Do you do anything to make their first day back special?
No. Not really, but I tend to do a lot over the course of the year.
I usually get a cute cake.
We go out for icecream or something. But I don't get them a toy or anything. I already got them a ton of stuff like clothes, etc.
I usually do a special back to school breakfast. French toast or crepes or something....
I just take a first day of school photo. (then one on the last day to see how much they've grown).
I get pictures, last year we went for ice cream after.
Special lunch packed with a note hidden in there to surprise her.
