When school is back in session one of my #KidGoals is to make sure no one forgets anything once they walk out the door. With four kids in four different schools, that’s a pretty lofty goal but with some organization and night before planning, I have a feeling it will get accomplished.
My sons were happy to hear first day of school outfits were arriving yesterday compliments of Gymboree. Truth be told, I let them each pick one item and then I built their outfit around it.
My 10 year old wanted the orange shark tee shirt — of course! — and I knew shorts with orange included would be a hit. This outfit will be perfect as the first day is still warm but the layered shirt will keep him from being chilly in the often air conditioned classrooms.
My six year old loves Spider-Man so when he picked the shorts I knew I had to make it a fun outfit. Collared shirt with a hidden shark tank underneath. And I paired it with an airplane hoodie because he always needs a hoodie in his classroom. He’s still the only one of my sons who can fit Gymboree shoe sizes. Those high top sneakers made me want to cry. He’s now a first grader and really looks it.
My 12 year old always has Minecraft and Pokemon on his mind and that means he was thrilled to choose the Pixel Camo shirt in his favorite color. When he walks the halls in his new middle school, practicing Mandarin with friends at lunch, I want him to be comfortable in what he’s wearing. I think he will be.
Gymboree has been celebrating childhood with colorful, quality clothing for over 30 years so I had no doubt my children would love what I chose for them — even if what I put together wasn’t exactly coordinated. I want my children to be kids and play as much as they work hard this school year.
What are some of your #KidGoals this school year?
Thanks Gymboree for the first days of school outfits for my sons!
