Here in Chicago, it’s the last week before school, and you can feel the heaviness in the air as children citywide bemoan the early wake-ups and homework filled weeks. However, my little ones are all excited. They are looking forward to learning more about the weather, more bugs, and anything else they deem interesting. I’m just trying to make sure that my babies will be fully clothed for our field trips, and that I won’t commit the cardinal sin of not making sure that they sign off of clothing BEFORE I purchase it. One of these days I’ll tell you about #overallgate from a couple of years ago. Good thing OshKosh B’gosh has SO many styles, because I couldn’t take another scandal with Lil’ Miss.
Believe it or not, they even enjoy getting dressed for the day. I’m talking full garb, and shoes. Shoes WITH socks people! They put it all on. And then of course we get to the second week, and we go back to homeschooling in undies and socks. Reality hits hard around these parts.
If you’re anything like I am, you are focused on trying to get a great bang for your buck and I truly believe that OshKosh B’gosh provides that. Given that you can combine all of their coupon codes (like the OKBG3136 for 25% off your oder) to your online orders, and that discount can be combined with great low prices for back to school time. Seriously, you should go and check it out. I’ll wait right here until you get back. Now that you’re back, and ready to finish reading, you can also find the OshKosh B’gosh store nearest you.
My girls are all about skirts and dresses. They love being able to have the freedom to twirl, and still climb trees. Cartwheeling and running free, but still having bright colors that make them feel a little bit girly, as told to me by Lil Miss. We’re still working on correct sitting position while wearing a skirt, but I’m of the let them live camp, so I don’t always push the envelope. Who can blame them for climbing trees and flipping all over the place when they have soft cotton maxi skirts and comfortable shirts? Lil’ Miss and her dance moves are free to be! And the ladybug can climb as many trees as she wants while styling and profiling!
Not to be outdone, Sir Twizzler, is quite at home in denim and a tee. Mom and dad tend to add a button up shirt over just to finish it off. I’m also very happy that the pants have the adjustable belts inside because my babiest of babies may have long legs, but his waist is relatively lean. It’s so irritating to find a pair of pants that fits lengthwise, but fall down constantly. Using safety pins like we did back in the day would be dangerous on the likes of Sir Twizzler. I can only imagine one popping open while he’s running around, or flipping, or jumping off of stairs, or rolling down hills. It’s always a party with Sir Twizzler, and I will always want to be invited.
Don’t let the reserved demeanor in this photo fool you. He’s spunky, and I wouldn’t want him any other way. Good thing his clothes will last as long as his spunkiness does. I know when I see that label on his shirt, or his pants, or his overalls (he happened to LIKE the overalls I purchased for him, unlike his twin sister, thankyouverymuch) they’ll last longer than he can fit them.
Are you looking to splurge for the beginning of the school year for your children too? It doesn’t even matter if school started at the beginning of this month, we can still pretend that new clothes need to be purchased, and that you are super excited about doing so. If you fit the bill, I have good news for you! How about a $50 OshKosh B’gosh gift card giveaway?! Does that sound good? To enter, I need you to tell me your FAVORITE first day of school memory. It can be your first day, or one of your children’s first days – just as long as it’s a favorite!
