One really neurotic mom who is questioning every decision about PTA, teacher gifts, volunteering, what time to be at school, what time to pick up from school, can her baby walk down the hall by himself, can he pick out the right library books, can he find his lunch box, what do I send for snack time, did I send the right pencils/construction paper/crayons/folders/paint, what the other baby will do while her brother is gone all day, will he like kindergarten, will I be able to help him get homework done, will he have lots of homework, will he learn to read, will the teacher like him, more importantly will she like me, should I bring her a sonic card or is that sucking up, and SO ON AND SO ON: CHECK.
