    My DD is very late August bday and cutoff is 9/1. We put her in according to cut off. She is a 3rd grade now and is doing great. The only downside is that she is the last to do everthing. Last to lose teeth, birthday party to turn 8 does not even occur until the beginning of the next school year when everyone has already been 8 for months. But I don't regret it. It really does depend on the child.

    @mrsjd: @agold: my husband and I were also the youngest in our respective classes, and liked it, and I'm like mrsjd and the opposite of you, agold--I have a (probably pointless) attachment to the idea that our babe also be the youngest, so I'm hoping he comes right on time. I have friends all over the country whose school systems have different cutoff dates, though, and who knows where we'll be living, so I'm trying not to get attached to the idea right now. it does seem like either has advantages/disadvantages. but beyond school, having a late summer birthday is a lifetime of awesome no matter what

    @LCTBQE: haha really? I have a summer birthday and hated it as a kid, we were never in school and it was hard to keep in contact with people over break (this was well before social media and cell phones).

    sorry for the thread jack, but i hated my summer birthday as a kid.
