The First Report Card

I cannot be the only one…who finds them self disenchanted with their experience as a newbie Mama to public elementary school.  I have a variety of different reasons for my less than enthused feelings, one is the fact that the principle has already called me at work, got me really worried, and then dismissed the whole point of the call as "nothing really," and now I can add the first report card to my kindergarten dismay.

The impression I am making with that…

Preschool Readiness

Shifting from preschool to kindergarten can be disturbing for some parents. You’ll want to make sure that your child is ready to make this transition before enrolling him.

‘How do I know if my child is ready for Kindergarten?’ this would be you first question with yourself on this occasion.

As no two children are the same, no child’s aptitude will be measured against that of another. There is no formula, no chart; there is, however, a set of guiding principles…

Ah...Monday Monday

I cannot be the only one....whose family has an allergic reaction to Monday mornings, although our allergies aren't sniffy noses or red eyes, rather they manifest themselves as moans, groans, and stomach aches that appear mysteriously.  In the midst of all this Monday morning agony there are shoes and socks to find, lunch boxes and juice boxes to pack, and car keys forgotten on the hook by the door all keeping us from getting a move on.…

Kissing Kindergartners?

I cannot be the only one....who is shocked by some of the things my son tells me that is going on amongst his group of kindergarten friends. Usually it is age appropriate, breaking crayons in half to prove their strength or collecting broken pencils found of the playground, but last night he told me something I found…

7 Must-Dos Before School Starts

Back-to-school time is a busy time.  These tips will help ensure a successful transition!

This back-to-school time is a special one for me. Our oldest child is starting Kindergarten. While I have spent years talking to parents about how to help them get their children ready for school, this year, I am living it right along with millions of other parents.  

I find myself feeling excited, sad, scared, worried, eager, and confused. Can you relate to any of that?  I am…

How to be a Bad (Good) Mom!

What a Mom will do nowadays to help support and raise a child is much different than in years past when all one had to do was feed and diaper a child. The rest was just left to chance. It occurred to me this week as we are preparing (at my house) for ACT prep testing that there may be many of you who have not been down this road yet. As parents we must pick the right pre-preschool. This sets the whole education resume. One cannot have a bad Pre preschool experience otherwise it is homeless,…

New Kindergartners Day brings on wave of nostalgia - or is it more like envy?

Timmy the Timberwolf should have tipped me off.

Timmy is the mascot for our elementary school, and he was out the other morning at the front door of the school, smiling and waving in his furry costume. I was hurrying back to my car, wondering why the parking lot was so…

Where has the time gone? How do you prepare for kindergarten?

I am constantly amazed at how fast time is flying by. Especially now that I have children. It is incredibly hard for me because my oldest son will be registering for kindergarten soon...Where has the time gone? It was not too long ago that I was up all night with him just about every night for two years and working at a job outside of the home. How I wished for some rest...Then it happened, the night his new baby brother came home from the hospital (which happened to be my oldest…

The Golden Rule…

I’m no stranger to the wonderful world of Kindergarten. This is my fourth foray in to the realm of refrigerator art, trips to the farm, & agonizingly annoying Letterland characters. And as many of you know, I have not taken kindly to having to send my last wee baby off to school this fall. Aside from the obvious reasons that any mother can relate to, there is another, far more compelling, reason as to why I was loathe to put her in the hands of the educational system. Those bastards…

The Angry Kindergartner

Recently my kindergarten son, James, was angry with me. To be honest, I can’t even remember why. What I do remember is that he wrote me two notes to let me know how he felt.…
