Wells recently picked out a matching pair of pajamas for us and it melts my heart to see her so excited to look just like me. She's also a huge fan of being old enough to wear the grown up style jammies as she refers to this button up set. I feel like most of the time I'm wishing time would slow down but
recently the fun I've been having with my best girl leaves me
excited about the kind of relationship we'll have as she grows.
This little bug will be five on her next Birthday which pretty much blows my mind. The memories we're making now are beginning to be the ones she'll remember forever. It's hard to believe that for so long I was juggling babies and diapers and snacks while we were just trying to make it through the day and now we've landed smack dab into the swiftness of childhood. Speaking of which, we've got lots of big decisions coming up on the horizon. The Big K is the biggest on our minds. With such a late summer Birthday we're weighing the pro's and con's of doing a Junior Kindergarten in the fall. So many emotions tied to that one. I'm thankful Tagg has a winter Birthday so we only have to make this decision once. He'll turn five and then he'll go to Kindergarten. Easy enough.
Our preschool offers two wonderful JK's; a traditional half-day program and one that extends to 2pm second semester. I don't worry so much that Wells can't handle real Kindergarten because I know she can. She's bright and thoughtful and thrives on schedules and responsibility. It's the middle and high school years that I'm worried about. Being barely 18 as she enters a world full of adults forever. I just think it might be something wonderful to gift her one more year to be little. But we'll see. There are so many factors at play and thankfully there really isn't a wrong answer. If she goes, she'll be amazing and if she waits she'll be amazing. It's just a question of timing.
These adorable and comfy pajamas (kids/womens) are from Malabar Bay and because I know you love these as much as I do they've graciously offered everyone 25% off site-wide with the Promo Code: JuliaRyanCreates so you can pick out some cute PJ's or something else pretty as well! In addition to their lounge wear I love their scarves and tunics as well.
They're really soft but sturdy and I love how well these held up in the wash, literally no shrinking which is important for someone on the taller side like me. For size reference, Wells wears a size 5 or 6 and is in a size 6 here and I'm in an adult small. There is some wiggle room on the bottom because of the tie waist in the womens pants but the top is a slender fit. I'd say size up for girls for sure. Also, they're not at all translucent even with the white background so I'd feel comfortable rocking these in my kitchen with colored panties and no bra. That's pretty important.
Thank you to Malabar Bay for allowing my sweet girl to pick out a pair of "grown up girl" pajamas and for gifting us a second matching set for her mama.
