August is here and school season is zooming closer every day! I will have a preschooler, a Kindergartener and a…. 20th grader heading off to school this year (yes, my husband is back in school for his phd). So, today I am sharing all kinds of fun and Stylish Backpacks for young and old to help make your Back to School shopping just a little bit easier because if you are like me… come August life is getting hectic and summer is starting to feel long. We could all use a little help!
Now, here is the exact conversation I had with my Kindergarten daughter just a week ago.
Daughter : “Mama, I want that backpack in Target that had glitter, rainbows, butterflies, Hello Kitty dancing along the front and the free pair of headphones that came with it.”
Me : “Hmmm… oh yes. That was definitely a fun backpack, wasn’t it? Hey, how about Mama picks out some REALLY cool backpacks online and then from alllllllll the ones I pick, you can get your very favorite one!!”
Daughter : “Oh wow! Yes, yes, yes!”
Ok, I may be the worst parent out there. I don’t let my kids sport their favorite disney character on their backpacks. Okay, I said it out loud. I have absolutely no qualms with those parents who do indulge their kids, but I just can’t bring my design heart to do it. Sometimes you have to pick your battles and if a Paw Patrol or an Elsa backpack bring that much joy to them, it’s worth it. For whatever reason, I just can’t go there… I may be the worst or the best – your choice! As my kids get older, I will start to let them pick these types of choices, but for now, while they are young… they pick from my choices.
Onto the highly anticipated Stylish Backpacks.
