Tori Spelling: “Liam Started Kindergarten”

Mom-of-four Tori Spellling welcomed son Finn with husband Dean McDermott on August 30. And although she’s busier than ever, Tori continues to share special family moments on her website On Wednesday, the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum opened up about her 5-year-old son Liam’s first day of kindergarten.

“A lot of amazing moments have been happening to us recently, and this past week was no exception.  I now have two boys, but my very first baby and little man Liam started Kindergarten last week!

It was a big moment in the McDermott house. Just a few months ago, I sobbed as Liam graduated from pre-school, and this past Thursday the tears flowed again as I watched my baby start Kindergarten.

He started at a new school and was so proud to now be wearing a uniform! It’s no secret that Liam is a trendsetter and loves his bow ties, so where most toddlers would resist the notion of wearing a tie to school (although at this new school, he only wears a tie once a week), Liam was psyched!

At drop off I watched him in his blazer and tie, hair combed neatly and shoulders back, pull his Star Wars backpack on wheels into the unknown down the school corridor to his classroom.  Accompanied by a few other students and a teacher, he looked back to see if Dean and I were still waiting there. Still there?! I couldn’t take my eyes off of him. When his eyes caught mine I frantically waved, smiled and blew him kisses.  He blew me a kiss back and gave me a thumbs-up, as if to say “Mom, I’m OK. Don’t worry. It’s all good”.”

    I am glad he does not have to wear a tie everyday he looks so uncomfortable not psyched as article indicated :). A kindergartener needs to be able to run and play even at exclusive private school.:)

    Hmmmmm…Are five-year-old children considered to be toddlers these days? I always thought the term referred to little ones who were no longer infants, usually not potty trained, and “toddling around” on their own little legs (ages 1-3 years). In my opinion, once a child reaches Kindergarten age, he/she is definitely a “kid!”

    Be prepared for Liam’s “kindergarten stories”…

    Why is she calling a five year old a toddler? Very odd. I can honestly say that I’ve never heard a single person call their five year old a toddler.

    He looks so pretentious in that outfit. Khaki pants & a soft short sleeved polo shirt would be nice enough, not that jacket/shirt/tie combo. Poor Toddler Liam. 🙁

    youre right @anon they can afford it however, i dont get peoples grudge with celebrities sending their kids to private schools i know they work hard to send their kids to private school. just as my parents did to send me to catholic school. many normal families sacrifice and labor for their childrens education its not about being a celebrity… to each their own
