So October has come and in no time at all – will be over! (- how does this always happen?!) Whilst some kids have dreaded the new school term starting, in our house it has been quite the opposite. Fin has started in Year 1 with a fresh and confident attitude – long gone are the days of him being scared of lunchtime… or the playground… or his own shadow! Oh no, now he is in year one he is a ‘big boy’ who helps the smaller Reception children, seeing as he is SOOO old! Reading time at home is no longer a chore with him squirming around the sofa repeating ‘I can’t do it, I can’t do it’ instead he is much more mature about it all and wants to progress and succeed! YAH!

So whilst the ‘big boy’ was skipping off to his new classroom in Year 1, Imogen was getting measured up for her very own uniform! Excited was understatement – and beaming from ear to ear she started the school nursery. The nursery that she has been willing to go to since Fin attended every day not so long ago. She was so keen to start that in our ‘settling in morning’ where the parents stick around whilst the little ones explore their new setting, she turned to me and said ‘mummy, are you going to go now?!’ – now that’s confidence for you! All of a sudden I’m not needed!

The hard part (getting them to enjoy school) was sorted, but long before conquering that came the easiest part by far –  the dreaded school uniform!! Apart from the traditional visit to the ‘school uniform shop’ where the queue is halfway round the block and it’s one in, one out – the rest of the uniform-acquiring process was a dream, especially as you can use.. ahem, next.co.uk and have great quality polo shirts, blazers, sweaters, shorts, trousers, cardigans, shoes AND PE kit *breathe* delivered the NEXT DAY if you Order by 10pm. Yup!  It all seemed so easy, I almost feel a little tooooo relaxed about the return to the school gate! Surely I’ve missed something…? Oh well there’s always Next to fall back on!
