Prepping for Preschool

Ready for preschool!
Will survived his first week of preschool! Woo-hoo!

Of course there's been a bit of adjustment -- mainly getting to know his new teachers and getting used to more structure -- but it was nice walking in and seeing him sit with a group of kids who were listening to show and tell.

He's such a big boy now!

Last weekend was our time to prep for this new adventure. I took Will to get his hair cut at the adorable Tipperary kids' salon in Beverly Hills. They're so nice there and have a ton of toys to distract kids from the actual haircut. Kids also get a small toy after their cut, and Will really looks forward to that!

We found out about Tipperary, which recently relocated to Robertson Boulevard, after our regular salon, The Yellow Balloon in Westwood, sadly closed. Will loves it. The two stylists we've had have been so nice and accommodating. They even have a little car that smaller children can sit in during cuts.

Will's cut, which involved clippers on the sides and scissors on top, was $35. The service is great, the salon is cheery, and the stylists really take their time and have a positive attitude with the kids, so it's definitely worth it.

I asked for the shortest hair possible!

Next we headed down to Orange County to visit The Land of Nod store at South Coast Plaza (hoping Land of Nod will makes its way to Los Angeles soon!).

Will had seen a blue whale backpack and blue lunchboxes in the store's catalog, and he had his sights set on having them. Plus, I wanted to make this transition easier and special.

The store at South Coast Plaza is really cute and has a ton of furniture, toys and accessories.

Will was eager to carry his preschool finds at The Land of Nod.
Will picked out this backpack and this lunchbox.

And not only did we stop for a pizza lunch at the mall, Will also got to ride on this adorable carousel while showing off his cute new haircut (which is perfect for these steamy summer months)!
