Happy Tuesday, friends! Y'all, I just can't believe it's the middle of August and school is about to start (or has already started!) for everyone. Like, what?! I swear summer goes by faster and faster every year, so insane.
But I DO have to say this fall is extra special for us because it's the first year both kids will be attending the Mother's Day Out morning preschool program near our house! Silas will go 3 mornings a week, from 9am-1pm and Verity will go 2 mornings a week, also from 9am-1pm. I seriously don't know what I'm going to do with all the free time haha! I haven't been completely alone on a regular basis in almost 4 years, sooo... HELLOOO naps and coffee and quick errands and brunch with friends and and and and... need I go on?? ;)
Of course, as grateful as I am to have some alone time this coming year, I am sooo gonna miss having these sweet babies around 24/7!! Like, I want to cry when I think about it haha. But that's motherhood though, right?? Desperately needing a break and then feeling super anxious to get back home and all be together again. It's such a wild ride haha.
Needless to say, I've been running around like crazy, getting everything ready for the first day of school (x2). Backpacks, lunch boxes, lunch containers, new clothes, new shoes, the whole 9 yards, y'all! So I was super excited when Osh Kosh reached out about working together on their back-to-school campaign this month, because, hello, welcome to my life right now! Such perfect timing!! And I love the message behind the campaign: BE YOURSELF! I loveee helping Silas learn and realize that he was created so unique and so special and that he should never be anything other than himself!
He's also really started to get into fashion and always wants to make sure his clothes "match". He seriously lays out his entire outfit the night before and then begs to get dressed first thing in the morning -- it's truly the cutest thing I've ever seen haha. We loved picking out some awesome pieces at Osh Kosh that can all mix and match (you know how I feel about capsule wardrobes!!) for both kids and, of course, the quality can't be beat!
Okay, I know this is a long post but before I end this, a couple things to note:
