Ahhhhhhh back to school!!!! Finally my blog life can go back to normal! So sorry for being a total spam bot the last week and a half :-/ Promise I'm not a sell out!!!! I've had my daughter home with me in between summer and fall school sessions & lets just say I don't know how you other work at home moms with kiddos running lose do it! I seriously cannot get any creative work done with my 3 year old here thinking she runs the show, so creativity took the back burner the last 12 days & I have just been posting anything with deadlines.
Let's just say I definitely enjoyed spending quality time with my lil'princess. So nice to spend days at the time chillen poolside with my mini me, but I'm definitely glad to be back! So many fabulous ideas have been brainstorming inside my head and I'm totally ready to rock out some fabulosity this fall! 9am last Thursday came at perfect time! Creative juices are definitely flowing.
The best part of this whole back to school thingy was definitely all the shopping that we did! If you're on Periscope, (@kourtneelynne *Follow Me If You Aren't*) you probably saw my scope on how ridiculously over the top I like to dress my daughter. Sorry not sorry always comes to mind when I think about this because, yes I know it is RIDICULOUS, make fun if you want, I even laugh at myself ;-) permission to laugh away!!!! but I have one and only one child, so if it's a Betsy Johnson backpack and a custom back to school dress that I feel is necessary, then that's what we get. Some people live threw there kiddos threw activities and sports. Me? It definitely threw fashion.
Unfortunately, the universe likes to pay funny games! Always keeping me on my toes. Since I went over the top with my daughters outfit, my daughter just had to put her own touch on it & transform her totally cute outfit into a Wizzard of Oz tribute lol.... We were suppose to be shopping for plain black, match everything shoes & this is what the 3 year old demanded to rock on her first day of school! Ruby red slippers....For a kiddo who barley speaks due to a speech delay, she definitely has opinions & she's definitely a shoe girl. Atleast her dress has red in it right?!?! Trying to find the positive ;-)Things could always be worse right?
Since my daughter did buy ruby red slippers that she's totally obsessed with wearing, we might of had to shop for some other red pieces for her wardrobe so we could avoid as many, "no you can't wear those shoes with that outfit" arguments as possible!!!! My hubby loves shopping more than anyone I know & I think my daughter and I officially made him wish shopping didn't exist lol.
Isn't my princess a cutie?!?! Proud to say the dress was the hit of the school!!! While waiting for school to start, I swear we had every teacher that walked by give complements on the dress :) Being the over the top fashion parent that I am, that totally made my week.
Only bad thing is my child refuses to wear her backpack. I'm hoping afew days into school and seeing other kids wearing there's that she will want to eventually give it a wear.
I happened to get to the school just early enough to catch a glimpse of the kiddos walking to the buses & pick-up!!! Made me happy to see my daughter actually following directions from a distance. That has always been something I wondered. If she listens to others when I'm not around? With her speech delay and partial communication with people this totally made my day to see this & kind of put some fears of mine at ease. So funny how one simple thing such as this can calm so many nerves. As you can see, still no backpack wearing lol... She had her own personal backpack carrier -_-
This might be the cutest idea of all times!!!! A notebook stays in your kiddos backpack so you have constant communication with your child's teacher! Since she goes to a public school preschool so she can receive speech services threw the school district, it's not as easy to talk to teachers like it is in a private preschool or daycare. I'm loving that if I have any questions or concerns, since my daughter doesn't have the verbal to tell me herself, the answer to whatever it is in wonder is just afew hours away! I think all preschool kids should be sent home with a notebook like this! To me this is the most brilliant idea ever.
How was your kiddos first day back? If they haven't yet returned, are they scared? Excited? Would love to hear :)

We are going back to school tomorrow too, I think both my son and I are glad he will get a break from all my rules. We were uniforms at school in South Africa Salk the shopping was for new school shoes and a school bag. It was interesting though to see what you had to get. Thanks

Oh my gosh! She is absolutely lovely! And those shoes remind of me Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz!
9/7/2015 10:12:47 pm
I hadn't thought of that. They do look like the slippers from Wizard of Oz, don't they? Good catch!
9/7/2015 03:57:24 pm
That dress is too cute but I was so drawn to her backpack! Now I want to get a purse just like that.
9/7/2015 04:50:46 pm
Such a cute outfit! Going back to school is stressful for parents and kids. Hope she has fun.
9/7/2015 09:24:22 pm
Oh RUBY SLIPPERS every lil princess needs a pair of those! I'll have some too haha. I love the traveling notes from the teacher! That must be a lot of work for her for every kid!
9/7/2015 10:04:54 pm
I know how it feels to not be able to get some work done because of the kids. You just have to work around it somehow. But, anyway, she looks really cute in her little red slippers.
9/7/2015 10:22:22 pm
They sure do have a mind of their own!
9/7/2015 11:47:03 pm
Her outfit is as cute as her. It's nice that she had fun on her first day!
9/8/2015 12:16:35 am
She is adorable. I love how they start developing their own since of style at a young age. My daughter did the same thing. She also loved wearing a ponytail that pulled just her bangs up. It almost looked like a unicorn. Lol I will warn you the teen years get even more expensive.

Her outfit is adorable, but those ruby red glittery shoes are just plain EVERYTHING! (I was a former Special Ed Teacher and I used to send notes to parents via the students notebooks too! :)
9/8/2015 02:57:04 am
I love her outfit and she's really cute. I wish my niece would like her, she enjoying the first class
9/8/2015 04:31:17 am
I don't have little ones anymore but I did remember my daughter's first day in school. I guess I was more nervous than her. I think your daughter is so cute in her first day of school outfit!
9/8/2015 06:07:56 am
She looks so adorable in that outfit. Very nice you got a note about her day.
9/8/2015 07:23:24 am
Aw, she is super cute and adorable. The outfit suits her and I super love her red shoes.
9/8/2015 08:57:45 am
Awww, she is a dolly! The note from the teacher is so sweet, makes me teary eyed.
9/8/2015 09:29:46 am
Capri starts her first day of pre-k tomorrow and I feel like I am going to be a wreck! She is super excited though. It is so nice that your teacher wrote that note. I hope Capri's does the same!! Congrats to you for letting her go and good luck to her in the future!! <3 Christine, The Choosy Mommy, www.choosykids.blogspot.com

Your daughter is such a cutie. Lots of adjustments for her and for you too now that it's already BACK TO SCHOOL season!

Your princess is gorgeous! I love her dress. My daughter is only starting school next year and I'm sure I will be crying...
9/8/2015 02:33:14 pm
School started here the first week in August!! It is hard to believe that our lil man has been in kindergarten for almost a month already! BTW...her outfit was just amazing!!
9/8/2015 02:57:00 pm
Aw I bet she is going to have a great year. It's bittersweet when they go back for me, but I know they need the structure. :)
9/8/2015 05:08:23 pm
Hahaha! This is exactly how I felt when school started back up for my girls! FREEDOM!! Well, for a few hours at least! Your daughter's outfit is super cute tho! Glad she had a good first day!
9/8/2015 06:09:41 pm
What a cutie! Her outfit is just too adorable for words. My mom's a teacher and today was the first day of school here in Chicago <3
9/8/2015 07:44:59 pm
Oh my gosh that dress and those shoes!!! Sounds like she had an awesome time at school how exciting!
9/8/2015 08:22:03 pm
She looks adorable! Now that your blogging is back to normal, mine is gonna be spammy lol. You'll see in my post that I am back to preschool teaching! I wish your little one was in my class!
9/8/2015 08:55:37 pm
Just stumbled upon your blog. Easy, interesting reads! Will be checking back often. As everyone before me already said: your daughter is precious.
9/8/2015 10:09:55 pm
Back to school is a great time of year for parents. Except when we see the list of stuff kids need to go back... lol
9/8/2015 11:46:53 pm
The red shoes looks cool. I think that's one of the exciting things when kids get back to school. They get new stuff and they meet old friends.
9/9/2015 12:02:18 am
She looks absolutely darling. Best back to school outfit I have ever seen.
9/9/2015 09:36:54 pm
OK she is ADORABLE! I love that little outfit and the red shoes and the backpack with the bow! Adorable!!!
9/9/2015 10:49:01 pm
Awww what a cutie. =) My kiddos went back to school last week and my youngest started this week, so all 5 of them are in school this year.
9/10/2015 02:40:37 am
All 3 of my kids were loving school until my middle schooler broke his arm. Now it's kinda hard with just one arm to carry everything. Love those ruby slippers! My teenager lived in them when she was little. I had to buy a new pair every time she outgrew them.
9/10/2015 07:49:29 pm
She's definitely a little cutie! This is the first year I haven't had a child going back to school. Both of my girls have graduated now so no more back to school for me!
I literally have never seen a better back to school outfit before. No word of a lie. I love that she chose the ruby red slippers but I can see my daughter wanting to wear those endlessly! PS my highlight the other day was you saying her last year's teacher said she's dressed to the nines!!! In terms of the back pack, see about letting her pack it with toys sometimes. That seems to work with my daughter...
9/10/2015 10:07:20 pm
That really is the cutest lil dress I've ever seen! She's so adorable, hope she's having fun at school! :)
9/14/2015 10:50:08 pm
Your little daughter is really adorable!! I love her outfit for back to school. I like her little cutie shoes.
9/15/2015 10:31:34 pm
Love your little girlies first day of school outfit, she looks adorable! I've also just been posting "deadline" due posts, blogging can be such a busy, but fun job! :)
