I remember well those last couple of weeks bofore the kids went back to school.
All the rushing around to get just the right clothes.
And the shoes had to be a certain brand and style.
They were not usually too fussy about the paper and notebooks, or many of the other classroom supplies.
As long as they had what was required they were fine.
The book bags were another matter though - even worse than the clothes or shoe shopping.
Color, style, name, size and gadget pockets were a choice that had to made by them alone - my suggestions didn't count here.
But one of the toughtest chores of sending them back to school was the haircuts.
According to them it took too long, could never be scheduled at the right time, and worse of all, they hated how they came out - even if it was the same old regular one they always got.
We learned to get it a couple of weeks before school actually started. That way it would have time to grow a bit and settle in.
My kids have been out of school for years now, but I am betting not much has changed in getting them ready to back with today's generation.
