  • I would feel just horrible! Now, I'm going to be paranoid, since my oldest starts Kindergarten this year.

  • Sorry 3libras. DS started 1st grade this morning and I was just thinking how much that would suck.

  • Thanks ALOT!!!!! I started having nightmares about her not being ready on time (refusing to put on shoes, comb hair etc). I'm now going to be in the paranoid boat with 3libras! :P

  • Oh, I know ^^^. We've already got the first 3 days outfits picked out (and we don't start til the 27th). I'm going to try to get her to decide more before school starts.

  • She was in all day prek at a regular school (PreK-5th grade) last year so I'm not as bad as I was last year at this time. I'm just trying to think of everything and anything that can go wrong.

    I did not for once second think about us oversleeping!! EEEEK! LMBO!

  • lol, yeah that would suck! i think i'll be alright, here the Kindergarteners go one day before the other grades to get accustomed to the building and the schedule so i'm glad i'll have that 1st day to just devote to my middle dd and then the next day is gonna kill us getting both my girls ready and maybe my son up early too! :P

  • that would suck, but this is a time my anxiety issues come in handy. i never oversleep b/c i rarely sleep the night before something like that. tomorrow i find out if DD is in morning or afternoon hoping on afternoon so this very thing cant happen!

  • I spent the night before DS first day of kindy in the emergency room. I was being told I had leukemia (cause my white count was duh I have the flu), and that if i signed out AMA I probably wouldn't make it to the morning. I decided to risk it (10 yrs ago).
