It’s back to school and not only does that mean your rugrats will be back to the classroom for eight hours of day, but it means school shopping. Pencils, pens, erasers, sneakers – the list could go on and on. But, before you pile the kids in the car and haul off to your nearest mall, it’s important that you write out your budget.

Many moms I know are quite active in their child’s school activities, extra-currlcular activities and social lives. So as we are approaching Parent-Teacher conferences next week, I’m sure some of them will be well prepared with specific topics to address.
Let’s face it, the amount of time allotted for these meetings just doesn’t cut it. Fifteen minutes to discuss a child’s academic progress and social health just doesn’t cut it, regardless of how well your child is doing.

I knew my kids would eventually get a teacher that we found to be less than pleasant. After all, my oldest is still only in 3rd grade, and I remember many of my own teachers from elementary school who were just downright mean. So the fact that we are now dealing with this reality, I have found myself struggling a few times to keep my composure and remain diplomatic.

Today we picked up my boys’ school supply kits that we ordered through the school earlier in the year. I love the idea of this option because it not only means I don’t have to drag them out in search of supplies but almost everyone has the same looking items, so I don’t have to hear how “Alan’s folders are so much cooler than mine”.
What I love the most though is now that my oldest son is in 3rd grade, an agenda book was included in his kit.

A few months ago I wrote about my mixed emotions over my youngest son going to kindergarten this coming school year. I can’t believe I am already seeing that first day in sight as we are now only a week away from it.
I knew I’d be emotional as this day approached. But I’m even more nervous after just reading that a kindergarten student in another state fell asleep on his bus and went unnoticed until he started to wander the bus company parking lot. What made it worse is that it was a very hot day, and the bus driver didn’t do a walk-through after returning from his route, so this potentially injurious situation could have been avoided.
