It's that time of the year again when us mums are filled with mixed emotions, glad that the long summer holidays are over so that we can have a minute to ourselves but sad because our babies are growing up too fast. Riley started full time school today and although he loved nursery he wasn't very excited to go to 'big school'.
Everytime I mentioned school over the holidays he kept saying "I'm not big enough for big school Mummy, I'm still a baby". It's very hard to have to tell your child that they are big when really I wanted to say "you are still a baby to me and you always will be".
He looked so smart in his new uniform, we got everything except his sweatshirt and book bag from Nutmeg at Morrisons. Their school wear is super affordable and great quality, we also got his P.E. kit from there.
We had a few tears when I left him at school but he calmed down, he didn't eat each much of his lunch which I fully expected as he's not a very good eater at the best of times and he got upset again in the afternoon and ended up falling asleep in the reading corner but he was ok when I picked him up and fingers crossed by the end of the week he'll be all settled in.
How did your little ones get on with their first day back at school?
