    1. It is, isn’t it? =) Skip Hop have really cute backpacks! My son has a Dino and a Fox, been washed multiple time and they’re still in perfect condition!

  1. I’m thankful that my mom and grandmother decided to take on the tasks of “School supply shopping” this year. This is a good post since most of the schools tend to have the same needs in supplies. Thanks for sharing 😀

    1. Some mums were kind enough to send me their kids’ school supply lists, and comparing them they were very similar =)

    1. My son also received his list a while ago, but I know some schools leave it to the last week (had that happen to me last year, it’s not fun trying to get all the supplies ready in that short amount of time!)
