I'm freaking out...

My children (ages 4 & 5) are both starting school for the first time next month, and I am a wreck! I just feel so overwhelmed with everything they need, PTA, after school programs and all the other mayhem. Is this normal or am I just being a nut?

  • Yes, mama it is normal to feel this way! My 10 year old is going into the 4th grade ( man I feel old) and my 3 year old is going to start school this year too! I feel as though I am running around mad trying to get school clothes, school supply, waiting to see what teachers they get and what that teacher is going to want for her class room!! It can be nuts...But after school starts everything will fall into place!

    But i ended up pulling him anyways and homeschooling. so ...

  • It is totally normal but like the other mom said, you will get into a routine after a couple of weeks.
