First Day at School

FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL

For me, for the first time, the shoe is now on the other foot! I have no idea how I am going to react as I leave my four-year old son at school on his first day; I may have all the theory in the world but keeping my emotions in tact in reality could be a different story! Having been a Reception teacher for years I have witnessed a wide range of actions and emotional responses from both children and parents on the first day of school.   If I counted up the tears, I have definitely seen more parents in tears than children on the first day!

It's all go, go, go...

AM - Packed lunches made? Children up? Sun cream on? Children dressed? You showered? You dressed (whilst toddler wrapped around your leg)? Children’s bags packed? Children’s books read ready to return and change? Everyone eaten breakfast? Teeth brushed? Your toddler doesn’t make the toilet in time so needs changing for the second time? Your work bag, computer, folders organised? Phew...just making it out the door at 7.30am and your baby decides to fill her nappy? Back up the stairs, quick change and out the door? Quick trip to the childminder’s house, kisses and cuddles goodbye, and off to work?
