I definitely "got by with a little help from my friends." A group of first-time kindergarten moms went to breakfast together after drop-off on the first day of school, which provided much-needed group therapy for us all.
And when I got home, there was a gift bag sitting on my doorstep. Though unsigned, it had all the markings of my awesome, thoughtful friend, Jen, so I knew right away that she was my Hang In There Fairy. I will be doing something similar to boost the spirits of kindergarten mom friends soon!
The note reads:
Cry for 6 minutes
Open whichever of these will help the most
It's a 9 am no judgement zone!
Thank you again, dear Jen!
