A friend shared a neat thing with me that I thought might be "blog worthy".
At her child's school, they host something called a "Ya-Hoo or Boo Hoo" get together.
After parents drop off their kids on the first day of school, they are invited to the gymnasium -- where they enjoy refreshments .... and subsequently share in celebration OR shed some tears together.
There's a "YA-HOO" corner, and a "BOO HOO" corner, depending upon your first day of school feelings.
I'll be honest -- I'm of the YA-HOO persuasion. I've always been excited and happy (deliriously happy, even) to send the kids off to school ...... and if I'm really honest, some of that is selfishly based.
Sure, there's a tinge of "oh, my baby's growing up"..... but it's quickly followed by a "SEE YA", and my subsequently skipping to the car -- ALONE.
So.....what about you? Which corner would you migrate to? Are you doing a joy jump like the overalled lady above, or doing an ugly cry like our "friend" to the right, on the first day of school?
