They are important for school obviously I was looking forward to taking Ami to buy a pair. Little did I know that it would be so stressful, I thought we could walk into clarks and be out 10 minutes later. Ami has always had wide feet and a high instep sadly Clarkes did not cater for this and as a result her feet her to wide for all the dainty shoes in there. Seriously why dont more girls shoes be made more robust, its funny all the boys shoes have toe guards but not the girls. We found a pair of shoes that finally fitted after two days of shoe shopping. They have lights they weren't too pricy and they fit, she loves them and wants to wear them all the time.
School Lunch Box
Who doesnt need a unicorn Lunchbox. Seriously I want this for me its so cute although she will get free school dinners as part of the government scheme its good that if she wants a change one day we have one free. The lunch box comes with a strap so is easy for her to carry around.
seriously look its amazing its from Sainsbury's if you want one for work.. Ahem I mean your child for school.
Although its only reception that Ami has started in there is always the need to help her practice her writing at home. Sadly I was pulled into Smiggle and if you haven't been there come with money I was forced to buy all sorts of random bits. We got a little colourful pad and colourful markers to go with it. She also chose a cupcake smelling pencil, a lolly rubber and glow in the dark puzzle. She is over the moon and comes home everyday to her little pad which she locks away from her brothers and writes her name.
So here we are our little round up of goodies from us. Life has changed a lot over the last few weeks and home is somewhat more quieter since. I am so glad she has settled well and is loving every minute although its only early days yet. I am looking forward to many firsts this year and being a blubbering mess at assembly's and school trips.
