.Big Boy = School.

This morning my little boy got big!

He woke up all excited about his first day of Kindergarten and kept bugging me all morning to leave. Last night we had a chat about how it is really important to be obedient and organised on school days and that Oscar needs to eat breakfast, get dressed and help pack his bag before he plays in the morning before school. He was so good this morning getting everything ready, but a little over-excited which made the morning drag on for him as he was waiting to leave!!
When we got to school he was really quiet and didn't talk much to his teachers, I thought he must have been feeling sad so I sat down to play with him for a bit. I told him that I would stay with him until he was ready for me to leave and he looked straight up at me and said, "can you leave now then Mum?!!!"
I felt a little bit sad that he wasn't upset about me leaving him but he is so ready to be at school, and if he is happy then I am happy! After he asked me the third time if I was going to leave yet I thought I had better get out of there and leave him to his new world of learning and independence!
Tommy, Lil and I went to playgroup at the beach after dropping Oscar off at school now we are back at home, the little ones are asleep, I've got 1 1/2 hours until we have to leave to pick up Oscar...my options are to pack more boxes, do some Make it Perfect work or have a short nap...I know what I'm doing ;)

(Yes, I'm going to be the Mum who goes to pick her kid up from school every afternoon trying to flatten down my bed-hair!!!)

Sooo cute!! Glad he liked it. Don't be sad. You would be more sad if you left him in tears.
I chose the nap today too :) It's so nice now that Harri is gone everyday and I know I can have a nanna nap if I need to :)

Don't worry Toni. Zoe wasn't worried when I left either though thank goodness I did get a big hug when I picked her up! :-)

My daughter started preschool last week and my son started prep last week too. It feels so weird being by myself when they are both at preschool/school. But I still manage to keep myself busy - usually doing the shopping.
