Today James started school!
He was so excited last night so excited in fact he couldn't sleep and for about 1 hour after he had gone to bed we had him constantly shouting downstairs "Is it time for school yet?"
He even had us lay out his school clothes and shoes on the floor so he could see them the night before lol.
This morning he got himself dressed and I just sat and watched, He didn't need mummy to do it he told me, He was a big boy who was going to school! He looked so smart in his uniform and so proud! I was so proud of him! This tiny little baby I brought home nearly 5 years ago has grown into this handsome little man who is heading off to school.
Here he is in his uniform...
and with his baby sister...
When I took him in there were no hesitations from James, He couldn't wait to get in the classroom. He quickly found his peg and placed his book bag into the box and off he went into the class with just a quick kiss and goodbye for me and Peanut. I just about managed to hold back the tears (very much helped by the fact he was so excited about going in and had no hesitations or worry at all!). But inside I was all teary not upset or sad but bursting with pride for my little man!
When I picked him up at 12 (he is doing morning sessions for the first few weeks) he came running out of the door towards me with a massive smile on his face telling me how much fun he had and how he has milk and fruit on the carpet. He is already asking when he can go back and not happy that I told him not until tomorrow lol.
All I can say is enjoy every second of your little ones because they grow up so fast!
I hope all of those with little ones who have just started school have settled in just as well?
How did you find the first day when you took you little ones to school for the first time?
