My friend Jaqueline survived her daughter’s first day of kindergarten … barely. She’d lived through several crying spells over the last few days and major tears the night before the first day of school—hers, not her daughter’s. Before they left for school on that first morning, her daughter pulled her aside. “Mommy, I’ll let you walk me in this morning, but that’s it. You can’t do it tomorrow or any other day. All right?”

Anyone else want to share their first day of school experience? Please do so in the comment section below!
