As much as I try to ignore it, the reality is that my not even 4 year old starts school this September and I’m not sure how I feel about that.
Since loosing Poppy Megs has kind of been my baby still, she snuggles, strokes my hair, gives me kisses and is gentle and kind. On other days she is a feisty almost 4 year old with a whole lot of cheek, independence and divaesque about her. We spend our days drifting along; baking, making, colouring, out on adventures and watching Disney movies.
The closer September gets I find myself often wondering what she might be like at school , how she will take it and how being so young in the year will affect her…I most definitely think she has the potential to be Miss Bossy!
When Ethan was due to start school last year, I was aware of the dates things had to be completed by, all of the Ofsted reports and stats of local schools and was just generally on it. I watched my emails like a hawk waiting for the news and went crazy to find out her got our 1st choice. With Megan however, her application was done the day before the deadline and just on Saturday I googled the date for admissions release in our area (It was Monday this week).
Perhaps it is because Ethan is already in school and we have found it a comfortable transition and have naturally assumed Megsie would just follow him there. Or perhaps I have been feeling a little anxious that her time at home full time is almost up and I will miss having her around to snuggle and explore life with. I cannot believe she will be starting school full time, with her little uniform and book bag in just 5 months!
The email was there in my inbox this morning and I am please to say that she got our 1st choice – YAHHHHOOOOOOOO! The little beaut will be in Reception at Ethan’s current school, next door to him and sat in front of his class in assembly! When we broke the news she turned to him and said “yay we going to school together”! I am so happy for the little buddies to be there together, to know the school, the teachers and the flow of things. Whilst loosing Megsie full-time at home, I know she will enjoy it too…that’s if we don’t end up moving if Mr Smith gets a job elsewhere!
