I seriously am still kind of in shock that I have a daughter who is a senior in High School and a son in the eighth grade and boy have the – Back to School Essentials That Help Kids Get their Swag On – changed over the past couple of years!
I remember putting my daughter in her very first pre-school class at two and a half years old- with her my little pony lunch bag and I have these vivid sense memories ( I can remember what I was wearing, what color my hair was) and standing outside the classroom door while she cried for a solid twenty minutes straight. And my son followed suit , except as soon as he started to cry the teachers knew they had to have a garbage pail at the ready because he would inevitably vomit from crying so much. Fast forward all these years later and I’m lucky if I get and ” I love you too” as they walk out the door!
And while back to school shopping used to be me-alone- browsing the stores and picking up new clothing and gear for my kids- as they’ve gotten older they’ve taken much more of a vested interest in accompanying me on these back to school excursions as they have VERY strong opinions on what they will and won’t wear and be seen with and in! In other words our Back to School Essentials That Help Kids Get their Swag On have definitely evolved as they’ve gotten older!
