The first day of school was always my favorite as a kid – a new outfit and backpack, exactly the lunch I wanted in my new lunch box, and the chance to see all of my friends again.
I think my favorite part was, though, that on the first day of school, my parents made my brother and I pancakes. Pancakes were special in our house – the occasional Sunday pancake was seen, but mostly they were reserved for morning outings to the diner or holidays. But on the first day of school (at least for the early, non-teenage years when my brother and I would sleep until the last possible moment and just grab a granola bar while walking out of the door) my parents would make us a big stack of pancakes with the inevitable tower of bacon because, you know, bacon.
It was magical – I think we knew that it took a little longer and the fact that our mom woke up a little earlier to make them for us meant a lot. It was a fun and easy way for my mom and dad to make the first day or school a little more special and in some ways was a little bit of a goodbye party to summer days spent together.
