– Full Time School Mum –
We survived the first week. Its been pretty manic and a few stressful mornings but we survived.
I am still getting used to the fact that I have two children at school. I still find it hard to believe it. Since when did I have two children old enough for school? This year has flown by, and it only felt like yesterday that I was applying for Moo’s schools place, let alone H’s.
Since having children, life has sped up a notch and it seems to flash before my eyes. The weeks turn into months and the months turn into years and I am willing for it to slow down. Moo seems to have had a major growth spurt within the six weeks holidays and she looks as though she should be entering year 4 or 5 not year 2. She is so eager to learn and is coming home full of tales of what she has been up to. She has become more confident and it shows.
This week has been hectic, rushing around trying to get both children out the door has been testing. I arrive at the school a little hassled and when I get home I have a quiet cup of tea in peace before I tackle the day.
Its a strange feeling not having anyone at home. Lunchtime is quite and I don’t have little hands picking things off my plate. I miss the noise and sounds of little voices. Its going to take some adjustments. As much as I am looking forward to some time away from the children, it will give me the opportunity to clean and tidy, do the shopping and continue full time with my blogging, I know I am going to miss them like crazy, and when 3.15 arrives I am going to do all I can to spend time with them. Close the computer and concentrate on them.
I am now officially a full time school mum.
