My little princess started school last week, she’s not 5 until August, its such a big step, well for me and her dad anyway.
All she talked about in the run up was “going to big class”, she was so excited, mum and dad less so.
Thankfully she is used to being away from us, she attended the playgroup, situated in the school grounds so she knows the school, teachers and because she has older siblings in school she knows most of the big children too. ( should add that the school only has between 40 and 50 pupils)
I think this is why she is so confident and she seems to have settled in so well, she gets up in the mornings, washes and gets dressed and even lets me brush her hair without the usual fights.
Apparently today she got told off for talking during assembly, I thought this might have put her off a bit, but no, her brothers are more upset about it than she is.
So, there is just me and the 2yr old at home now, he’s fine too, I was expecting him to be a bit difficult as his little playmate wasnt here to fight ahem I mean play with, but no, my children are growing up!
