Mom Vs The Kindergarten Tag

In case you missed my last post about my son's first day of kindergarten, I'll summarize. I forgot to send him to school with his important bus tag. The tag that kindergartners are supposed to wear around their necks for the first 2 weeks of school. The tag that has the classroom information, their bus information and their home information. When I realized this I stopped what I was doing, I went to the school and I dropped it off in his classroom.

So when I picked my kindergartner up at the bus stop that afternoon, I was expecting him to come off the bus wearing that oh-so-important tag. He wasn't. I asked him where the tag was.

It was in his backpack.

The next morning I had him put it on as we left the house. It was back in his backpack when he got to the bus stop. And it has remained in his backpack all week.

I think the tag may have won this round.

"I'm a big boy, Mom.. I don't need that tag. I know where I'm going." Such a big boy you have!!!! He obviously was ready for Kind.

Hey - as long as the school hasn't come calling, I'd say it was a draw. We're ummm still fighting our own issues. Fingers crossed he' transitioning well to kindergarten!

I had to wear a tag too! Mine had an orange dot on it. I can't remember what that meant, but it was orange.
