Middle School Orientation | Mommy and Me Monday | 424th ed


This kid growing up thing is hard. We’ve had discussions about school and it being a scary place and it’s something I never thought I’d have to talk about. And now, we are getting ready for middle school. I’m certain that she just said “mama” for the first time like last week.

But, here we are learning about bell schedules, tardies, lockers, connections (aka electives that you don’t actually get to elect), no backpacks and more. I’m not ready for this. And, she’s quite nervous about it, too.

But, we did our orientation and went and played a couple instruments. She’s trying to decide if she’s an orchestra kid, a band kid or a chorus kid. I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up, so I hope she’s better at deciding!

After our orientation, we had a nice dinner, just the two of us. And (for when you come back and read this you stinker), she thought she was grown and ordered herself a soda before she even asked me. I let it slide because if this is the only middle school challenge we have, I’ll take it!

Of course, B is making a cameo because I can’t not with this girl. She’s the most diva-ist 4 year old diva…and I’m pretty sure she knows it. So, I’m going to embrace this little diva because she’ll be in middle school in 7 short years and I’m not ready!

    Very cute diva.
    If the almost middle schooler takes after her grandma’s side she will choose band. We were all band geeks.

    I remember the days of taking my boys to the middle school orientation! As a teacher, I also get the opportunity to walking our current 5th graders over to the local middle school for a visit. It is such a bog transition for them.
