Last week we received a packet of information from Ari's new school.

That's right.  He's starting pre-school in September! 

There was a ton of information in the packet.  He's in the "Orange room" with 8 other toddlers and 2 teachers.   There's a parent committee, after school activities, parent-teacher conferences, curriculum, and school policies.  Reading through the packet filled me with anxiety and back-to-school jitters. 

There's so much to get accomplished in the next few weeks.

First, there are a lot of things I need to buy:

A new school wardrobe,
Something special to wear on day 1 (sporty? preppy? jeans?), and of course,
A new bag to carry all of the school stuff.

Second, there are a bunch of things to do:

Get a dental cleaning, and
a hair trim (it's growing so fast!), and
read books on going to school for the first time.

Finally, there are so many tbd's:

What will everyone be like?
Will they become friends?
Are they going to be nice? 
Is a dose of Ativan necessary on day 1?
What will the separation anxiety be like?
For how long will there be tears?

Sheesh!  There's just so much to do to prepare me for the first day of school.

Good thing Ari is so easy...


As life continues to feel more and more "normal", I'm going to attempt to go back to the blog I used to write BC (before cancer).  Yes, I'll give the periodic health update and I'm sure there will be cancer talk, but I'm going to try to make this more about the kids and less about the cancer.
