I am always proud of my children and I try and tell them often, almost everyday. I am proud of them for many reasons, a sticker at nursery for good work, trying a new thing, being kind and helping or just for being them!

But today I am feeling extra specially proud! (*alarm* Warning a mushy braggy mummy moment coming)


Today hubby went to collect the mouse from playgroup, she has been going a while, two mornings a week and always enjoys going. Her key worker approached hubby and said ‘do you spend a lot of time doing things with her?’ Hubby explained that we try to, playing and reading etc.. ‘you can tell’ came the response! Apparently our little mouse is a little star, learning fast, a pleasure to have at playgroup and no bother at all! (Big Smiles).

So this evening we headed back to school, for Legs’ first parents evening since he started real ‘all day long and everything’ school! (Them big smiles are creeping back in). We are very pleased to hear that he is doing very well, learning fast, achieving lots and enjoying his time there! He is doing really well at imaginative play and retelling stories, he is loving learning words and reading, is sociable and is progressing so well!

I am so so extra specially proud of them today! My bright little stars!

Legs and Mouse, you are brilliant! A credit and a blessing to me a daddy and we love you very much!

The first day (well half day) has been done!

Last night we made sure the uniform, preschool record and PE kit were all ready, so all we had to do was get up, get ready and go! So, thats what we did, we did it with Legs literally bouncing with excitement! Once he had eaten, he got dressed into his uniform and oh my word, my heart melted at the sight of my big boy! Obviously I got the camera out and took a couple (okay 113) photos and then it was on on our way!

Walking onto the school grounds was a massive realisation that this was School, not pre-school attached to a school but real school. This is the first day of Legs’ compulsory education!

As it happens, Legs loves learning, he couldn’t wait to get in there and see what he would get to do, who he would meet! So with kisses and lots of ‘you are awesome’ types comments we left him to his day. Legs was fine, I knew he would be, he was always going to be happy to stay!

Walking back to the car, out of sight of Legs I had a wobble, always expected, I was waiting for it! With moist eyes I looked at OH, who looked back looking a little shell shocked! Have we done enough to prepare him? Will he be ok? Will we be ok?

I had thoughts of leaving behind a childhood, that we have had our 5 years (*ahem* 4 years and 5 months) to put in our input, to teach and mould, now we will fight teachers and peers for time and brain space,  that now school was going to be the real influence in his life. I felt robbed of our fun time too, how dare the system take away our fun time!

But, I then thought back to Legs and his excitement. I looked at the photos and his smile! Hubby reminded me of all the compliments we get about Legs and his manner, his behaviour and his general fab-ness. We have done a good job so far, we will continue to be there, we will cherish the fun time, we will help the learning, we are still mummy and daddy and we will help him grow!

Our little man is awesome and will continue to be so!

A Kiss of Luck From Mouse

All I can say is ‘One More Sleep….’

There is one week to go! Yep, one week, 7 days, until……big boy school!

Yep, our little boy is starting school a week today! Are we ready? Well, he is! Can’t wait, he wants to wear his new shoes constantly, wants to see his new lunch box, keeps saying ‘is it tomorrow?’ and looks so grown up in his uniform it makes mummy want to cry!

Is Mummy ready? Yes and No, I am ready because we have the stuff, I am ready because I know how good it will be for Legs and I am ready because I know how much he wants to go!  But, (yep always a but), I am nervous because he doesn’t really know the children he is going with as we only recently moved to the area, I am worried that kids can be really mean sometimes and I am not there to protect him, I am sad that my little boy is growing up so fast and I am scared because maybe he won’t need me as much any more!

On a positive note though I am so proud that he is raring to go, I am proud that he loves to learn and feels confident enough to ask questions and explore, I am proud that he is a kind boy and doesn’t like others to be upset or hurt , I am proud he is nice to others and I am so proud that he is growing up into a little man who will achieve so much and every day reminds us how awesome he is!

I am nervous, but I am ready! Our little boy is about to start his education journey, and I have no doubt in my mind that he will do brilliantly, that he will enjoy it and he will make his Mummy and Daddy so proud!
