boohoo breakfast
 n.— «“It’s the first realization that they will leave you at some point,” said Mary Morel, a mother of four, including 5-year-old twins who started kindergarten at Safety Harbor Elementary School on Wednesday. “It’s really sad. I cried all (Tuesday).” Schools are mindful of the transition and some have scheduled Boohoo Breakfasts to help parents cope. Most children, for their part, took their new independence in stride.» —“ Separation anxiety—on the part of parents” by Monique Fields St. Petersburg Times (Florida) Aug. 24, 2000.
