three year old.
The top is a jersey ballet-style with an adorable tutu-style skirt. Under the mesh-tulle skirt is a satin liner. I love how the spaghetti straps meet in the back. It comes in a variety of colors and is actually on SALE right now!
