It’s funny because I feel almost as emotional tonight as I did last year. Sure we know the routine of the school, the teachers, you have your little group of friends in your class and those that you play with in the playground and at club. But there’s still a new teacher and TA for you to bond with, to learn their way and them to learn your quirks, there’s new class friends to make and the learning through play will slowly be phased out, to be replaced with a bit more work.
You’ve had six weeks off and we all know how long that feels, I really hope you adjust back to the daily routine quickly and settle back in easily.
We’ve had a fab time over the Summer holidays, but now I sit here worrying that we’ve packed too much in in a determination to keep you occupied and not let you get bored and actually maybe we’ve just worn you out, not spent enough one on one quiet time together. I feel guilty that you’ve been shipped off to grandparents on my working days and aside from our family holiday you haven’t had any time with just me or daddy.
