After taking Meme to school for the last 2 years it was finally my little girls turn. Harri’s first day of school. She was excited, scared and nervous as was I. As I discovered last year when she started preschool experiencing these big milestones second time around does not make them any easier.
So off we all went – in typical manner the weather was heavy rain just the same as it was when Meme started school. I kind of guess this makes it a little easier as we are all dashing around – there was no big lingering goodbye as we were all just rushing to get out of the rain. I took her into her new classroom and there were children crying and one little boy trying to escape!! It was a little overwhelming but of course my little girl took it all in her stride.
It was long day and I was happy to pick her up at 3pm thankfully to big smiles. It has been a long week with all kinds of emotions and worries that is only natural – as I learnt when Meme started settling in takes time, adjusting to our new routine will take time, making new friends will take time….. but we will get there.
