    Back to School with Hilroy 1
    I accidentally discovered that my new EPIPEN fits perfectly into a small supply pouch from Hilroy. This protects the EPIPEN and also makes it easily accessible.

  37. Darlene Schuller says:

    This would go to my daughter who is entering grade 3.. already all worked up over the grade 3 testing too.. really not happy with the school ugh….

    • That stinkin’ test jaded my daughter’s entire year last year, she was SO anxious about it. BUT in the end, she still had a great year. Here is a piece I wrote about handling the anxiety that comes with the EQAO testing.. http://www.multitestingmommy.com/2014/05/test-anxiety.html

      • Darlene Schuller says:

        thank you going to read it now.. I think I read it last year as well… but it never pertained to Miss K so it didn’t stick with me I’m sure. I’m just pee’d off this has over shadowed her entire summer. They made good and sure to tell them at the end of school LAST year.. stressing how important it is they do well.. we’ve been telling her it’s not different then any other test or exam she’s going to have to do in school, she should approach them all with such concern.. just not for 3 months before the fact………….. thanks for the link to the article, reading now!

      • Darlene Schuller says:

        Yes I had read it!! Re read it again and jotted down some tips.. thanks girlie..I had no idea it was 5 friggin’ days long…… ugh!

        • Yes, it was a LONG week!!!

          • Darlene Schuller says:

            it’s been a long 3 months.. this past week she has stepped up her game in chatting about it.. I told her last night while she was bathing that I do love she’s concerned, it shows me she cares, cares about how well she does, cares about doing well.. it’s important to approach every challenge with that same type of feeling.. but not to where she’s worrying about it months in advance. My girl doesn’t handle change or unorganization very well (except her room, it’s ok you can’t see the floor in there 1/2 the time). I just want to slap her teacher for this….this is not something that she should’ve had to have on her mind all summer long.

          • I fully agree that she shouldn’t have had to think about it all summer. I feel badly for her. I know my daughter spent her whole 2nd grade year with her teacher hanging EQAO over her head.

          • Darlene Schuller says:

            Such nonsense… I told her it’s more of a test for the teachers and the school.. to make sure they are teaching the children properly and they are learning as they should… I don’t know what more to do about it.. I don’t even know when it is… my luck at the END of the freakin year

Hoping that it catches up to him so he doesnt feel like a failure in the higher grades. This would be great for his self esteem.

        I’m a RPN, so I am expanding my skill set. I hope to each HCA’s in the near future. This will take me out of the front line and allow my body to take a break. I’ve been nursing for 35 years, and it’s getting harder to get up in the mornings. (I’m 55 now)

        • mommakoala says:
