Oh August. I’ve already attended school registration. My daughter has gotten her yearly physical and teeth cleaning. By the way, they started requiring dental exams for school at some time since I graduated? Alright then.Â You can’t walk through your local Target without being trampled by kids picking out their new folders and the right set of colored pencils. You can’t get into a department store without a pounding headache filled with back-to-school fashion, complete with neon glitter and lots of sequins. Yes, August is upon us.

In the flurry of back-to-school checklists it can be easy to forget that the real people who need to be ready for September are your kids.
