|Me and my beautiful girl on her 1st day of ‘BIG’ school.|
As of last week I became a mum of TWO (out of three) school kids!! It’s going to mean big changes in our house this year but it really has been a long time coming. Miss H has been absolutely desperate to go to school since about the middle of last year. It’s been a long and sometimes painful wait, but she finally made it!! Master J is sitting on the fence at them moment about whether or not it’s cool to have a little sister at school.
I had mixed emotions on the first day. I found the summer holidays soooooo long, especially towards in the last couple of weeks – the kids were driving me crazy! As much as I adore them, I am pretty sure I am a much better mum when they are at school and I have a little bit of time to use my brain in-between parenting. However, I was a little sad to see her go (and might have had a tiny tear under my sunnies) and found myself lingering around outside the school just to make sure she was ok. She was of course, but out of experience I know that the wobbles and tiredness only start to creep in around week 4 when the novelty wears off and they begin to realise that “This is it and you have to go EVERY day!”
I am also sending my baby off to daycare twice a week this year and letting her go was so much harder for me, as at only 20 months old it was impossible to explain to her that I was coming back. I know I’ve done the right thing though and she will flourish with it.
Here are a few photos of the first day of school this year. Miss H has gone into Kindergarden and Master J will be in Year 2.
|And off they go……..Kindergarden and Year 2!|
