The day my first born, beautiful
His new uniforms are named, neatly ironed and hanging in his wardrobe.
His new bag is awaiting to be packed with his new books, new lunch box and new water bottle.
And then a thought struck me this morning. My boy does get a little shy or apprehensive doing new things so I just thought that instead of sending him off with everything new on the first day, I'm going to give him his old lunch box for the first few days anyway. Something familiar in a world of new might make him feel a little more secure. In the second, or third week I'll pull out the new lunch box, when he's settled.
But the good news for the day is, one of the first things he said after he woke this morning was, "I'm really excited about starting Prep tomorrow." Phew!! That is great. I wonder if there will be tears? From me I mean!!
Wish us luck.
And good luck to anyone else with little ones starting school this year.
