Back to School Time can be bittersweet for parents, something Justin Moore knows something about, as he says he was a wreck when his oldest daughter, Ella, started kindergarten.
He was playing a concert the night before, and in a statement from his label, he remembers, “I don’t remember where we were on a Sunday evening, and she was starting on Monday, and I boo-hooed all the way home on the plane.
“Then I got home and my wife was asleep. We got home at like midnight and I said, ‘How could you sleep at a time like this?! What is wrong with you?!’
“She goes, ‘What?!’ She goes, ‘She’s gonna be fine.’
“I said, ‘I’m not gonna be fine!’”
Ella is the oldest of four children, including one who was just born in June, so hopefully the next three “First Days of School” will be a little less traumatic for Justin.
