The first day of school is always a big deal! But Chyler’s son couldn’t wait to go to school! What did you and your kids do to get ready for their first day back?

Today was a big day for Grey’s Anatomy star Chyler Leigh, 28, and husband Nathan West, 31 — their oldest, 6-year-old son Noah Wilde, went to school!  But, it wasn’t any ordinary first back-to-school day … “Today, my husband and I dropped my son off for his first day of first grade,” Chyler shared during a Sept. 8 conference call for her new Lifetime movie The 19th Wife (which airs Sept. 13). “He was very excited about first grade. He [even] helped us pack his backpack!”

“I think the fact that both of us were able to be there was special,” continued Chyler. “It’s not always so easy for us to be there.”

“It was a really big weekend and there was a lot to do [to get Noah ready],” Chyler added. Not only was the couple preparing Noah for his big day, but the family also celebrated their older daughter Taelyn Leigh‘s 4th birthday. (They also have a 18-month-old daughter, Anniston Kae a.k.a “Annie.”)

“We did this Disney Land trip where she got to be a complete and total princess,” Chyler gushed. “Head to toe, she princessed out!” Awww!

It sounds like it’s been a crazy few days for Chyler and Nathan. But HollyMoms, can you relate to Chyler’s back-to-school frenzy?
