The time is fast approaching, my baby girl who’s been my shadow for over 4.5 years is starting her educational journey and starting Pre-School at the beginning of February. I’m super relieved that she got into our first choice as its a relatively small place and very nurturing.
We have a busy couple of weeks, with a parents evening to go through everything one more time and the chance to meet other parents whose kids are starting at the same time as well as a final playdate before she officially starts.
I’m feeling slightly flappy and emotional as my husband will be overseas for this period of time! I’m also feeling nervous about getting there on time and juggling with baby Noah needing his first nap around the same-time we need to be in the car etc…I have a feeling I will be doing lots of car naps in the first couple of months!
Because she’s never been in any form of care I’ve had to get a few bits to ensure a smooth transition which I wanted to share with you guys, plus I’ve been given some discount codes to share with you all!
Lunchbox and Bottle
PlanetBox Rover and Thermos FUNtainer
The PlanetBox Rover has pretty much been on my wish list for the past few years for Gracie. I know quite a few people that have had theirs for years and it’s looking just as good, which was a huge plus for me.
It is a more expensive box than the others on the market, but it’s 100% Stainless Steel and no chance of Gracie loosing the lid as it’s attached.
Gracie already has a Thermos FUNTainer and loves it. It has a handy handle, spill proof and is double walled so keeps drinks cooler for longer.
Sandwich Cutters and Stix
Lunchpunch do a cute range of sandwich cutters to jazz up your kids sandwiches and do little stix, which I like popping fruit and veggies on.
The backpack and pencil case she will be taking are from Bright Star Kids. I love that you’re able to personalise these back packs – Gracie loves that it has her name on it! The back pack has two main compartments and a large front pocket. There is also a mesh drink bottle pocket at the side of the bag.
