Induction Into Big School #3
H had his final induction last week at big school. Although I keep telling myself he isn’t ready I think judging from his last induction he actually is. It breaks my heart that he is leaving the comfort of play school and going to something that is completely different.
Last week, H went for a whole morning at school. I was able to go in and sit in on the assembly where he sat at the front, so tiny and vulnerable. It was quite a task getting 30 children to sit still for half an hour but they were really well behaved! Once the assembly was over H looked a little lost and the finger went in the mouth and his eyes widened. He was ushered away and that was it. I waved as he went choking back the tears and he didn’t turn back. I was half expecting him to cry but he didn’t. I wanted to check on him but I didn’t want to rock the boat, he seemed to have gone of so well.
I put my bag over my shoulder and left the school. I felt a little lost. I didn’t have my little mate with me and I was at a loss as to where to go!
Luckily it didn’t last long, and another mum offered up her lounge for a few hours. I had a good ole natter with some of the other mums and before we knew it our time was up! Off we went to collect them for lunch!
H ran from the classroom, I picked him up and he whispered in my ear how much he missed me. If only he knew how much I missed him! We were directed into the dinner hall, and soon we were sat eating a school dinner. I don think H was a fan and I can see me making packed lunches for him, but it was edible and tasted ok. It was good to see what the food was like!
After lunch we went out onto the field, I found Moo and we spent the next 30 minutes playing together. Moo has come so far, and I am so pleased at how ell she has come on. She was off playing, she coaxed H at one point and they were chasing each other round the field! I know she will look after him when he does start!
Thats the inductions done and the next time he goes, he will be kitted out in full school uniform.. I am not prepared for it and I have just over 7 weeks to finally come to terms with the fact my youngest, my baby, will be going to school full time *blub*
