I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’gosh. I received an OshKosh B’gosh gift card to purchase product and to thank me for my participation
I’m still working hard to focus on what matters this holiday season (family and friends) and avoid what doesn’t (over scheduling and overspending). I am working on making lots of special memories this Christmas.
But, guys. It’s hard. Mostly because of this duder.
I mean, could you die? I just want to buy this little train man all of the things.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday just about did me in. But, Ryan talked me down from the ledge and I managed to get all of my shopping done online without totally breaking the bank or increasing my stress level.
Bonus: Kid is going to go insane on Christmas morning. (Can. Not. Wait.)
I tried to focus on a mix of practical items and fun items. But, I also want to make sure that everything we spend money on has some longevity. I don’t want to be throwing out toys that have broken on the day after Christmas.
And since Henry is officially needing to go up a size in clothes for winter, I also used my shopping time to pick up some great staples for the holiday season and beyond – from OshKosh B’Gosh.
While you’d think a two-year-old doesn’t care about clothes, my little guy has definite opinions on clothing.
Mostly, he insists on trains. All the trains, all the time. So I call everything his “train shirt.” Even if it doesn’t have a train on it. I’m pretty tricky. Look! This shirt has buttons and stripes – it’s a TRAIN MAN SHIRT.
We have at least three pairs of OshKosh B’Gosh stripe overalls and striped pants. Several were hand-me-downs and are still going strong. This means they can be on a rotation for the wash without Henry losing his mind.
If there’s any doubt that we’ve worn lots of these overalls, the proof is in the photos. (Sob! He’s getting so stinkin’ big. Make it stop.)
But, I also went a bit beyond the overalls. I know exactly the clothes that will pass Henry’s inspection – soft clothes, train clothes, and blue and green clothes. And they also have to pass this mom’s inspection – good quality and not too character-y. 😉 I also prefer all of his clothes to mix and match well, which makes it easy to get ready.
Here are a few of the things I picked up for Henry for the holiday season and to last him through winter. (Most are for now, but I saved a few things for Christmas that I know he’ll be excited about.)
Fleece pants in grey and Fleece pants in navy (the best, softest, thickest pants for kids)
Quarter-zip fleece cozie in plaid and Quarter-zip fleece cozie in green
Hickory stripe overall
Train graphic tee (you should have seen Henry’s face when I pulled this out of his drawer)
Colorblock striped jersey pullover
Truck graphic tee
Striped thermal shirt
