Good luck to all of the FYOSers.
I can tell that this is my 2nd child & my relatively uncomplicated (non-2e) kid, as I am very chill about his start on Friday (and actually quite excited to finally have both kids in school full time!
Still, I can appreciate what a big thing this is in a child's life. Can you guys still remember your first day of school? I sure can, down to my young, stylish teacher in 1973 who had a B-52s-like beehive, knee high vinyl boots, and a rad plaid dress!
Ahhhh! DD starts tomorrow! Slightly freaked out. Went to the library today and got cross examined by librarian who couldn't believe that she had read the books on her book list herself as they are designed for kids in 3/4 grade.
I wish librarians & teachers wouldn't do that
(as if you were making up stuff about her reading abilities!) It makes me wonder how much experience they have or how high their antennaes are if they've never encountered or even heard of an advanced reader!
