I’m joining in with Katie from Mummy, Daddy, Me this week for The Ordinary Moments. The idea is to capture and share the everyday moments in life, the little things.
This week has been all about back to school for us, and most other parent I think! After an amazing summer it’s back to reality and routine. I’ll miss the sunshine and lazy mornings but it is nice to have a bit of quiet in the house! And Max loves the routine and structure at school.
Max’s first week back has gone really well, he really couldn’t wait to go back. Despite his ASD he actually copes with change really well. To say he has a new teacher, new classroom, new ways of doing things and some new classmates he has coped with it all amazingly well.
Evie also went back to preschool this week but that hasn’t been quite so successful! I’ve mentioned before how upset she gets when I drop her off but I’d hoped that the break might have done her some good, but it hasn’t. She’s doing two full days on a Wednesday and Thursday and both days she was absolutely heartbroken, she clung to me and begged me to take her home 🙁 It’s so upsetting to leave her like that. On her first day they said she had been crying on and off but by the second day she had been fine and she couldn’t wait to tell me about all the fun she’d had.
I think her being upset when I leave her is something I’m just going to have to get used to, as long as I know she enjoys it after that initial cry, I guess I’ll just have to deal with it. Maybe she’ll adjust soon, hopefully. It’s been a long break for her and she’s gone back to a new building and new staff so a lot has changed.
It’s been lovely having cuddles when she gets back from preschool, we’ve really missed each other.
It’s safe to say both kids have been tired out this week. This is what after school usually looks like in our house, iPads and lazing on the sofa!
How has back to school been for you?
Thanks for reading.
