Like a lot of parents across the country it has been a week of getting back into a routine, packing lunches and taking the obligatory first day of school pictures. I think many of us can agree after just a week of school runs the carefree summer holidays feel like a lifetime ago. I wont lie, we are all exhausted, grumpy and emotional. It is such a juggling act and, due to being 26 weeks pregnant, I am feeling a lot more sensitive and anxious than usual.
I was dreading last year with Meme starting reception, such a huge milestone, but I found that I was equally dreading this year. I suppose, as a parent, you can’t help but worry and unfortunately I will probably feel the same every September. I was worried about Meme settling into year one and I was really nervous about Harri starting preschool. Luckily, I was the only one worrying, the girls took it in their stride, they were excited and ready to go with their new shoes on and lunchboxes full!!! They seemed to have nice days and come out with big smiles, much to my relief. Lately, life seems to be full of those moments were I just want to take it all in and hold it for a while, if that makes any sense – my girls seem to be changing so fast before my eyes.
So, after six weeks of adventures and lazy days, it’s back to normal. I am hoping for a smooth running September and, once the shock of the school runs has worn off, everything will run nice and easy with no drama, but with my two girls, hmmm, I think that’s doubtful!
How has your week been?
