Pottery Barn Kid's catalog arrived yesterday. I'm a sucker for their backpacks. Especially the Pre-K ones!
Why? Maybe because "Back-To-School" when I was a kid meant getting a new pair of shoes and some school clothes, but there was no money for extras...
Who knows...but as soon as I saw PB Kid's new Back-To-School catalog with free shipping and then received a "20% off purchase" post card in the same mail, I knew I wouldn't be able to resist a purchase (or five)
With free shipping and 20% off, it sounded like a good "Christmas In July" gift for the school-age grand kids. Little Henry, age 2, just got a new back pack for his birthday last month, so we are down to four.
Waiting to hear what they will choose. I'm probably more excited than they are.
I think Ben and Tucker will pick something in the Star Wars motif.
Lily, age 7 going on 18, responded first of course. She was very thorough with a link to her choice, color of writing for her name and even the font type. Ya gotta love a second grader! Here's her choice of motif:
Purple and aqua pandas...and, please, no rolling ones for her! She's a big girl now, but I can't wait til she grows up to be president so I can show her the picture of the rolling one she adored when she was three.
Olivia at age three and a half, gets no choice in the matter. If she did, it would be something god awful and purrpoyl (purple) and would be lost in a sea of all her other purrpoyl things! Nope. Her mother and I already agreed on this one...
How could we not? I think I might want to wear it myself the next time we visit! They say old age is like a second childhood.
How about you? When you grew up was back-to-school a big deal?Did Sears and Roebuck's or Montgomery Ward's catalogs dictate what you would wear?
Thanks for dropping by!
