Oh, the places you’ll go – a typical school day

This year, Asda & George are working with Dr Seuss – championing the favourite line, ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go’ and those special, everyday moments a child and their uniform goes through.

With two children now in school and needing to wear uniforms it has not only increased my washing pile weekly but increased my need to keep up with this never ending pile and I’ve realised just how messy my children are!

At the beginning of term, I had hoped that having 4 T-Shirts each for the children would be enough, 2 pairs of trousers for Harry and 2 dresses for Emmy, and they have 2 jumpers/cardigans each…….What was I thinking?

My washing machine is currently on the blink so a wash takes forever as it stops mid-cycle and often I need to start it again, and while I thought Emmy could wear a dress for 2 days and then I’d wash it swapping over for the other it hasn’t been the case.

Now it must be the school environment at lunch times as she is never this messy at home but I can 90% of the time guess what she has had for lunch as she’s wearing it – playtimes are too much fun to miss I guess so it seems that lunch is shovelled in!

Thankfully they are both wearing uniform from the ASDA George which offers a high quality range of hi tech items, including everything from micro fresh shoes to avoid odour, reinforced knees, non-iron shirts & stay bright / white colour enhancers, to stain resistant Teflon trousers and blazers. Outfits are available from just £7.50, with a full 100 day guarantee.

These uniforms have survived a vigorous testing from both children, been washed almost daily and I am yet to iron them as I hate ironing – if removed from the washing machine and hung straight away to dry they are fine to wear without ironing.

Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

The kids are huge fans of Dr. Seuss and find the books hilarious.  We used this story to think about all the places and things the kids get up to on a typical school day wearing their uniforms.

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

So far this uniform has kept its shape and colour, despite all the wear and tear and washing it has to go through.
