You’ll probably hear me say this about 150 times before September 1st rolls around (so I apologize in advance) but I cannot believe that my little Alea is going to be in 1st grade this year. It just doesn’t seem real to me. Preschool and Kindergarten felt like big steps, but 1st grade feels like an even bigger step. I wonder which grade I’ll stop crying proud tears and happy with a few sad tears, too, that my baby girl is growing up? Or if this shock will ever end?
I certainly hope not, because I have another little on the way with all kinds of firsts ahead of her, too!
My little-big girl is becoming extremely picky about what she does and does not wear. I never remember being so fashionably inclined at the age of 6, but boy does my little girl have an opinion when it comes to her clothes. I bought her a button down shirt last year that she literally would not wear because she didn’t like that it had so many buttons. (Insert eye roll here!) And she’s very particular about pairing certain styles.
I was a little nervous heading into the school clothes shopping season with such an opinionated little Miss, but as soon as I showed her the Mini Boden fall line, she was practically doing cartwheels in the living room! Before I knew it, she was picking out shirts with horses on it, requesting overalls, and oohing and ahhing over all of the stripes and polka dots! It’s safe to say she was swooning.
And even more so when her clothes arrived. I was immediately impressed with the quality you can literally feel in the clothes. The fabric was thick and not sheer and the long-sleeved tops were so very soft. And did I mention they’re tagless? Major score! Alea hates tags itching the back of her neck! I have to say, my absolute favorite part is the quality and knowing that they’ll last through Alea’s wear and tear and they’re clothes that maintain their style and shape so they can be passed down to younger siblings.
