We took Theo to M&S yesterday for school uniform.
I can't believe he starts school in September! The past four years have just flown by! We've had to buy trousers for 3yr old and they're still too long. Just hoping he doesn't have a growth spurt between now and September otherwise we'll have to go and buy it all again. At least they've got a 2 for 3 offer on school clothes at the moment so we saved some money. We bought a couple of pairs of trousers for 4yr old too so there's no mad dash to the shops when he does grow out of the smaller ones.
I can't believe how much it's all costing though, just to send him to school. School logo polo shirts and sweaters, trousers, shoes, socks, shorts and white polo shirts for P.E. In total I think we've spent about £150 already! Granted we've bought 5 sets of everything except shoes and P.E. kit because I'm not expecting to get more than 1 wear out of each item before they need washing.
That's all basic stuff though. Did you know that M&S sell school blazers with an ipod control panel built into the inside lapel? Talk about excessive. I thought ipods and stuff like that weren't allowed in schools anyway? My nieces and nephews are certainly not allowed to take anything like that into school.
Anyway rant over. Theo is all kitted out so don't have to worry about survive the mad uniform rush in the holidays and I'm sure he'll look very smart, at least when he gets to school, probably not so much by the time he comes home lol.
Check back in September and I'll post a photo of him all dressed up.
