My experience with the first day of school? Nervousness. Anxiety. I still have it today with my youngest, who is now officially a sophomore. Reflecting back my "1st Day of School: The Early Years," I was was a wreck most of the time, while my 4 kids had it much more together. Moms get this more than anyone.
If you have the first day of school nervousness (particularly if they were babies just a few years back), allow me introduce you to Heather who is BOTH a parent and teacher. She verbally holds your hand to let you know, "It's OK." For every season of being a school parent. I include some encouraging excerpts below.
