I seriously am still kind of in shock that I have a daughter who is a junior in High School and a son in the seventh grade. I remember putting my daughter in her very first pre-school class at two and a half years old- 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! So if your kids are still on the hunt for those quintessential products that will really make their school gear POP and will help them settle into their new surroundings with a sense of comfort keep reading for a few of my favorite products that are affordable for parents and ideas that kids will love — everything from trendy backpacks/attire, lunch supplies and more!
This on-the-go fruit juice drink for kids- is already super popular in the U.K.- and now it is helping U.S, kids like mine stay refreshed throughout the day. Every bottle of Fruit Shoot is made with real fruit juice from concentrate, plenty of water and no high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors. My son LIVES for Fruit Shoot® and he unequivocally agrees that it is TOTALLY ABLE to keep up with them and his “thing”.
Also, the re-sealable sports cap makes it a perfect drink for kids to bring on daily adventures and get their “thing” on such as lunchtime, recess and afterschool activities. Shoppers can find Fruit Shoot, available in eight flavors including his FAVE which is Fruit Punch, at most supermarkets nationwide.
