Big School Uniform #Memory Box

I've hunted high and hunted low and asked friends for advice and ... drum roll please - Ta Da!
I have found non scratchy tops and non scratchy skirts and pinafores for Big School Uniform.
Very pleased and impressed with my discovery and lovely purchases!
We have lots of sets - ready and waiting to be spare sets for the days when we are a little overwhelmed and don't quite make it to the bathroom in time.
We have spare sets for after muddy days, puddle jumping in the rain days, I've enjoyed all my lunch days, paint all over everything days, glue stick it all like it is your last glue stick days and spare sets for when I haven't caught up with all the washing and drying days.
Big School has a rather attractive school logo, which PJ has shown interest in, thankfully and we have talked about the school cardigans and the school sweatshirts and made our choice.
I wanted to try some of the big school uniform on before I iron in all the name labels and did this with PJ standing in front of big long mirror in the bathroom.
She obliged and was intrigued to try her new big school uniform on. As she twirled in the skirt and spun out of the bathroom, I asked her what she thought of her new Big School Uniform:
It's fabudiculus, Mum!
Phew!
I just hope that I get some cooler evenings over the summer holidays to iron in all the labels and that the big school uniform is still just a bit too big in September!

  2. I feel that the word 'fabudiculus' needs to be used much more widely!

  3. Aw, I love seeing Mini in his new uniform each year, all the children look so smart...by the end of each year there is pen all over the jumpers (why do they use non-washable pens in schools??!), scuffed shoes and the trousers are a bit too short!
    Thanks for linking up with #MemoryBox

    1. the uniform all looks so pristine at the moment. Shame they have to wear it and get beans, glue, paint and yes, those non washable pens all over them!

  4. How great that she seems to be coping with this exciting time and embracing the new things. I could just imagine her twirling around. Really lovely post and thanks for sharing on Memorybox. x

  5. Excited for you both! It's such a big move. Try this - take a photo on the first day of term every September and watch her grow!!!
    We do it every year and then put them all on the kids' timelines (more info about the timelines on the blog if you're interested!)

    1. I think it is a great idea - might need to do it a few days before the first day as she might be more cooperative - but a photo every year of the first day will be a great one to follow - especially when the dreaded school photos are usually rubbish x
