    Default Who attended your child's first day of school?

    SIL has invited me and 18 month old dd to attend my nieces first day of school. Lovely thought and I'm delighted she thought of us, but she has also invited
    grandparents x4 along with sils DH and her son.

    So, there will be an entourage of 9 plus my niece all there. Do you think it's too ott and will poor DN be overwhelmed.

    who attended your child's FDOS? I told DH when DD gets there it will be DH, me and any of DD siblings.

    DH and me and sibs. Totally impractical to have 9 people - imagine if every kid brought 9 people into the classroom? It's chaotic enough on the first day IMO!

    That's too many! On DS's first day it was me, DD and of course DS to drop him off.

    As a teacher, parents and siblings are more than enough. Can be too much for the child too!

    I think It's a bit much and as a child I would have been quite overwhelmed with all the fuss. We just had lots of photos taken and shared out to the relatives if they wanted them. My niece starts pre school next week and as much as I would love to be there I think Its something for just my sister to cherish with her daughter and her other bub

    I just take the younger sibling and myself. I take the photos at home. So maybe you could suggest they see her at their house. 9 people in the classroom is just plain crazy. Maybe put it to her that if every kid had 6 people(both gp's and M and d each) that everyone wouldn't fit. 9 people is just plain selfish.

    DD1 started last year we got MIL to mind siblings so that DH & i could just take her ourselves.

    There were a few kids there with massive entourages and it looked kinda silly

    Father, mother and any younger siblings. I think that it's too many, maybe a special breakfast at home so all can come. But those classrooms are not big enough

    Oh good it's not just me then. Everything SIL does is a bit ott so I knew DN FDOS would be no exception.

    i think as I said yes already I will go but lurk in the background and stay out of the classroom, it will be madness already by the sounds of it.
