Both of my kids headed back to school this week – and by school for her, I mean daycare. Womp.
While I still cringe at the thought of sending her every day, it’s been really good for her. She’s developed so many social skills over the past year, and loves being around other kids. I can def attribute that to daycare, even though I’d much rather the nine hours a day she spends with someone be with me (as exhausted as it used to make me). But life works in ways we can’t always plan and we have to think that everything happens for a reason!
So, I promised you I would share a few of our fav things for heading back to school this year, and by far it has to be this Miss Mouse backpack from Dabbawalla. I mean….squeal a hundred times!!
This line from their Web site says it all for me: “crafted from a revolutionary material that is degradable, recyclable and 100% toxic free, with zero lead, BPA-free, and no phthalates or PVC.” I mean, who wouldn’t love a cute backpack with these qualities, right?
There are a lot of really cute ones (including this cat!), and Miss Mouse is actually on sale now! It’s only $32 and, of course, you can personalize it for extra. The size of these bags is great for daycare and preschool because it’s “just right.” And promise you they look brand new after ages of wear and tear (must be that eco-friendliness in play).
Function, too? Oh, yes. It has a top handle, and easily adjustable straps that actually adjust from the inside. It’s pretty nifty.
little C. had a Dabbawalla when he was little, and I’m pretty much obsessed at this point. Be sure to check out the site for your fav pattern, and the matching lunch bag, too!
Happy back to school. It’s going to be a GREAT year…I can feel it.
P.S. If you’re wondering about little C getting some love, rest assured, he wouldn’t budge from his former backpack. What can I say, he loves his routines like his mama.
