B, you are a school boy now. We are now deep into school drop offs and pick ups. At first, school was a breeze for us. You never batted an eye at starting it and spending all day there with your new friends. The first week you came home bouncing with excitement and even the first weekend you were so upset when you found out you don’t go every day. Those things are all still the case but my worse fears of starting school are slowing creeping in. You have been sick and bad tummy for the past two weeks. Between your Daddy, the teachers your principal and I, we are trying to locate the problem. It’s not a bug as it’s going on far too long. You have so many food allergies we are having to watch you closely when you eat and see if it’s something new your are allergic to. I am trying to be discreet always having to talk to your teacher, principal and the lunch lady for you. I don’t want the other kids picking up that you are different or need extra care. You are starting to mention kids not wanting to play with you. I have more fear than ever that you aren’t having the amazing experience you pretend to be having when I ask. I hope that you do really love it and the rest will sort itself out soon. I have noticed a huge difference in your personality and attitude towards things around you since you started school. Your emotions are running wild whether it’s happy or sad they seem so much more extreme. I wonder if school is tougher on you than I thought. Maybe it’s not a breeze and with you only just cutting your nap out, I think you are struggling more than ever and I hate that. I hope we get to the bottom of this so I can have my healthy, happy, sweet boy back. Daddy and I are ever so worried about you.
MM, my little bike rider. This week you have been full of a cold. Your first proper cold with that pesky runny nose that I am so glad you rarely get. You haven’t been yourself really since B started school and you started nursery. It’s been a tough week for all of us this week but you are still the strong one of the family, holding us together like glue. You still laugh, smile and giggle your way through a bad day. I love that about you. We had family photos this weekend and you tried your best with a slight fever and a nose that was sore you somehow still made a great effort (more than the photographer but that’s another story). You have been doing so great on your bike rides to the park after school with B. I think it’s amazing that you always strive to beat him in a race. I can see your competitiveness starting already like your Momma. We are so excited because we found you a new nursery this week, closer to home. Your first trial day went amazing and you already have a friend you know in the class which makes it easier. I am so excited that we can walk there together and its just going to be better for us all, I can feel it. You start next week and I have my fingers crossed that you will be happier and more settled in this new nursery.
