Have you considered encouraging her to take up cheerleading????? It is So.Much.Fun!!! Be sure to start her as early as you can, like NOW. Try outs can be really competitive you know? -Good Luck. HTH

I can see him picking it up from other kids. I can see him even picking it up from the teachers. Confession. I make funny faces at babies in public places when they seem bored and are getting fretful. If I see a mom in the grocery store trying to get through the checkout...

I mean, like I said, it would be nice if everyone worried about that kind of stuff for our convenience so that we would never be put in the situation of our child being given something we don;t want them to have or could even kill them like a peanut m&m for a child with peanut allergies. But how can you make everyone care? How can you make everyone ask...

I mean, it was a lollipop not crack you know? I guess my opinion may not be as popular because on occasion we veg out with treats like that. I would have said "they are too young, but thank you so much for thinking of us" or something like that. I wouldn't have been offended or...

Cross country mail gets lost a lot right?

I think the...

There is def not a supply list available for K until the first day of class. That is what they told us in a letter they sent us at the beginning of summer. All the other grades got a letter telling them what they need to buy, but for SOME reason they make K wait : Thanks for all of the replies!!!

ESPECIALLY considering the lack of community support and information available to the Mother Bears who would LIKE to relactate but feel like it isn't 'normal'. Animals can feel/sense peer pressure just like humans can, and if they don't see other Polar bears relactating then they...

They sent a letter weeks ago telling us to 'hold off on buying school supplies' because they would 'provide a list of what you need to buy'...
Thanks for the responses. I am frustrated because all the other grades get the list ahead of time, except kindy. It just seems weird to me...why do we have to wait?? Anyway, I like the advice about getting the basics. I suppose I could even save the receipts and return anything that isn't on the list if it really added up. And I just realized that my first child is getting ready to start Kindergarten : I am going back to school shopping but I AM THE ONE PAYING...
