It's half-term and #3 son has made it through his first few weeks at school with very little incident. We are amazed and grateful at the same time and in equal amounts as we thought the change was going to be a nightmare. There have been a couple of small blips but nothing worth a mention here.
I think the person who gets most stressed out about going to school is me!
When we pick up the kids at home time we have to stand in a certain spot and when Teacher spots us she sends the appropriate kid out which is fine but, it's before that is the problem. A few minutes before the kids are due to be let out the door opens, Teacher sticks her head out and scans the parents. Her eyes darting back and forth until she spots the parent she's looking for then she steps out of the class, shuts the door behind her then strides purposefully towards her prey. I've now got all my fingers crossed chanting to myself please don't be me, please don't be me!
All eyes are now on Teacher as she strides across the playground and a huge sigh of relief goes out when she stops at a parent that isn't you. Then quiet as everyone stares at this poor parent and tries to listen to what went on during the day.
One day that parent was me!
Everyone looked, sighed and went silent as Teacher informed me that another child had bitten #3 son. What a bad parent am I?! I never asked if he was OK I was just so pleased he was bitten not the biter!
End of half-term report: #3 son doing fine but Dad must try harder!
