right choice

It's OKAY if kids are not in the same class/school as their friends. Your DD will probably have a new school best friend by the time the first week is out.

Even if they stayed together this year,...

I'm very sensitive, but I didn't need the checklist to tell me that! I just keep getting worse and worse! I probably cry /tear up every single day.

Zulily

I won't order again. I bought a sweatshirt for my (then) 6yo DD. I bought size 6-8, and it was WAY too small. Ridiculously sized. Never ordering again.

Pre autumn experience?

Names

Just glad I named my daughter before I became a teacher. There really aren't many Taylor's I like. They tend to be (IME) high-maintenance drama queens..........DD included <!--giggle-->
