Mamas and Minis Style: Back To School in Moccs + Giveaway!

Mamas and Minis Style with Minnetonka

I can’t believe how fast my little mini me is growing up right before my eyes. This week, she will be transitioning to the “twos” class (Austin will be switching to the “fours”) and I’m going through all sorts of emotions here. It’s a little bit of a stressful time for US ALL since my kids don’t particularly do well with change, but we will get through it together! For school, I love putting Vivian in dresses (because diaper changes are easier) and comfortable shoes for running and playing. We love Minnetonka for shoes to fit this bill because they are soft, stylish, and especially neutral colors can go with so many different outfits!

My son Austin always takes his blankie to school with him in a backpack and lately Vivian will wonder where her “pack” is. We just got this adorable swan bag and I can’t wait for her to bring it along to school with her each day, only to see what treasures she comes back when I pick her up. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Itโ€™s amazing to think that back then, all of us just starting out, and that we had NO IDEA the adventures ahead of us. Couldnโ€™t even have imagined, right? I adore watching the success youโ€™ve had and the path that youโ€™ve madeโ€ฆ while staying true to your heart. Which is why I know this project will be a success โ€“ itโ€™s not a gimmick, a show, a marketing idea. This is so you, sharing your passion in a way to truly change the lives of others. You, are so great. ๐Ÿ™‚
