This past week has been mostly about the twiglets adjusting back into school life and settling into Year 1. We’ve taken it pretty easy the rest of the time really!
Last week started off pretty uneventfully and quietly, with more back to school prep and just taking it easy in advance of the craziness of the new year. And then on Thursday, H and C had their first day of Year 1!
After our little break away in Suffolk, we have had a really quiet week. We were all pretty exhausted. I think after lockdown and barely doing anything for months, it’s been a bit of a shock having such a busy summer! But one thing lockdown has taught me, is that actually we don’t need to be out and about all the time, and the twiglets can be perfectly contented just chilling out at home. We’ve also had plenty of back to school prep to be getting on with!
Since we entered the world of childcare and now school, there have been occasions where I’ve faced a dilemma that I find really tricky as a parent. How do you know when kids are too sick for school?
At Christmas, we had our first experience of attending a school show. The twiglets had their Reception Christmas concert. Cute little kids on a stage singing – what could be more lovely, right? Well it was lovely. But simultaneously a bit of a bloody nightmare! So I thought I’d share some tips for attending school shows for anyone who hasn’t had this joy yet…
