Sorry to intrude .. just some friendly advice from an old mum who has been through this ... school shoes... buy early enough so that they can wear them in before school starts ... nothing worse than new shoes and blisters ... my 2 always wore their school shoes for 20 mins each day just around the house to get their feet used to them. Hope this little tip helps
Great tip Louise! How fast do kid's feet grow at age 5-6?
Hello my third born is starting school next year. His pretty lucky as his biggest brother will be in year 6 so will be his buddy. His little brother will miss him so badly though as they currently go to preschool together and do everything together.
He has orientation starting the end of this month for 3 weeks which is good as he got a little confused as my second child has asd and is in a support unit classroom fenced off and he thought he was going to go into his brothers class when he started school.
@Ahalfdozen they look really good might have to look in the supermarket too. Your lunch boxes look so organised al packed up and laid out.
@Elijahsmum thanks for sharing your super awesome with food. Your photos might have convinced me.
Apologies if this has been said.
If your buying school uniforms from retail stores please don't leave it until the last minute as most likely the sizes you want will
Be gone and if you see trackie pants and jumpers get them aswell because when it is cold you'll find it hard to get the colours you want. I work in retail when not on mat leave and so many parents leave it until the last minute. Same goes for sports day colour clothes.
Back to school catalogues come out the 2nd wk after Xmas so get in early
I'm just butting in here to see ideas. My child will start kinder next year, so just looking and reading at ideas.
