Motherhood Musings :: School

This morning, the hubby and I were talking about how one of his co-workers is starting school soon. And, it hit me as I looked at our little peanut, that in a few short years, she will be starting school as well. Being almost 35 weeks pregnant and hormones all over the place, it was pretty easy to start crying.

When did your little ones start preschool? Or did you wait until they were about to start kindergarten to have them enrolled in school?

Until, next time!

Style Corner :: Neutral Sandals

I was in the market for some casual, low-heeled sandals, that can be dressed up and down, and I came across these from Zara {see below}. I mentioned before in this previous post that I didn't know how comfortable the Zara shoes are for women, since my only experience with them has been getting them for my little one.

Zara - Sandals
I've worn them out all day while attending a cousin's wedding and running around after my toddler and all I can say is that they were very comfortable. I can see myself wearing these sandals out a lot. Another thing to point out, they are also very comfortable walking around in, being almost eight months pregnant. If you are in the market for sandals similar to these, feel free to check them out at your local Zara store or onlineZara does offer free shipping when you purchase $50 or more.

Until, next time.

Style Corner :: Nursing Friendly Clothes

With a new baby on the way, I've been looking into getting new tops/clothes that do double-duty. Something that I can wear and be comfortable and something that I can easily nurse in. It's always good to look into tops that pull double-duty, so you can get more bang for your buck. It is much easier buying tops that are already nursing friendly than look for tops or dresses that you think can be nursing friendly.

I've lived in the following tops (styles shown for the current season) for the 20 months that I've nursed the little peanut. These tops have been through a lot and are needing replacement.

Until, next time!

Style Corner :: Dressing Little Peanut {Baby Gap}

Lately, the weather has been great. Sunny with blue skies. With spring upon us, I've been eyeing these cute clothes for the little peanut from Gap. Gap usually has deals going on both in store and on-line. The nice thing about going to stores, is that you can feel the quality of the item you are looking at and be able to take it home with you immediately. Buying things online help curb the trigger finger tendency when a great deal comes on and you have to wait for the items to arrive.

Baby Gap - Eyelet Tulip-Sleeve Dress

Until, next time!

Page 69 of 365 :: Dressing a Toddler

Since having the little peanut, it's been great having to choose what clothes or outfit she will wear as we go about our day. It's easier to be able to just grab clothes and know that she'll look great in it and that both mommy and daddy are happy with it. Lately though, she has been more vocal in choosing her clothes for the day. And, it's very exciting to watch her independence blossom by her vocalizing her choices in what clothes she wants to wear. There are still days that we are able to dress her in what we want but I can see that changing soon.

They do grow up too fast.

Until, next time.
