Blogging all things parenting… and sometimes a bit in between ;)

Not another blog post about starting school ? (yes, sorry!)

starting school blog

This week has been all about change and I’m going to add yet another blog post to the blogosphere about starting school.  But really and truly I make no apologies.  It is a massive milestone after all…

Thankfully it’s been a pretty smooth, very tiring for all involved but exciting and fun nonetheless.  She’s been doing some very quick colouing-in at her desk (that used to be a cot) after her breakfast while I get ready.  And the uniform… our little bear loves her uniform.  So much so that she’s asked to wear her school tights again at the weekend!…

A week in and myself and hubby have noticed changes in her already!  Even down to her sentence structure.  She’s more adventurous with her food (I wrote about her Faddy Fussy Journey before) and started the week insisting on pack-ups.  She’s ended the week insisting on school dinners 🙂

She’s making new friends and her party invites have gone into all their book bags thanks to her wonderful teacher.  The invites are addressed just to ‘my new friend’!  She’s singing songs at home that she’s been singing in class including ‘Little Red Hen’ and shown us the actions 🙂 We’ve heard all about the toy office in the shed in the reception garden.  It sounds like so much fun and she made stickers for us which she put in her book bag!  That tells me she’s been thinking about us during her school day, as have we of her.

It’s early days and it’s been emotional!  But my word of the week is ‘change’.

    No need to apologise, it is a huge change and one every parent will recognise at some point. Glad to hear it’s going well x

  2. Oh, you’re so right, such a big milestone, and absolutely deserving of more posts! So pleased to hear how much she’s enjoying it all and that you’re already seeing changes in her. Go, little bear! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x
