After you attend your child’s Mother’s Day Out open house, make sure you haven’t “inherited” your child’s name tag. Failure to do so may result in glue on your washer basket, dryer walls, and favorite black shirt.
Don’t assume your child will be as excited as you are to take his/her “first day of school” photo. Be prepared to have him roll his eyes at you – even if he is “only” two. (Funny, he cooperated more last year as a one-year-old.)
It is perfectly acceptable to reward a great first day of school with a trip to the local splash park and Dairy Queen.
