Oliver Starts School

Thursday, 12 September 2013


This time last year I was writing about Oliver starting pre-school. I can't believe how quickly this year has flown and now he's started school. 

Tuesday was his first day and I've never seen him so excited. He got dressed in his uniform in record time with no shouting encouragement from me and he even asked for some gel in his hair! 


The short walk to school was hilarious. He was so hyper I couldn't get a decent photo of him. Luckily I took some nice photos the previous week when he'd tried on his uniform!

When we got to his classroom, his best friend was already there as he started a couple of days earlier. Oliver ran straight over and started playing with him. His new teacher Mrs Williams {who seems lovely} prised Oliver away and showed him where to hang his coat and bag, where to put his water bottle and where to put his name on the board. Then he was off. I managed to give him a quick kiss but he'd found much more exciting things to do. Walking home I had a huge lump in my throat and tears in my eyes but I managed not to cry.

So now I'm the mum of a schoolboy. I know it's a cliche but it really does seem like yesterday that he was a tiny baby and suddenly he's grown into a very tall independent four year old who loves his new school!
