Sarah Jessica Parker Takes James to His First Day of School (Photos)

Sarah Jessica Parker and James Wilkie Broderick.

For a good chunk of the country, school has been in session for so long that the kids are already losing their pencils and wearing out the soles of their new sneakers. But in New York City, they still believe in starting the learning season after Labor Day.

Yesterday and today were the first days of class in the city, depending on whether you go to private or public school. And, true to form, Sarah Jessica Parker was right by her son James Wilkie‘s side to get him to his homeroom on time.

It was a lovely late-summer morning, so short sleeves were definitely in order. Nine-year-old James wore a souvenir shirt from a popular so-gross-it’s-cool touring museum attraction, while Sarah Jessica selected a striped T that was very pretty – even if it wasn’t quite enough to hide the, um, signs of a slight chill in the air.

Sarah Jessica and husband Matthew Broderick have always taken a hands-on approach to parenting, happily escorting their kids to school and activities rather than leaving the job to nannies. SJP has even said that they don’t employ any help at home at night; once the work day is over, they simply enjoy being a family together.

    Sarah Jessica looks great in her patterned jeans and striped T - but perhaps she should have worn a slightly thicker undergarment.
