Next week marks the first day of school for N, he’s been excitedly waiting for this day since his birthday a few months ago. I however, am not exactly dreading it but neither am I excited about it. There are many reasons for this, I’m a perpetual worrier (have I got everything?) One of the bigger worries for me is N is likely to be one of the youngest in the class and I’ve read the research about summer born boys.
I’ve made the choice that N will go to school this year and looking at his report from nursery he is ready for it but there is always that small feeling of doubt. His uniform is laid out in the box it arrived in waiting for its first outing next Monday.
Good luck to all mums and dads of children going in to reception, I think we need it more then they do.
