Tomorrow my youngest child will be starting primary school, and I can't say I'm not trepidatious, or that I won't miss her (or the other two - we've had a great summer holiday together), but I'm also excited.
|This time last year!|
I'm glad we don't still live in England, where she would have started school last year. She was too young then, but I think she's ready now, and I hope it's not going to be too bumpy a start. Miss 5 is a strong willed one, and she will make her feelings known (nothing genetic there then). Starting nursery was 'interesting', but we got there, in the end, and through the difficult beginning she got stronger relationships with the nursery staff, and more confidence in being there. I'm sure we'll have a few wobbles starting P1, but she's going to be fine, and she's so excited about bringing her reading on, I'm actually kind of looking forward to those Biff, Chip and Kipper books.
|Have you had the 'pleasure' of meeting Biff, Chip, and Kipper?|
As for me, someone said the other day "You won't know who you are!" They are right. It's a massive shift. I am going to be able to focus on me more, and I do intend to get on with writing that book. I am also hoping that I'll have time to finish a thought in my head, and time to tick a few of my 'to-dos' off my burgeoning list.
What are you looking forward to?
