The First Day of Kindergarten vs. First Day of Every Other Grade = Hysterical MOM TRUTH


I have three kids, and they start school just TWO SHORT DAYS from now! I can hardly wait for my 7th grader and my 4th grader to start, but…I’m feeling pretty sad and apprehensive about my youngest, because he’s going to be a KINDERGARTENER!

I had three, count ’em THREE different friends share the above video from Whoa, Susannah on my timeline on Facebook because everyone knows how I am feeling about my baby boy going off and leaving me. As a work-at-home mom, I must admit, I am relieved to have all three of my kids on the same schedule finally. But since he’s my BABY, and I’m nervous about how he will adapt to all-day school (Will he cooperate? Will he make friends? His social skills are a little iffy).

So—yes, I am nervous about the first day of kindergarten, but I feel a lot better after watching that hilarious video! Oh my goodness! I have to say I think Whoa, Susannah is SPOT ON with this feeling! I think next year I will be dancing a jig when they hit the door! I won’t be going to get a mani-pedi..but at least I’ll get to do my daily work KID FREE!

Thanks for keeping it real, Oh Susannah! You gave me a MUCH NEEDED back-to-school LAUGH!
