I love back to school time. Olivia will be going into 3rd grade, Johnny into kindergarten. There is something about this time of year that just feels so renewing to me, almost like New Year's Day. I want to clean, get rid of the old, start fresh.
The kids have all of their new clothes, sneakers, shoes and school supplies ready to go and I remembered with great fondness how wonderful it felt (as a kid) to have all those new items. As a kid, I loved new tall pencils sharpened to a perfect point with unused eraser tops. The feeling of a brand new crayon in my hand was nothing short of pure bliss. I won't even get started about new pristine notebooks! I always swore I was going to use my best handwriting in those new notebooks and never get messy. Now don't think for even a minute that I wasn't just as excited over new clothes...that feeling is indescribable! To this day, I love the feeling of new socks on my feet and new underpants on my...bottom.
So I asked myself yesterday, "why should I miss out of the fun of this refreshing new school year?" and "Who says you have to be in school in order to get back to school clothes?" So with that, I'm going to do a little back to school shopping for myself! Bet you'll never guess what my first purchases will be? Socks & underpants of course!
