It’s now been 4 weeks since our Little Man started school and we are both so proud of him. He has been doing so well and has never once had any problem with going into school.
Each morning Little Man just walks off into class, hangs his coat up, puts his book bag away and he is really happy. Sometimes I even have to call him back for a kiss as he forgets.
Little man has mad a lot of new friends which is fantastic, he said he didn’t want any new friends just before he started school. He talks about how much fun he has at school and with his new friends a lot.
He now goes to bed A LOT earlier than he used to. Before we were lucky if he was asleep before 2230 most nights. Now he is at school both of us are very strict with bed time routine. Little man can choose if he wants to go to bed at 1900 and have his tv for half hour OR he can go to bed at 1920 and have a story. He is now always asleep before 2000 every night. This has made a huge difference to him and his morning routine and now Little Man wants to get up. On a nursery morning we used to have to wake him up, we had a massive fight to get him ready and to nursery on time.
He is loving going to after school club once a week and loves staying to play with his friends. They have a little tuck shop where he can choose something from. I set an amount he can spend and how many items he is allowed and then I get billed at the end of the month. I went to pick him up the other day and he said…. “Mummy I wanted to stay there longer” I am so glad he likes going as this is something that is a must when I am back to work.
The biggest thing we have a problem with is him being hungry. Little man is always so hungry when he comes out of school. I always have to take a jam sandwich to school with me so he can eat it on the way home. I then have to make him wait until dinner is ready.
All in all we are all so proud of how well he has done and is doing. Keep going Little Man your making us all very proud of you.
