  • Here in GA is Sept 1, no exceptions! I was like you, pregnant due sept 2 and worried. my mom was like don't worry, it's 5 years in the future...it'll change or you can ask for an exception. didn't happen. she was born sept 5th and now just started 5th grade even though she will be 11 soon.

    on a side note, that extra year is not a big difference. be thankful your LO will get to spend that extra time at home with you.

  • In Illinois it's September 1st. Kinda sucks for me because I have one born Oct. 7th and one born Sept. 30th. So Neither of my kids are going to school till they're almost 6. :(
