Back to school?

My DD is going back to school today. She is excited about going to third grade. Me, I had the dreded night before school dream. lol. I drempt my DD had a full mane of hairy legs. haha. I mean like silky 3 inch long hairs. I suppose it stems from me going into 6th grade and being teased about not shaving my legs. Up until then I didn't need to. DD is younger but her legs are already very hairy so I worry she'll be teased about that. She's not interested in shaving though. Are your kids back to school yet?

  • I don't have concerns over her education. I know she does her best. The teachers are great. And she's very smart. She'll be fine.

  • My kids go back tomorrow. We're going to the "sneak-a-peek" to meet their teachers today. My older daughter goes into 3rd grade too!
    As far as your daughter goes, I wouldn't worry about her leg hair at all unless she brings it up. Hopefully no one will be paying much attention to her legs, lol. Best of luck to her!

  • I wouldn't let it worry me, if you stay calm she will too, just reassure her that she is beautiful and that no one will make a big deal out of it if she doesn't....
