Back to school time can bring out a range of emotions – sadness because my babies are growing up, happiness because they’re in the classroom and away from my refrigerator, and enthusiasm about a new year but one emotion I feel each and every year is frustration. Yes, I’m excited for a new school year, but I am not happy about back to school shopping. Back to school shopping can leave me so frustrated – running around from store to store to get everything on the list which means lots of time getting the kids in and out of the minivan and hours sitting in traffic – cue tears.
With two girls under the age of seven, I need to find a one-stop shop for clothes. Schools have their own supplies checklist for the new school year and so do I when it comes to clothing:
As a busy mom, juggling work, motherhood, wifehood (is that a word?), and the kitchen sink, I almost cried thinking about the task that is back to school shopping. About a week or two before school started, I began back to school shopping. Again, I was a tad bit worried about not finding everything in one place, but the school angels were on my side. I squealed with joy when I drove past OshKosh B’Gosh and read the signs about the sale they were having. My squeals of joy turned into sighs of relief when I went in and saw that their clothes passed all of the requirements on my checklist. You know what that meant? Shopping in ONE store, saving on gas, and saving money thanks to the sales.
At the end of our one-stop shopping trip, I gave a nod to the other moms in store – I conquered the back to school shopping task.
Oh, and I can’t forget our annual Back To School Fashion Show held in our hallway. Our fashion show is a fun and relaxing time when the girls get to show off their new clothes, a way for me to find out if everything fits correctly, and the perfect time to get pictures for Grandma.
Like I mentioned earlier, back to school is filled with tons of emotions – some good and some not so good – but thanks to OshKosh B’gosh, shopping for clothes this year was a breeze.
