Our teachers are on strike here in B.C. (rightfully so, in my not-so-humble opinion). But as the strike drags on and all people concerned with ending the strike drag their feet, the tinies continue to wait in an unending summer. Thankfully all of the Facebook back-to-school photos of beaming school children have ceased which means I’m not being gripped by jealousy everytime I scroll through my newfeed. It’s not just that it’s disruptive to our life and schedule, it’s also that the tinies truly love and miss school. My eldest daughter is (hopefully at some point!) headed into Grade 3, then our son is off to Grade 1, and our youngest starts preschool this year.
But the strike hasn’t stopped me from some hopeful back-to-school shopping. Delusional and hopeful, that’s me.
We recently picked up these items for our tinies at JoeFresh.com. Both of the girls love comfy dresses with leggings. And Joe just loves that these clothes come with his name already on the tag.
We’ve always loved JoeFresh clothes from The Real Canadian Superstore and now they’re available online (which, for anyone who has ever tried to take three tinies back-to-school shopping, HALLELUJAH). The clothes are stylish while being age appropriate – and I can actually afford them, you know? (In fact, their kids and toddler denim is 2 for $14 right now.)
To celebrate (the rest of you lucky parents and) your back-to-school week,
I have a $50 giveaway to JoeFresh.com online!
You can do quite a bit of damage with $50, you know.
