It's a pretty big step. I know she'll take it in her stride, she's busting to go - and I'm so excited for her. Part of me wants to keep her with me though, the separation is going to be a big adjustment for me, and the whole dynamic of the day-times at home with change. For the better I'm sure. Dividing my time between two girls instead of three will open up all kinds of new activities and give me a chance to focus a bit more on Olivia and Laura's writing of their name, basic maths skills and general milestones.
Having to be somewhere twice a day, five days a week is going to be good too - a new routine and getting motivated in the mornings will get me fitting in more into the day, sticking with a new routine (although our current one is pretty solid). Washing school uniforms, going through homework, notes from school, volunteering time.
We're almost ready too. All the school uniforms are hanging, I've started labelling all her clothes and belongings - lunchbox, drink bottle, school bag all accounted for. Got our knee hi socks, hair elastics and singlets sorted last weekend, this week will see the purchase of the school shoes and a hair-trim. Then just the art-smock and the library bag to purchase two days before she starts. Feel relieved I got uniforms back in September now.
3 weeks today and I'll she'll be getting me up for her first day at school. Wow.
