Back-to-School Emotions!

10 Sep

20130910-075853.jpgMy daughter started Kindergarten yesterday. We have been so excited about the start of the school year.  I was teary eyed because my baby is growing up so quickly but she was teary eyed because she was going to school with an empty book bag.  We received her teacher assignment last week with a note about school supplies. To her disappointment there wasn’t a list of supplies, instead parents were asked to write a check to the PTA so they can buy supplies in bulk for the school. As a parent, I was relieved that I didn’t have to make a last-minute trip to the store and pick through half empty shelves.  When she headed off to school she asked if she could bring the pencil box case she loves so much, “just in case”. I can’t blame her for being upset. When I was a child, school supply shopping was one of my favorite outings with my mom. For the past couple of weeks, anticipating the standard back-to-school supply list, she wandered Barnes and Noble, Target, and local stores pointing out many supplies she hopes to get for back-to-school. Items included:

Hello Kitty Pencil Case from Bitz Kidz TriBeca:



So she didn’t  feel like she was missing out on the fun experience, we have decided to shop for some supplies for desk at home.

Did you have to buy supplies?  What cool back-to-school stuff did you find?  Did back-to-school shopping make transitioning easier?
