He starts big school in ten days.
I’m so excited for him but I’m also not coping.
He’s done preschool so this shouldn’t be that different. But that was only 2/3 days a week and this is EVERY day – so we won’t have any more Mummy-Thuddy days.
But he’s SO ready to go.
But he’s SO little and school is SO big and scary.
But he’s actually a giant and he towers over all the other five year olds. But wasn’t it yesterday he was my baby, falling asleep in my arms?
But he’s aching to learn, and grow, and make new friends. But he’s going to turn into a different person and I won’t be there to watch it happen.
But he needs (and wants) to be independent. But who will cuddle him when he’s upset?
But I’m ready to let him do it. But I also want to keep him like this forever.
But he needs more than just me. BUT HOW CAN THAT BE?
But thank God these holidays are nearly over. But when they’re over, that’s it – it’s the start of 13 whole years of schooling.
But, but, but… Jesus Christ, I’m not ok.
So yeah, that’s my brain right now.
