I’ve stopped crying on my way home from dropping Boo off at school now. It did go on for a good week and a half but I’ve pulled myself together.
So we’ve got through the first month and this is what I’ve deduced from school.
1 They return home with a funny smell about them. I can’t put my finger on what it is but it is a kind of gym pump, school dinners, mud and milk cocktail. Nice.
2 At least one item of clothing has been lost already (it was the tie on her first PE lesson),
3 You’ve attended at least one PTA “getting to know each other” coffee morning.
4 Been through at least three tubs of stain remover already.
5. Had a reply to the ‘what did you eat for lunch today” question with sausages. Every. Day. Since. She. Started.
7 Received a homework book with ridiculous demands that a
ten 35 year old would struggle with.
8 Seen your angelic child come home with attitude.
9 Begin term with a stylish outfit for each day and perfect hair to give up a month in and just thank your lucky stars you ran a brush through your hair and changed out of your nightwear.
10 Started counting down the days to half term when you can relax and not have to fly around in the morning.
We will be doing this FOREVER. The novelty of the first few days is wearing off. No more rolling up at 9.15 like we did at nursery.
How have your little ones been if they started school this time?
