So this week we received a letter to tell us that it’s time for us to apply for Evie school place for next September. Of course I knew this was coming but it still hits you, she’s my baby she can’t nearly be old enough for school, can she?!
I realise it’s still nearly a year away but we all know how fast a year flies by, she’ll be going to big school before I know it. And she was just a teeny tiny baby a few weeks ago, right?
She currently goes to preschool two full days a week and we’ve had a real nightmare getting her to settle. She is much better now but still gets teary about it and asks us not to make her go 🙁 Hopefully she’ll be much more settled by next September or it’ll break my heart having to leave her in tears not just two but five times a week!
I don’t remember feeling like this with Max, he was more that ready for school and so excited about it. I guess because he’s my eldest I just felt differently about him starting school, with Evie being my baby I feel really protective over her.
I’ve been putting off applying since the letter arrived earlier in the week but as I’m sat here writing this I’ve opened another tab and I’ve just completed her application *gulp*. At least it’s done now and we can forget about it until April at least when places are announced!
Thanks for reading.
