Lets Go To Primary!

This year we have had quite a big year involving changes,  and we still have a couple more to come.
One if these changes is , my Mini Man starting Primary School.

I, naturally, am quite emotional about this,  and I am sure most mums would agree, that it’s a big deal.
My Mini Man however,  is ecstatic and cannot wait to start.
So much so, that he has placed a sticker in his calendar on the day he starts and is ticking the days off as we go.

The next paragraph is from the Primary 1 himself.
I am a bit scared, because I will nursery.
I am happy too, because I am a big boy now.
My teacher is Miss Hendry and I like her and my class.
I wonder what we will do in class?

We are lucky that we stay a 5 minute walk from the school and nursery.   Maybe not so lucky when its pouring it down!

The Mini Mans big choice, according to him, is whether to have packed lunches or school dinners.
When I was at primary, I always had a packed lunch.  It was in the rare occasion I had a school dinner.
We have decided between myself and the Mini Man, that 1 day a week, if he wants to, he can have a school dinner.
He is happy with this, and that suits me.

Do your children have school dinners or packed lunches? Or both?
We like comments here, so comment away 🙂

The Boy is Going to School

As I am writing this, I am in deep shock!
Last Wednesday I enrolled my mini man into our local primary school. Such an emotional day for a soppy mummy like me.

Will someone please tell me where the time has went to?? Who stole it?
I demand to have my bouncing baby boy back.

In all honesty though, and as much as I hate to admit it, he is ready, bless his wee socks.
Bias, of course not (well, maybe a teeny, tiny bit) but I have one smart cookie on my hands. And in these last few months, he has been soaking up more and more, is more willing to learn than this time last year.

Do you know how hard it was to finally decide on what school to send him to? Unbelievable! But you have to think carefully, as it’s their future in your hands. Scary biscuits or what?!
In the end we picked our chosen school for various reasons. Including some help from the nursery, thoughts from the teachers etc.

I am nervous and excited for my mini man to start a new chapter in his life and he is more than ready to.
Question is, am I?

How did you pick your little ones school? Were you anxious?
I’d love to hear about your school stories, maybe put my mind at ease.
