I must be getting old – I have officially got a pre-schooler!
Max has started this week and it’s all different kinds of emotions for me.All except for sadness though. I don’t feel sad about it at all.
I’ve had a few people say to me:
“Oh, when he starts preschool will you cry?”
“It’s so emotional, I bet you’ll be crying as you walk home”
I really, really won’t be.
I did get the nickname ‘Ice Queen’ off my sisters as a teenager but before you think I’m completely heartless, hear me out.
It is such an exciting and happy time. He’s growing up, learning, and getting on with things. Max is so ready to be there too and I know it will really benefit him, as in my opinion, there are only certain things you can teach them at home.
When we went for the introduction days before the summer, Max didn’t even care that I was there. He just ran off to join in with the others, and that is totally fine by me. He is developing and growing and this is so important. Plus, it means some quieter time with just the girl and I, a few mornings a week, and I think it’s important that she has some one-on-one time too.
How did you get on when your little one started school?
Any other non-criers out there?

*Disclaimer – if you do / did cry, that’s totally awesome too (you’re probably a much nicer person than me haha)
I was just like you, my kids couldn’t wait to get going and I relished the time to get a little work done in those precious few hours! All part of growing up and if they can embrace each step that’s perfect.
Very true. Thank you
Aww he looks so happy! I am very much hoping that Monkey is that happy when he starts playgroup in January, as am a bit like you. I see his growing independence as a good thing and I doubt very much that I will cry about it! Xx #savouringtheseason
Ooh hope it goes well x
He’s not officially a pre-schooler until next September 😉 he’s so cute x
Haha thanks Emma x
Ahhh… My Ava started last week… and I didn’t cry. But I’m not going to lie… there were watering eyes! Only after I’d left her, and only for me, not for her! She is loving it… I’m just soppy and dramatic and felt like it was “the end of an era”! Ha!
A week in, and I’m definitely not crying any more. I miss her, but she’s loving it, and Heidi and I are getting lots of special time together! 😀 Thanks for linking up with #SavouringtheSeason
I think it helps when there is another one at home! Thanks Claire x
I was like that the first time round with my son. He needed the stimulation and loved it, while I needed some time with my twins. However, now my twins have started school and they are my last, it feels a lot different and very mixed emotions.
Glad he is enjoying it.
