But it's the first year that it's applied to us!
Here in Australia, the school year starts in late January/early February.
My miss5yo is starting school this year, and is very very excited about it!
We went uniform shopping yesterday, and got everything that we needed to send her off ... Sniff ... On her own ... Sob ... To start her schooling career.
Despite momentary emotional eruptions here and there from me, I really am fairly ready and happy for her- mostly because she is SO excited and raring to go!
Also because she is my first, I'm having all the usual feelings of 'where did the time go? How can she be this old?'
Par for the course with this parenting gig, really.
How did you feel when your little one went to school?
Have a lovely day!
