Hey readers,


My word of the week is:



This is because my eldest child went for a taster session at his new school that he will start in September. He is beyond excited and can not wait. He is desperate for me to buy the school uniform unlike me who is not so excited to leave a massive whole in my pocket😞.


I don’t know if am normal or not but I am not sad about this transaction. It is part of the process nor am I upset that he is not a baby. But I am pleased that he is turning into such a lovely little boy. I am happy as he is and I accept the situation. I read a lot about parents getting upset about this big change. I do worry that I am not emotionally attached. But then again I never get upset about the past I just take it in the chin. Maybe because I get more neurotic about things in the future that have not happened. It is just the way I am. God parenting is so tough and constantly doubting yourself.

Still he is a super excited and can’t wait to start big school in September.

Cheers for reading X

  1. So pleased he’s so excited! I was sad about my girl starting, but then I don’t worry about the future – we’re all different! I’ve known plenty of parents who weren’t upset about it, any reaction is perfectly normal I think x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

  2. Well done to your little boy for being excited to go to “big school”. I don’t remember being said either, though I remember being nervous. My daughter didn’t really enjoy play-school, so I knew it would be a struggle once she started reception. She cried for about two weeks, then was fine. She loves school now and will be in Year 2 in September. Yikes! #wotw
