Click To Be Amazed

A Neo-Dad blog built on rambling thoughts, sudden wisdom, and a double shot of goofiness.

growinguplast:

Oh Ferris, I know EXACTLY what you mean! Luckily, for most of us, it’s Labor Day and school is out. In fact, for some of our little ones the school year has only just started or (as in my guy’s case) will not officially begin until tomorrow. In the scholastic spirit of things, we’ve decided to make this week “Back to School” week!
This week we’ll be tackling the following topics (and we hope you’ll join in):
Monday: Today we’ll be talking about How to Get Ready for the Big Day—from setting your kid’s bedtime schedule to back-to-school shopping to meeting your kid’s teacher to taking those adorable ‘first day’ photos, how can parents get the school year off to a successful start? We’re looking for any tips or trade secrets from parents-in-the-know!
Tuesday: Truthful Tuesday means talking about those "First Day Jitters." We’re hoping you’ll share your first day fears, memories, and/or words of wisdom for children (and parents!) about starting the new school year—elementary, middle, high school or beyond.
Wednesday: We will be Saluting Teachers on Wednesday so please tell us about a teacher who made a difference in your child’s life or your own (for better or worse). We’d also love to hear about any family members you have in the trenches making a difference every day.
Thursday: We’ll be tackling some of the Tough Topics in Education on Thursday, including bullying, dress codes, and other hot button issues. Feel free to ask any school-related questions you may have. And don’t forget about our “Take a Picture Thursday” feature on Instagram (#taptgul)—this week we want to see "What’s Inside Your Kid’s Backpack or Lunchbag?"
Friday: Friday is being saved for First Day Photos! You know you have them and you know we love them! Share those first day of school photos (and stories) with the rest of the class!
We’re looking forward to a great week and kicking off the school year right! We hope you’ll join us!

It’s a French Vanilla

Whipped cream in your coffee type morning. We hit the road Friday night to visit family this long weekend. Living just beyond reach is okay. Although, I wish we lived within “Saturday barbecues at a moments notice” distance and not “Visiting happens mostly on holidays” distance.

Here at Growing up Last we are almost always in a state of flux—much like our families in real life, change is inevitable—and so we have always tried to remain flexible when panel members step down to make room for other pursuits, as our team-mate Celi has done. Her insightful and heart-felt posts will certainly be missed.
But, as we have mentioned in previous weeks, we have been keeping an eye out to add new members to our panel and we can now announce that Kat from trans-parenting will be joining our panel! We are very happy to have a fresh voice and look forward to what she has to offer to all of our readers.
There will likely be another member or two added to our team before year’s end but, in the meantime, we hope you’re as excited as we are about the new addition!
