No sooner have children broke up from school for the summer holidays are shops stocking back to school items, I for one use to hate it the constant reminder of school. Although I did like having a load of new clothes for the new term and a bag full of new stationery. These days as I am getting older and more and more of my friends on Facebook have children who are nearing school age and they are talking about how pricey it is when you have children starting school and you need to go out and buy full school uniforms.
I know Thomas has only just turned 2 and when I think about how quick the last two years have gone it makes me a little sad when I think that before I know it he will be nearing school age and I will be one of those parents flapping around during the summer holidays trying to get Thomas’s school uniform ready for his very first day in reception. When I think about that is leaves me with a sinking feeling in my tummy, why does my baby have to get big?
A few days ago I saw a tweet from a fellow blogger who had just been and bought a school uniform for her two children ready for the new school term and it cost her £300! I just can’t believe how expensive it can be. When it is eventually my time to buy Thomas’s school uniform I will definitely shop around to find the best quality school uniform that is also good value for money. I mean just look at Asda they have good quality uniforms for really reasonable prices and they even come with 100 day money back guarantee so they obviously believe in the quality of their clothing. I really do hate the thought of having to spend over £100 on a school uniform that when your children are growing might not even last a term! It just seems silly that you need to spend excessive amounts of money on clothes just for school. I would much rather spend more money on clothing for Thomas that he can wear every day.
Will you be buying your childs first uniform this summer?
