Back To School For Your Boy

Back to School Time is Fun with Cool Clothing and Accessories!


Remember how when you were a kid, summers seemed endless? On the last day of school it was as if you had all the time in the world ahead of you to swim, bike, play ball and so on. I can remember becoming bored a few times, and by the end of the summer, I was excited with the idea of going back to school.  The thing that excited me the most was shopping for backpacks and school clothing. I mean really, getting new school gear, was the highlight of at the end of summer. Sort of marked the summer was officially over and the school was to begin.



 Now, as a mom, it seems like school has just gotten out, and already I have to think about what to buy for my son in order to get him ready to go back school.  It is not even August yet.  He actually goes back to school earlier this year(before Labor Day) which has me scrambling to find great deals on boys' clothing, backpacks, and other school accessories that he might need. It is a good thing that I love to shop! I don't take him with me because he would mostly complain of being bored. I try to do most of my shopping without him or online!

If your son is anything like my son, he has likely outgrown all his clothes from last year, and even if he hasn’t, it’s fun to go back to school in new clothes! You can buy all sorts of boys clothing and accessories from our online boys clothing boutique – dinosaur shirts and hats, pirate rain gear, monster shirts, and so much more!


You’ll probably still have to go to the mall for school supplies like folders, binders, markers and so on, but if you need a new backpack for your boy to stow all that stuff in, our online boys' clothing boutique is a great place to find one. Our boys’ outer space backpacks are perfect for preschoolers and up to first grade. Measuring 12x10x4.5 inches, these backpacks are small enough that they won’t overwhelm a toddler, but big enough to hold books and folders, even an extra sweater and a lunch. And the space illustrations are pretty awesome!


For a bigger boy, the boys’ pirate backpack is perfect. It’s a roomy 14.5x11.5x4.5 inches. As a mom, you’ll appreciate the vinyl exterior and interior that’s so easy to keep clean. And your young buccaneer will feel like the hippest pirate ever, toting this skull-and-crossbones patterned backpack. Of course he wouldn’t want to lose something this cool, so there’s even a tag on the front zipper pocket where he can write his name!


Happy Shopping!

Let me Play

Let him play
Being a mom isn’t easy. It’s a full-time job, 24/7 for at least eighteen years. If your child is a boy, you’ve probably heard it said that they’re a handful when they’re young but they’re easier than girls once they hit their teens. That may or may not be true. What is known to be true, however, is that young boys really can be a handful. You may find that the early years are pretty difficult, but you know what? They’re not all sunshine and rainbows for your boy, either. He needs to play. Allow him to run, jump and explore!

Most young boys are very high-energy and become bored easily. While a girl may be happy playing quietly, boys typically want to run around, bounce on things and make noise. He can get himself into trouble, too – just needing to know what’s on top of that high bookcase and deciding to find out by climbing up the shelves. Give him and outlet and allow him to create. Put a puzzle together, body paint, or help him slay a dragon.

If your little boy is of school age, he may have a lot of pent-up energy from having to sit still for long periods at his desk. Smart moms know that the last thing they should do when he gets home from school is make him do his homework right away. Ideally, he should spend some time outside playing, burning off some energy before he gets down to the brain work. Or he could build things with his Lego, play with action figures, or work on a craft project. There will still be times when his inquisitive nature leads him in directions that might be destructive (racing around the house knocking over lamps and knick-knacks, for example), but with a proactive approach, those incidents can be kept to a minimum. Just be alert to signs of boredom, and use the opportunity to channel his energy in a positive direction.

For your boy, and for you, his childhood years should be happy and stress-free. A boy needs a little special handling, for sure. But even the worst days, the ones where you’re convinced that this little tornado is just never going to wind down, will come to an end eventually. And when he’s all snuggled up in your lap, wanting you to read him a story, that’s when you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that even with all the trials and tribulations, having this little guy in your life is just the best thing ever. Therefore let him play.
