Today is my first baby's kindergarten open house. I will be busy visiting his little desk and locker and imagining him eating lunch at the seemingly ginormous school cafeteria.
Instead of posting here, I'll leave you with a link to this article from the Boston Globe about soothing first-day of school jitters. In it I admit that I basically outsource the job to the big brother.
It's a good thing the reporter only asked me how I help them deal with their first-day jitters and not mine. They're fine. I'm...well, I'm the mom of a brand-new kindergartner and a brave new preschooler.
A whole new world is opening up for us.
