Back to School with Gymboree

Disclosure: The following blog post contains affiliate sales links.

Gymboree always has the cutest clothes! I love, love, love the looks they've put together for kids this fall. I always say Gymboree carries clothes that "Mom's want to see their kids in". The clothes that just scream..."I'm cute and well cared for"..LBS. Although they have a variety of styles and collections I gravitate towards their preppier looks. So when it comes time for Back to School shopping, I'm there. Picture day, there. Formal but informal events, there. School assembly, concert just about every occasion...I'm there. I've gathered a few of my favorite looks...I hope you enjoy. Oh, and right now everything in store and online is 16.99 or less.

The first outfit going clockwise is a super cute and probably super comfortable dress and it's paired with some of the designed to maych tights and knee high boots. This is the type of outfit my 9 year old likes to wear on outings and to birthday parties. 

The next three outfits I picked with my four year old son in mind. He will be going to preschool this year and I just love these rugby, preppy big boy looks on him.

Below are a few outfits I chose with my Kindergartener and nine year old in mind again. The floral with the prepster blazer and pink hat just screams five year old fashionista. I really love girly things like prints and bows. Gymboree dresses with matching sun hats are just right for soaking up these last weeks of summer. Click one of the links above and shop Gymboree.

The streaker

Would someone please tell me why, why three year olds are so difficult. My three year old is smart and cute and can really be sweet on a blue moon but he is also extremely demanding. Demanding of energy...lately it's been due to his streaking through the house naked. Why? Who knows but I think it starts with him using the toilet and he forgets that the rest of the world is not interested in seeing so much of him. Specifically his sisters...as I'm typing this I'm starting to remember my seven year old going through something similar at his age. Yes. My boys do enjoy exhibitionism. Hopefully this faze passes quickly as he begins Preschool this fall. Prayers. :)

Descendants, Disney's New tv Movie

Our family was selected to host a HouseParty viewing party for Disney's latest TV movies, "Descendants". It's all about the Disney villians descendants. Theirs Carlos Cruela Devilles son, Evie the daughter of the evil queen in Snow White, Mal Maleficents daughter and Jay son of Jafar the villian from Alladin. As complete and total Disney fanatics we were super thrilled and had an amaxing time planning and hosting this party despite some major hiccups along the way. My two oldest daughters read the prequel Isle of the Lost as part of their summer reading and we enjoyed the party pack goodies like the hair extensions and iron ons too. All in all it was a great experience and an awesome movie which left us with the message that we each choose whether to do right or wrong, whether to be good or bad and anyone can be redeemed and change if that's what they choose. Check it out...

Graco Comfy Cruiser Travel System in Stratus

I was recently contacted to review a Graco Click Connect Comfy Cruiser Travel System. I was super excited to say the least.  The system arrived and I couldn't have been happier. I received the Stratus style system and I really like the contrasting blues and the sky print pattern. The stroller was super easy to set up we were rolling twenty minutes out of the box.
The carseat itself is lightweight and the stroller can be folded and unfolded with one hand. The only thing that wasn't a winner for me was that the carseat insert wasn't full enough to support baby's head. There would be times when his head would tilt or bend over to the side because there was so much room in the seat without a cushion to support him sitting upright. Even still, this is an uber nice system and it's moderately priced so that you could purchase an infant head support separately. Personally I'm waiting until he is a few months older to use this system because I love the stroller too much to let it go  and I'll continue to have him in another carseat.

Diapers, diapers, diapers

While I was pregnant I seriously considered cloth diapering. I know...
It sounded amazing. First, I got excited about the idea of all natural cotton against my baby's skin and how less chemicals meant less incidence of eczema,  which my kiddos all have had at one time or another.
Then there was the cloth diaper gang...
"You'll save a ton of money" they said. Yeah, eventually. First you'll fork out a few hundred for your adorably addictive practice to begin with.
"Don't contribute to the billions of diapers in our landfills...yada, yada, ya.  I'm here for helping the environment, I'm in tune with Mother Nature.  I'd like to think we live a green lifestyle, okay pale yellow but the point is... we try. 
I researched a lot and invested a little. Finally settling on whats called the prefolds and cover method. Until the reality of life and laundry for a family o eight drop kicked me back to my senses. So we're using disposables...for now.
