I always loved that too. Even as a teacher, I get a thrill from brand new crayons, freshly sharpened pencils and the perfectly clean name tags I put on the desks.

Around February, the crayons are all broken, the pencils are all missing and the name tags are either halfway ripped off, scribbled on or (rarely) still perfect. :)

I need help, my baby is starting kindergarten on Wednesday and I don't know why it makes me feel the way I've been feeling as the day gets closer and closer. Sad and anxious but at the same time excited for her.

I just need to let go. Easier said than done.

I remember the feeling. I was excited, hugged her and then went out to my car and cried.

This too shall pass. ;)

It's hard. I was getting choked up on Wednesday when I had to briefly take my daughter in to school. Heck, I was getting choked up yesterday at Target while stocking up on some additional school supplies. I'm sure I'll be a wreck on Tuesday when I put her on the bus for the first time.

I was like that for awhile. Now I look forward to school starting.

I will said that next year when my oldest is a senior, I'll probably feel that same dread sending him off...and the year after that, my daughter will be a senior.

Time does fly. :(

Y'all worry too much.

Sure, my mom was all broke up when she packed me off to kindergarten but when I came home with 4 lunch boxes and $6.50 in other kids lunch money she was as proud as she could be!

LOL! I'm not worried, per se....just a mama. Went through the same thing last year with my oldest. I didn't send my kids to preschool or anything like that, so each of them going to school is a big change. I'm not going to know what to do with myself having both of them gone all day....for a couple of weeks, anyway. Then I'll get myself into a routine and all will be well. My house might actually stay clean for more than 5 minutes at a time, and that's always a bonus!

Only the rich kids had Trapper Keepers. I just had plain old notebooks.

However, since you brought it up I decided to look and see if I could find any of those old notebooks. It seems that the notebooks are gone but I did find some old Playboy's I didn't know I had!!!

I had some weird off-brand of Trapper Keeper. I loved that thing.

How the teachers are dressed is interesting. :)
I can tell you honestly I've never worn a low cut blouse showing off my cleavage. ;)

I never show cleavage at school. However, I learned my lesson one time when I was teaching a group of 5th grade boys and I leaned over in front of one of them to help him with something. He just stared. Oy. How embarrassing. :p Now I always crouch instead of bending. <<< Don't anyone take that out of context. :2razz:
