Ugh, this is a hard day for me. Our son begins his first day of middle school today. Forget boohoo breakfast…I need a FREE happy hour, stat! I need somewhere to go and cry it out with other sixth grade moms because our babies are no longer babies. Middle School is rough, y’all. It’s that weird transition between a kid and a teenager. Middle schoolers are awkward, going through hormonal changes, and learning about topics that, well, parents aren’t ready for their kids to learn about…..keep reading for free middle school signs printables too.
I’m not ready for the first day of middle school!
You see, J didn’t have the traditional “first day of Kindergarten” experience because he skipped K and went directly to 1st grade at age 5. There was no Boohoo breakfast for first-grade parents, so I cried at home, alone. I was lucky enough to stay home with both boys and school them, which helped them test right into first-grade. So you guessed it – no Boohoo breakfast for my other son either.
J turned 10 years old just a few months ago and hasn’t had his growth spurt yet, so he’ll most likely be the smallest sixth-grader at the school. I know, I know – I’m getting ahead of myself, but isn’t a parents job to worry? Yea, I’m worrying myself right into a box of hair dye! Speaking of, I might as well call my stylist and set up a regular maintenance job NOW because this is the beginning of the end of my natural brown hair.
See why I need that happy hour? And I know I’m not alone. There’s plenty of other moms that understand my pain, right?! That’s why we should have a happy hour for middle school parents. We need to cry it out, give each other pep talks, and then put on our big girl panties because these next three years are going to fly by! We’ll blink and our kids will be off to high school before we know it. Then we’ll really be done for!
So, because I’m trying to find some comic relief here, I created these first day of middle school signs for parents and their children. Simply click the picture below to grab your FREE printables!
