A Momentous Day

Hi all,

Today TP took one of those steps that really requires talking about.

He is growing up so fast, I can’t believe that he is now at school. He is wearing a uniform. He suddenly can brush his own hair because “I am a big boy now!”.

Ready to go….he helped pack his lunch box and then just wanted to get going. (He wouldn’t let me take a better photo at school, so this is it. That is BW in the shot too.)

Getting settled in. There were a few activities they could do while they waited for the day to begin.

He was complaining of a pain in the belly when we arrived, I’m pretty sure it is nerves because he said that a bit with kindy too, but I might get it checked if he keeps saying it. We don’t need him to have an ulcer before he is 10.

There were no tears! Which was fantastic. And all night he has been raving about how much he enjoyed it and loved it. I hope that feeling sticks around for a while.

I know I don’t usually go on about my family, but to me this is a really big occasion. I’ll be back in a day or two with some sewing related goodness!

TP does have a worried look on his face but BW looks like he is really going to enjoy the day! Glad there were no tears. Has passed into the big boy territory well and truly, doing his own hair?!

Love Deb.

Bless his cotton socks, it is a big world out there and I hope he will like school.
My little grand daughter starts kindy on thursday and it makes my stomach ache.

Take care
Christine

That's fantastic Jess. I'm so pleased he enjoyed his first day.
My DS starts school next week and I'm sure I'll be the one getting teary. Wasn't it only yesterday they were born?

Hope your wee man will soon settle to enjoy school without that pain in tum feeling. I still remember leaving my youngest who hated 'nursery' as we call it, and that was 26 years ago. I felt like a cruel mum just turning my back and leaving. However, she sailed through the remainder of school, so, no damage done.
