After my first week on my own with all four little ones there are a few things I have learnt, one of them being that getting the kids dressed and ready for school takes a lot of time. I quickly got in the habit of packing the kindy bags and putting out their clothes the night before which really helped. We also paid a quick visit to our local Target Newton store for some new kindy outfits that are easy for them to put on. The past month the baby has been spoilt with lots of gifts so this time the big three got to pick their own outfit (a bit risky I know!):
First up was Olivia (4 years old), she has ‘strong leadership skills’ (you could call it bossy) so she made very clear what she wanted: a toasty warm top to wear when it is cold outside and pink pants to wear to kindy. Now ideally darker pants would be a safer choice but this time she got her way. It took her a while to browse all the kids tops (so much choice when you are four!) and she ended up choosing a sweet navy cat print hoodie ($16) and these cute pink/white spot Full Length Leggings ($7).
It looks just gorgeous together as the spotty lining of the hood and pockets matches the leggings so I won’t complain about the colour choice of the pants. I am already happy that the navy top will hide most of the marks she’ll make on them during outside play and craft.
I’ll be honest and tell you that Tommie (4 years old) really wanted to pick a pair of Jake the Pirate pyjamas but I was able to convince him that they weren’t exactly kindy material… Luckily for me he is easily pleased so he settled on this blue/green striped Pullover Fleece Hoodie ($14) without complaint. Teamed up with a pair of kids jeans they make a cool and comfortable outfit for his days at school.
Our beautiful Juliet (2 years old) usually follows in her big sister’s footsteps so she picked something pink too. Juliet loves birds (we often call her our little birdy) so I wasn’t surprised at all that she chose this lovely Girls Mix + Match Ruched Sleeve Heart Top ($12). In fact she was so interested in the pretty embroidery and button detail that she didn’t really care about pants anymore. I quickly grabbed a pair of the striped Target Essentials Leggingss ($7) to complete the outfit, easy.
Thanks to some great discounts on the majority of kids clothing I only had to pay $47 at the checkout for the lot, pretty good if I say so myself!
