Jennie Garth Talks About Sending Her Daughters Off to School

The First Day of School: Harder on Mother or Child?

"I just need one more kiss goodbye. One more hug. OK, last kiss . . . I promise!" While a mommy hopes her child will run into the classroom with curiosity, she also hopes to hear those words when dropping her tot off for the first day of school. But mama better take a good look in the mirror because chances are she's the one that will have the tougher time letting go.

Famous for portraying high-school student, Kelly Taylor, actress Jennie Garth admits that she is the one who hides in the back of the classroom before leaving her daughters on the first day of school. At T.J. Maxx's Save the Children's Back-to-School Program, the 90210 actress spoke about sending her youngest child off to pre-k:

I am the mom that stays in the back hiding. She's going to school where my other two daughters went to school, and they let me stay as long as I need to. It's not even about Fiona, it's about me and getting through my separation issues.

With her new acting gig, the mama of three might be able to use her onscreen "high school guidance counselor" title to impart some knowledge on her lil misses . . . and herself! When it comes time to drop off, tell mommy who has the harder time waving adieu?
