Back to school with Superdry

It’s almost September which means back to school. The phrase “Back to school” never meant anything to me before, until now. I’m a first time mom and I’ve gone through all the different emotions with having a child. I’ve cried, yelled, laughed, loved and hugged like never before. When you feel like you’re getting the hang of this “Mom thing” it all changes again. So here we are starting school, and with a whole new set of feelings. Now my baby is growing up with new challenges and new successes and I am so thankful to be a part of it all.

 

School for me was exciting. Maybe it was because I was always the ‘new girl’. We moved a lot as a family, with my father’s work we had to move. I was never in the same school for more than 2 years. So change was something I became accustomed to and craved. If we were in a house long enough my sister and I would always ask when we were moving again! We loved it! It wasn’t always easy being the ‘new girl’ and it came with a fare bit of bullying, but it made me stronger and built something within me which I could never replace. I now have no fear of new situations, or meeting new people, or starting new things. I say that’s down all down to being the ‘new girl’.

Matty is almost 5 and with many years of school in front of him, I wanted to write him a letter which he can look back on when he is older.

For this back to school blog post I collaborated Superdry. A brand which is new to my wardrobe! I’ve always been a sucker for a pop of color and their line this season has just that. What a cool and comfy way to start off the school year!
