End of an Era

Well, today’s the day.  Seems a little strange, but after today, I will be the mother of 2 school aged children (not 1 and a little one) and that I am sure, will speed up time, as they are both growing up so fast.

DD2 is ready to start school and has been parading around in her new uniform already.  Not sure I am ready, will have to wait and see – I am looking forward to big blocks of peace and quiet so I can get on with the housework (shush – I mean sewing!), but will be odd being surplus to requirements for a large part of the day.

Most of my friends at DD2′s pre-school are doing the ‘starting big school’ thing for the first time and are all upset and weepy.  I am assuming I am not, because I have already been through this process with DD1.

I also managed to hold it all together for the little graduation, which really surprised me.

So, I am busy making a gift of bunting with the pre-school’s name appliqued on, left till the last minute of course, as she needs picking up and gift presenting at 12 noon today!

So, I hope all of you moving on to new adventures today have fun and make good memories.


UPDATE – Tears were shed (by me, not DD2!) and they LOVED their personalised bunting with bells on gift.  :-D

  1. Katie,
    dont fool yourself. You wont be surplus to requirements that is for definate. What you will find is that you have less time than when you had only 1 child at school. Come back this time next year and tell me that this is not true.

    • Oh Val, don’t burst my bubble!! I am hanging on till I get five quiet hours a day to do what I want or need to do. I am determined to get a bit of ‘Me Time’ as soon as they start back at school!

  2. It is always difficult to get familiar persons about this issue, however you be understood as you understand exactly what you are referring to! Cheers
