It is had to believe how close we’re getting to the start of the new school year. In Michigan we don’t start until after Labor Day, so we have a bit longer than many of you. Still with August staring me in the face I know it’s time to start thinking about getting back to school ready, and that includes new clothes from Gymboree.
Getting Back to School Ready with Gymboree – Fall 2017
Nick went a long time without much of a growth spurt. We’re talking over a year here, but that all changed last year. He hit a big growth spurt in kindergarten and kept having them. He’s already had one this summer too, which means he doesn’t need just a few new things for school. He practically needs a whole new wardrobe!
Luckily I can get him so many things to wear at Gymboree. Plus they always have great deals going on that you can’t beat!
I just love Gymboree clothes. Nick has always been tall and skinny, so clothes shopping for him is often difficult. Getting long enough pants with a tiny waist is tough! I have always had good luck getting clothes that fit him at Gymboree though.
Due to his long legs pants are always one of the things Nick outgrows first. Towards the end of the spring I had noticed many of his pants getting short again, but we made them work. Why buy new pants when there was no gurantee that they would still fit right come fall.
Now he needs a lot of new pants though. I just love these Pull-On Straight Jeans. With their soft elastic waist they are easy for Nick to pull up and down on his own. After years of subbing in schools I know how tough zippers and snaps are for young kids.
I admit that I hate having to even think about back to school time. I suppose I’m not a normal parent as I’d rather have Nick home with me without the stress of everything that goes along with school. Still I can’t stop the new school year from coming, and it’ll be better if I’m prepared for it. At least with Gymboree I can take the stress and frustration out of back to school clothes shopping.
